Default Back yard SC track

I'm building a SC track in my backyard for my son and I and wanted to know what to use for the borders around the track that are fairly cheap.

we use the standard 4" perf sewer line... its what you can get at any Ace Hardware or Home Depot in 100ft and 250ft sections... generally its around $50 for 100ft...

Talking Drainage line

I have built a track in my back yard. The Perf stuff, I would not use. The reason is when the pipe gets old, that is the point where it will easily start to tear. But.. since it is winter and since it is raining somewhat, the perf stuff if turned down, will drain out. I have some water in mine,but, now of course the pipe won't move.

the reasons I use it are simple...lol its cheaper at my store... and I change my track so much that I end up cutting and mending areas a lot... there ARE two different perfs... one being the slits and one being the round holes... I really dont like the round holed one... but that all they had this time around...

Try your local fire department!

Ask them if they have any old fire hose that will be tossed out. My local club did this and it works great. Fill the fire hose with sand and it is heavy enough to stay in place, flexible, and is easy on the cars when you hit it.

Happy racin!

We use old mooring ropes from the local port.
They have to replace them regularly and give them to us.
