Default New pit mats

I just had a vendor come in and show me some pit mats for race cars and he had one that was 18x24 as a demo. He left me one to look at and show around. They are available in multiple colors. Colors available are black, red, blue, green, and pink. Im testing fuel worthyness tonight when i get home. He is gonna call me with pricing and Go from there. These are 18oz vinyl with folded seemed edges. Im impressed with these so far can wait to go home and try durability testing. I have his card so I can stay in contact with him. Teaser pic

Nope these are extremely thick and wont come with the grommet holes. He had left me samples for 1:1 race cars and this was designed to withstand 3000 lbs without being damaged. The rep was nice enough to give me one to try and see how it holds up to the stuff we use in rc. I will have better pics of it when i get home and start testing chems on it. I just compared it to a few banners i have around the shop and this material is way thicker and tougher than any of the banners.

Still think they look like banners to me but thick. They dont need to hold 3000lbs, they look like you can buy them cheap. If price is good it would be worth a shot but imo not shooting it but they dont look like they will get alot of ahhs. Maybe iron on names or graphic would make it seem more buy able. Its a demo and thats my opinion and thats what people want so i hope i didnt sound mean but helping.

No pricing yet. Im fixing to upload pics. I set it on fire with fuel only 10 seconds but it only shows a little spots on the edge. Shock oil and fuel both wiped right off leaving no residue. Pricing by end of the week. I can do stuff to spruce it up. The brass rings wont be on the version talked about today.

Thank you for your opinion and it was the feedback i was looking for. It does need a logo or something but mine is fine without one. Mine is a demo of one that is 10ft by 10ft. I thought about getting one to put under the tent. Even if they never make it to production they got some free durability testing.

No prob if rings get takin off they wont look so bannerish, and with decals shoot i might want one.

Pics uploaded here we go.

I started this project like I would be setup on race day. Starter box, tools, car, fuel, shock oil.


My starter box used to slide around a bit it didnt even think about moving around on the mat.

First test was shock oil. I used AE 50wt for this test.


For the fuel side I used some Byrons 25% I put some on the mat and wiped it off and you couldnt even tell. So I did it again this time letting it sit.


Shock oil on the left, fuel on the right.


After a 15minutes I wanted to see what it looked like. But 1 thing.... I set it on fire first. Let it burn for 10 seconds and put it out. Wiped the residue away and here is what it done.


To clean everything up i used a dry towel.

Nice pics,

Some Logo's might be nice, but I'm kind of diggin the plain look. Wonder what the cost would be? If it's in the 30 to 50 dollar range, they just might have intrest in the product. I like the idea of a 10x10 mat for the E-Z-Ups, that maight be a better option if the cost is right. Looks good though.

Sorry say but it looks like a banner, I just had some made and hung for my wifes buisness and they looked like that. I dont think your gonna get any sales on this forum. You have to be a little more creative, there are a lot of racers on this forum and they know qaulity when they see it. Good luck

This is an idea at this time. If the company that does the big one decides to produce a smaller one based off a sample product they already produce. Table mats will not have the brass grommets. As for it looking like a banner its made from similar material. Its 18oz vinyl material.

Pricing will be available to me by Friday. I will get prices on the 10x10 mats.
