I didnt race RCs, but i raced my YZ450 flat tracker indoors in the winter on a coke syrup prepped track. Major hookup! And the track would blue groove up. It was a concrete floor. Good times!

Cool, you raced karts on it,then you know! As far as clean up goes....no idea. A guess would be an industrial concrete floor soap, such as Zep makes. You use a large push broom and water to scrub the floor. We did it in the winter in upstate Ny. It was freezing cold inside. It had to be a ton of work to clean up for the race promoter! One place you could post this question on would be flattrack.com. if you want to know their tricks. Good people on that site.

I would recomend VHT traction compound. You can put it down with a garden type hand pump sprayer. Google it and check it out
