If your going to use carpet,do yourself a favor and get the green astro turf looking indoor outdoor stuff.Regular carpet will unravel and get stuck in the wheels and axles of your cars

Thanks guys it has been alot of work but when we stand on that driverstand its all worth it..

All the jumps are tested and true so we dont get no crybabies out there. we have had a 19t make every jump except for the tripples he had to double single it.
