Default Ozite Substitute ?

We need carpet for practice and general play use suitable for pancars. We will not be holding any official races on this so the quality does not have to match that in use by legitimate tracks. Any ideas for those of us on a budget? We would prefer something with a foam or rubber backing.Thanks for any and all information.

A surface suitable for anything larger than 18th scale would costs them a fortune....

You could also find a track that just put in new carpet and possibly get a deal on their old stuff.

There is also a carpet called "sunquest simplicity model 89 misty colour" this is basicly the same as ozite we are told and is quit a bit cheaper.

Before someone bash's on ozite being batter and stuff this is just info for those that want a cheaper source
