Default Road Rail

I have a road Rail kit, but I do not have the corner cones, I can not get in touch with Roaddome, I think they have closed. Can somebody, please tell me where I can get some corner cones.

I don't know, but I think I've seen Road dome ads in RC CAR ACTION so they probably aren't out of business. Just go to roaddome.com and find their number and call them. Hope this helps.

I went to the web page, the # they have listed, has been disconnected. I have also sent them emails, but no reply.

ROAD RAMPS ARE FUN FOR THE SPECTATORS AND THE PARTS COUNTER.

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THEM.

just post looking for road dome parts cheap and I'll be you'll get a lot of people calling you to get rid of the crap.

I couldn't agree with Nash any more. We tried them and nick-named them
rocket ramps. If they're out of business it wouldn't surprise me in the least!

We've used them for years and really like them. Sure cars catch some minor air off them but better that then smacking a 2x4. Over all they work very well and cause considerably less damage then the typical hard barrier.

I can't stand those road ramps. Give me a 2x4 anytime.

Guys take it easy on this poor guy. His group has already purchased the Road Dome. But it's missing pieces so they have nothing. Personally I would take them to task in small claims court. Here is the best I can do for you.

Not giving the guy a hard time about something he already bought. However, maybe he should consider not investing more money into something he may not end up being happy with. The reason we hated the roadrails so much is that there's nothing worse than driving your car in your lane just to have another car from a different portion of the track get launched head first into your car. Talk about unexpected damage and carnage!!!

Read above. With the rocket ramps, you don't have to hit anything. Other cars simply come flying out of nowhere.

My personal name for them is Launch Rail for that is what it does if you hit it with your car, it launches it to some other place on the track!!

Sorry about my lame joke. Seeing how I have never used them, I guess I should not have said it. However I would like to use them for say practice, you know when you can't get to the track but would like to run some packs.

If you setup the track right you can easily minmize accidents from traffic from the other lane flying over into your lane...even so such accidents usually just hit body and don't do as much damage as smacking into a 2x4...which can also launch a car, just not as often.
