One last bit of information... we will be using the carpet only once a week and will be rolling it out and up each time we run. From the information I am getting, the new DuPont carpet is quite thin and is best used on a very smooth surface and glued down or taped firmly in place. Our surface is smooth concrete with terrible expansion joints and the carpet can not be taped to the floor.

It's looking like the CRC Daytona may be the way to go.

STAY AWAY FROM THE CRC CARPET!!!!!

My local carpet track purchased this carpet first and ended up having to get other stuff. The CRC carpet is "woolly" and will sieze up bearings till no end. Don't make a ~$4000 mistake!

I REPEAT, DO NOT GET THIS CARPET

Default Fanfare Carpet

We had our first race on fanfare this weekend. Everyone loved it. It only leaves a very light white fuzz on the cars.

We are using it only once a month, and have to roll it up after we are done. We had it rolled up for a week from the last race. I was pretty worried at first; it had a lot of wrinkles. But they all worked out over night very nicely.

We have a concrete floor with one big expansion joint. We covered it with the silver tape that they use for A/C ducts (not duct tape). It worked out very well. We are not taping it to the floor.

I would say go for the fanfare carpet. It's very nice and much more affordable than CRC.

51,
Where is your "local" carpet track? Competiton Hobbies in Tucson?I didn't think there was a carpet track in the Phoenix area.

Yea, C.H. It's more local than any other carpet track.
