Default Looking for Track corner markers.

I remember Tamiya selling the yellow disks to mark the corners years ago. Now all I find are the small cones which the cars will just knock off.
Does anyone know where I can buy the Tamiya yellow disks?
TIA.

Not sure if this helps:

We've been racing using them outdoors and the only downside is they need to be taped to asphalt. I'd assume on carpet that they'd stay put.

Road Dome also makes some and the downside of the road domes is that they launch cars up into the air if hit right.

I've also made some home made ones using dollar store dinner plates. Plastic and china plates. I put a bead of silicone around the edge and paint them safety orange.

You better be at 5 US dollars a piece. They are 1.50 US dollars at Integy, each.

I saw them too but aren't they just flat? Tamiya ones are dome shaped and they punish the drivers who try to run over them and it makes it more fun.

You can also use plow discs from large farm equipment. They are made of steel, not flat, and deffinately don't move We use them at our local track outside and they work awesome. Best part is they are normally free. You just need to find a farm and go and ask as they need to be replaced on the equipment yearly, but work fine for corner markers for many, many years.

It's been a long time but RC CarAction had a small article about using a polyurethane (I think) resin and a frisbee as a mold

You guys have never used Tamiya ones... they do not move easily unlike the picnic plates or frisbees. Tamiya makes the best products on Earth.

Edit: haha... I am a funny guy.

Integy one's are NOT flat, they are domed as well and don't move.
