Anyone know a company making cheap corner dots to use on a carpet track?

Thanks...

We use plastic plates (dinner size) used upside down of course.
They were really cheap and they last for ages

We use plow disks, they work great and they're cheap. Either find somebody who has them used, or go to any sort of a farm-supply store and they will probably have them.

We use 1 foot diameter round discs of wood that are velcroed to the carpet. They dont move no matter how hard you hit them, and you soon learn to be a better drive cause it u do hit one hard you can say bye bye to your wishbone lol

I share Bosscat's idea. You can go to the dollar store and pick up a whole set of highly visable plastic plates for cheap and they work!

Anyone know the price for the Tamiya 53190 corner markers?

Maybe a website where I can find the price?

You can check Soccer USA or anyother store that specializes in soccer equipment and get some bubble practice cones. They are like a dinner plate turned upside down sort of...and are dirt cheap too.
