YES it does work. we use them in our cars every raceday. 3/4 od x 1 5/8 long. Much better then the foam ones.

Back in the day we used the plastic center roll out of a paper calculator roll. It is super strong, lighweight, and dyeable (cheap too)-Jeff

The center from the roll of paper (c/c card thermal printers) is about the best you can use. They're free (just ask any retailer next time you're in a store) they're light and like Dub mentioned you can dye them if you want to.

I have used the cork from a wine bottle, and put a single cell shrink wrap on it. They are very dense and dont weigh much. And of corse you cant let the wine go to waste! Party on!

BRP has some super foam stuff..super light and FIRM..you can't dent it with a fingernail no matter how hard you push...and yet it weighs nothing..

Lots were using that in Cleveland...I think his booth sold out of it as soon as people saw it...

sorry..I din't have a part number..but check out Buds Racing Products for more info..he has all kinds of crazy cool stuff
