Call Frank at CRC. They make the carpet and can tell you what you need to know.

Matt John picked up the tape on Friday and we have half the track down right now. We will be able to finish it up tomorrow. The stuff we are using is working well for us. Come on by and check it out.

And Dennis next time you are visiting the Lou (St Louis) stop by our new track. We will be racing next weekend Oct 3rd for oval and 4th for road course.

It is not the same as servo double sided tape. It is what is used to seam thin carpet together for a permanent track.
