Default Racing Dots for OnRoad track?

I'm trying to get a good practise track going that can be set up and torn down quick. The yeloow plastic dots seem to move alot and the Road Domes can be pricey and move too. Does anyone know where I can get the metal ones that SoCal uses? From what I've heard, they're farm plow discs.

Thanks. Doing my own research I've found that is what they are. Finding a farmer is another story. Living in San Diego area makes farms farther away than I'm used to. Anywhere on line I can find cheap used ones?

Buying them online means shipping and that would probably make it not worthwhile. Id think you could find a machinery dealer close somewhere to help you out.

Having a hard time tracking them down. If they're really that cheap, even wtih shipping, the total cost won't be bad compared to stuff like road domes.

Default Plow disks

We use the plow disks also. just a heads-up, we STILL welded some plate steel to the bottom to weigh them down more.

Integy, Cross and Racer's Edge all make the rubber type discs in flourescent colors..I think Racer's Edge are the cheapest. I use plow discs at my track, but even living in Kansas, it wasn't a breeze to find a dozen or 2 discs in good shape.

...and Agriculture Impliments shops usually don't give the plow discs away, unless they are trashed. New ones run about $20 a piece! Save your money and time...get the rubber discs.

if u guys are talking about the wheels on a disks(what some are called) shipping them will be expensive........each wheel weighs more than 10lbs each.........even some of the smaller three piont disks the wheels weigh in at about 5lbs and are 10" in diameter.........i lived and worked on a farm for 18 out of my 27 years......getting new ones form a dealer can be pricey but they might have a few left over before they are shipped for scrap metal

Thanks guys. Wow, tracking some down is more of a pain in the ass than I thought. How do farmers deal? Do they just bite the bullet? Maybe I'll get lucky in my area.
