Drifting yes, regular racing, maybe on foams, but the rubber tires do not hook up on the surface, plus to make a big enough track, it's a lot of $$, you would be better off buying some generic ozite carpet for a simple racing surface.

Rubber does work as does foam. It grooves up nicely but you do not see the groove as well as you do on carpet. We have run multiple events on it and were very very happy. If you are buying ultimately carpet will be cheaper and some what easier to put down and take up if needed.

Do a you tube search for MMR challenge, 2009,8,7 were all on rcp

I have about $1000 invested in RCP...and its a mini-z track. Imagine what you'd be spending for larger scales.
