Default BOTT DOTS

Does anybody know where I can buy the bott dots used at races such as the ETS?

The usually Orange/Yellow ones is what I have in mind.

Thanks!

We use plow disc. They are bigger heavier and will send a car in the air if you hit it dead on. But they are better than nothing. Look pretty good when painted red and white.

bot dots are evil and should be banned from all forms of racing #JustSaying

Best deal going for smaller dots. Cars handle them well. We use a few on our current track. Our new track will be incorporating many more! In fact we have over 140 ready to go if need be!!!

Three small pieces of hook side velcro and they don't move easy.

Better than hitting the piping which tears your wishbones apart!
Prefer them as they unsettle the car, but without launching it high into the air.

Skiddins
without launching the car into the air ?

thats the only reason why i hate them because they launch cars into the air. last week at the Essex Winter Series i saw marshals jumping cars at knee level because they had hit a bot dot and took off. i do like how they round corners on tracks but they are dangerous when hit wrong imo.

Plough discs are the most eveil of all corner markers. They destroy cars and absolutely launch cars to the heavens

Bot dots are the best track markers by a mile.

The problem is people are convinced they can use them as a curb... Which they aren't designed for.

Pretend it's a brick wall and you'll be fine

Funny how a simple question of asking for help to find a product turns into a hard thought discussion of what should and shouldn't be used for track markings
