Default ALTERNATIVE FOR OZITE CARPET

First off
1- IT IS FOR MY BASEMENT AND WILL BE WALKED ACROSS AND 1/18 CARS RAN ON IT

2- I do not care about carpet fuzz

3- I don't care if the traction is the same as crc ozite

So what carpet have you used as a alternative to ozite,
Im thinking boat carpet or auto floor and speaker box
--As long as it's a non woven carpet---

Go to your local Menards/Home Depot and look for carpet pad. There are some that are similar to Ozite.

How about using interlocking rubber mats like you see in garages?

Here is a thread on RCTECH that might help (http://www.rctech.net/forum/micro-mi...cro-track.html)

Another thread using carpet (http://www.rctech.net/forum/micro-mi...ent-track.html)

It is not carpet, but 5mm Regupol (rubber floor impact insulation) has been used for smaller scale racing.
