Can anyone tell me the right way to put down Ozite? I just got two used rolls and its going on the floor of my basement. I want it to be quickly removable so that when I paint the floor and walls I can roll it out of the way.

Ginsu ...... I own Stockton RC Raceway in Stockton, Ca. and we are a temp track. We have to setup and tear dowm on a monthly and I would have to recomend the new CRC Fast Track racing carpet. We've had Daytona carpet which was the CRC stuff about 4-5 years ago and that was good but we ran thru that in 3 seasons. We then bought Fanfare and that was ok. We experienced all the problems that have been described here and others. This year we bought the new CRC Ruber backed carpet and the stuff is awsome. I may have spent a bit more money then fanfare but well worth every penny. We paid $2500 for 4 100' rolls shipped to California shipping was $500. If you want to talk email me or call me at 209-481-2879

I could be wrong but...one of the reasons why I was told Ozite was used is because it is anti-static...running electric cars around on a carpet that could generate a lot of static electricity might not work out so well.

I heard the same thing. Out of all the carpet tracks I have raced on (5 in total) only one of them did not use CRC-brand Fasttrak-HD racing carpet. That was Mike's Hobby Shop in Carrollton, TX. Mike bought his carpet from a local contractor's supply warehouse. The carpet had the Ozite's brand name on it.

I did some research and found that Ozite's carpets have an anti-static feature that’s a permanent part of the nylon carpet fiber. Technically, it's a carbon core inside the nylon fiber that conducts electricity and it cannot be lost or broken down by cleanings or wear.

Check out Ozite's web page.

Yes. I have been looking for sources of Ozite carpet because the DFW Metroplex no longer has a carpet racetrack.
