Has any track laid the new carpet down without a sub floor? Our track is due for new carpet soon and we have always just laid it on concrete. Never had an issue with traction but I'm just not sure how the new carpet will respond.

LSRCC in Superior, WI can be added to the list and it is also a track without a subfloor. They have had very good success with this method without any issues.

I don't think traction is the issue with no sub floor. Well poured concrete is nice but sub floor equals pool table.

HoB Max isn't on sub floor.

No issues with traction there.

I think 5280 is pretty good approximation of what you'll encounter at IIC. We have a similar dry climate which can affect traction. Right now we still have the MHIC layout up, so grip is SUPER high and very sticky. Can't say for certain how much longer that will be the case, but the track does seem to groove up relatively quickly on new layouts.

If you decide to head this way, drop by our thread and leave us a message. We do most of our talking on 5280's Slack chat now, but still keep an eye on the thread.

If you haven't been on the black rug yet, you're doing the right thing by getting some time on it first. It's very different, and the things you need to do to keep the cars from flipping over (gluing tires) requires some time to get right. It would be difficult to figure out with the limited track time at IIC.

Also Smith built Rc "the rug" in Winston NC. They do have a subfloor, I can't tell a difference between ho b max and the rug as far as traction.

I'm thinking about going to 5280 for some pre IIC testing, but it is difficult to plan with the Elias summer classes and my work schedule. What tires are preferred for mod 1/12? still the blue/green? you are selling tires at the track?
Thank you

Not sure on mod 1/12, I imagine Chris Hillier will chime in soon, he's our resident mod 1/12 expert.

We have Gravity tires for sale, the same as IIC is using. Not sure what the status is on 1/12 tires, you may want to bring them.

We don't have a hobby shop or really much of anything here other than SXT and some tires. You'll likely want to bring everything you need.

Adam, are you guys going to be open the week before the IIC in Vegas? Are you having any kind of warmup race prior to IIC? Thanks

We've been discussing it. Let me get Brent in here to talk about it, I'm out of town at that time for my wife's birthday.
