I have heard CRC carpet is around $3.75 to $4.25 square feet. Someone correct me if I am wrong. Or if you know the Calandra's I have heard they give you a awful good deal you cant refuse. This is just what I have heard, might be wrong though

i dono whats a good size for a tight 19t-stock track?

we are in the richmind area and no one near (within 50 miles) here has
a decent track or anything over stock

and we were thing about staring one up if we get enough people intreseted

so were pretty much out on a limb and flying blind

Default in richmond too

hey, I'm in richmond too.
Yeah, there's no indoor carpet track around. I have to drive all the way
to the track in MD to race.
I heard Hobbytown USA will be setting races in the summer.
How many of you are there?

I think it is around $4 a square yard.

in my experience a small tight track good for stock and 19 turn is about 75x36ish...the only thing is that it limits your layouts that you can make ...if you can spare more room go for it

The CRC carpet is sweet. Decent traction from day one. Doesn't require a huge amount of laps on it before traction comes up, which is nice for a club track.

I'm sure Richmond could easily support a good carpet track. That would be sweet. That would put me right between two good tracks. You guys do know that there is a nice track in Chesapeake at Debbies RC World?

opps ment square yard. When have run 1/10 scale cars in a small track that was 25'x65'. Pretty small but very fun. 3 or 4 at a time was max. The track was really built to run our micro cars

Quoted from the Calandra Racing Concept website.


"Specifications (for 12 foot Fasttrak)


Weight: 1 roll 160 x 12 weighs about 190 lbs. Two men can handle the roll with some effort.


Shipping Charges: Shipping for the 12 foot Fasttrak is done by Motor Freight only, no UPS or Post. The carpet ships from our warehouse in the Northeast USA. Typical charges range from $100 to $300 depending on quantity and location. A 2 roll shipment to the mid west is about $150. A 2 roll shipment to the west coast is approximately $250. These are just some rough estimates on shipping costs. E-mail for a more definite shipping price.


Pricing and roll sizes?..

We have 3 target roll sizes for CRC Fasttrak, 80, 100 feet and 160 feet. This material is always 12 foot wide. So, a roll 100' x 12' is 133 square yards and a roll 160' x 12' is 219 square yards of carpet. We occasionally get "wildcard" rolls both longer and shorter than our target size of 80/100/160 feet, call for availability of "Wildcard" rolls.


Price:
Less than 275 square yards (one 160 foot roll or two 100 foot rolls) $4.25 per square yard
275 - 500 square yards $4.00 per square yard
500 plus square yards $3.75 " " "
MINIMUM ORDER - 1 full uncut roll 80 x 12 or the smallest full "wildcard" roll we have in stock at the time."

This is just for the carpet. It is hard to calculate how much money it would cost for the barriers because it depends on the size and layout you want. Plus there are a few different options for materials to make barriers that affect the total cost.

Default hobbytown

I live in Richmond.
The new hobbytown is on west broad st x parham road.

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=l&hl=e...58791,0.261955

They said they may have the whole parking lot to themselves in the summer.

Have you guys raced here before in the southside? http://www.vorra.org/
I read that they also race electric... I will go check it out next summer.

For the meantime, I think I will check out Debbie's world too.
