Default Easy to setup micro carpet track for Mini-Z, WLToys K989, Losi Micro etc.

Hi all, right now the sun is shining and it is time for driving RC outdoor, but when it's a rainy day and you feel the need for some RC racing, it is good to have your own living room track you can prepare i few minutes. I have made my own track using a cheap carpet (type: needle felt, or exhibition carpet), some soft rope and a hot glue gun. It takes 1-2 hours to create and then only a minute roll out and start racing and a minute to roll up and tick away. I am surprised how well it works, I have been using this carpet for more than a year and used it many times and it is still in perfect condition, the hot glue is flexible and strong enough to stay in place. I made this video on how to create and use it. Enjoy :

This kind of carpet is the cheapest kind you can get and in Denmark it is something the have in all stores that sell carpets.

Do you feel the ribs in the carpet have any effect in the handling? In my search for a temporary carpet solution, I have been avoiding the carports with textures.
Also would you say this stuff is similar? https://www.homedepot.com/p/TrafficM...144H/203240727

Looks like same kind of carpet. I donít see a difference if I drive across or along the ribs so donít think there affect that much. Lots of grip
