What is the dimensions of the track ? Anyone know how old the carpet is and how worn ? After 5 years at TQ, the grey ozoite carpet was worn through in areas almost to the sub-floor. Thank you.

Itís in pretty good shape but at least 5 years or more. Grip is really good once the groove comes up which is pretty quick. I believe itís around 90x50...I could be off but itís right around that. The facility is massive...tons of pit space, tons of parts, bodies, tires etc on hand.

TCS Rules -

Is there any performance difference in the SPEC #1016 S-Grip pre-made tire versus the build your own sets for TCS? Other then the color of the rims?

The older S-grip premounts were a lot firmer rubber...but the newer premounts and the unbuilts are the same newer softer s -grips.

Iíd imagine that setup would work fine with the 05 too. For 06s we just ran premount hard As up front with premount S grip rears.

Thanks for the info. When the gray ozite got really worn at TQ, it made the track a one groove wonder. Traction roll in the groove if not careful and push like a dump truck if you went off line. But nice thing about gray carpet is gluing front side walls is not 100% mandatory. Would make for a cool road trip and I am decent on carpet. Need to look at vacation time for end of year as our local nitro track (Steel City Speedway) has the 1:8 IFMAR worlds this year end of year also.
