Virtually every opportunity I have had to run on a wood floor was a wild ride. It didn't matter if I had rubber or foam tires.
If you would expound on what you are trying to do it would help. My guess it is in a gym of some sort for a show or event.
Anyway... I would suggest you do some sort of drift competition. The surface would be prefect for that.

Years ago we ran on a painted concrete floor and would coat the foam tires with rtv silicone. The trick was finding the rtv that worked best.

GE silicon II adhesive/sealant. Works good. That's what we used when the SUGARBOWL was open and running SMOOTH clay oval. The trick is to not make it TOO thick.

Very true, thin coats worked best. We raced at the Sidney Nebraska Armory on a painted concrete floor, but that was around 15 to 20 years ago.:thumbsup:
