I got the p.t. in to day. I may have gotten a couple extra. They are still $71.50 instead of $84 from AMB.
Thanks,
John

Hey!
That looks like the new modular track material originally developed for the MiniZ crowd and they are making it for larger 10th and 12 scale now. Hank talked about it on the Chicago Hobby Show. It is really slick design. Mac's Tom Thumb here in Columbus has the Mini Z track. It is the foam interlocking panels and one side has a high traction surface and it goes together fast and they have cool red/white rumble curbs for the corners and chicanes and it is very easy to change. It costs about the same as ozite
and when a tile is damaged (like ozite wears out) you change those panels.
It is really cool stuff and I think that is what they are using.
Harry or DeepBlue please confirm or correct me.
That is a cool track and it is neat to race outdoors in the winter. AZ has that too.
They don't race outside in the peak of summer (100-120F) fries equipment.

The stuff I have seen at Tom Thumbs takes the panels like at Lowes or Home Depot and applies a rubbery grippy kind of material that has a slight texture. It gives excellent traction for rubber and foam tires.
I've seen what they are using at Home Depot in bundles of what? 4x6 or 4x4 feet packages. It wasn't real cheap.

Will there be any racing this weekend? I am coming down from Atlanta and just got a RC18T and there is no where to run it here. I run 1/12 at tfbraceway. Do you have anymore PT in stock? I have one in my 1/12 but don't know if I will remove it for this. If not thats cool I work right beside AMB and can stop by there and pick one up but cost a bit more than your price.

Deep Blue has transponders so you won't need to buy a PT. Both of us have the new RC18t.I know I've got different tires that he's got. He's using the trinity tires and I've got both the losi street treads and the BSR foams(Purple and plaid fronts and white rears).They worked good on my old Mini-T.They don't race 1/12th here.See you Sunday

Bill I have the tires that came with the kit. Do you or the hobby shop have tires? I would like to get the foams so if people show up at TFB I will have the right tires for the carpet.

I think I saw at the beginning of this thread that the races are on Sat is this incorrect?

Yes they race on Sundays. They probably don't have the foams from BSR. They do have the losi street threads- just get four rears. They worked great on the rubber surface when I had my mini-t.But then my BSR foams also worked well.You can try the foams out if you like. See you sunday.

We have the foams for the RC18T however they are not on the site till like next week. Fronts are purple orange and rears are purple. They kick on carpet. BSR makes them for us by the way :)
