Just wondering wat the diff's are between the two rugs? Were about to rug our new banked oval and were wondering wat to do. Is CRC the only place to get ozite?

It's the only place to get the same carpet they run at the snowbirds. But in reality you can use just about any anti static short pile carpet out there. We have Ozite at our track but we travel to a track a couple hours away that does not have it and we all race and have a great time.

Loop carpet is really hard to get a groove in, but it will work. Plan on a year or so of crazy stuff on the loop carpet. Once it gets a groove it is good to go for longer than Ozite. Ozite breaks in really quick.

We started out using only Jack, then went to the odorless paragon and now everyone is on sticky fingers. I like the sticky fingers the best

Hey Guys,
I'm the track owner. we're wondering if the level loop will be hard on tires for a banked track with 8deg straights & 14 deg corners. Hey Joel (J-dub), What kind of carpet did Dave Prescott have at Fairfield?

In my experience, loop carpet produces more grip, harder on tires, and sometimes can cause the cars to dogtrack due to the directional grain. Ozite is consistent, easier on tires, no grain, and racers are more willing to come out to your track since it's the standard for carpet racing. My advice, spend a little extra on the Ozite.
