Obviously there's a lot of grip but it doesn't look like carpet.
There's another vid from the same place from last year on youtube, running nitro cars. Is this a permanent track? It's the same layout.
Thats a track thats only built on the days of the "Modellbau Friedrichshafen".
A Model-Toyfair with a lot of practical Modeling shows inbetween the stands
and halls. Its beside a Airfield and theres a great show there. They even have
a hall with a swimmingpool for Sailboats and Submarines... and there is
a radiocontrolled subway too....
It is that race I did those foamies for.. guess what tires were on the podium
It is a asphalt floor not like on tracks. its shiny. No idea what it is called in
english, not even german. Anyway they spray a dragstertrackbite god knows
what it is onto that.
Then there are the Nitrocars doing laps and laps. We share the track with 1:10th
and 1.8th Nitros for the weekend.
The only thing that works are foamies.. but it is unbelievable. You have to been
there to know what I am talking of. Luckally only insiders know of this race
otherwise we would be holding the world championship there every year
Just as a comparison: Compared to 1:8th Nitros we did 143% of car times.
(Example: Bike 23,337sec. divided by Car 15,558 sec.....equals 150%)
If you know the times of 1.8th cars on your hometrack and divide the best
times with yours you know what I am talking about.
A excelent time for a Bike is usually between 147- 156% of that of a 1.8th Nitro.
(There is only a singel track where this formula doesnt apply
On the Video from last year you see some biking too:
