Re: Still undecided: Racedeck/MotoFloor/Swisstrax

Unless you have a huge garage, the extra cost / tile is not that significant, especially b/c the garage journal discount from RD will also ship it for free.

Re: RaceDeck, Swisstrax, or similar within 100 miles of Detroit?

I would offer, but I am all the way in the cleveland area. Not too far, but not close either. Why not just use the $$$ you would have spent on the beer and gas and purchase yourself 20-30 tiles...
