  • Type Of Drag Strip Paint

    Also what paint would be best for a drag strip surface and we will be using traction oil. We have used flat latex on our other road course tracks. Any suggestions

    You're not going to use traction glue?

    This is what is recommended by some of the top drag strips in the States.

      The best surface if painting is as smooth and glossy as possible when using traction glue!
      Not sure exactly what type of paint to use but enamel comes to mind

              Another silly question but I would assume for the drag strip surface (we are using rustoleum oil base) that you would want the surface super smooth for the best traction. We were planning on using traction oil. Should the surface be gloss also semi gloss and will semi gloss cause any traction problems?

                Most of the better commercial track builders (Road course and Drag) use a gloss surface (Rustoleum 2 part epoxy)..........their belief (and I believe them) is that the gloss does provide a bit better traction, and more importantly, holds spray glue better.
                This is likely too late to be of any help...sorry.

              In my experience the gloss surface becomes semi gloss with use....

                That would be true because of the rubber and glue being put down on every past , Should be just like a real drag strip .
