    Steel Braid

    Racers:
    Have any of you guys raced on a flat track that has STEEL BRAID instead of the normal copper clad braid, if you have what was your opinion or experience like. Our biggest concern would be for the Eurosports and the magnets they use, any info or input would be appreciated.
    Thanks Ron & Tri State ISRA Guys

    Racers:
    Not interested in buying it, just need info from guys who have raced on it, possible new track for our series next year. They have a new flat track, but it has STEEL Braid not the normal copper clad stuff.
    Thanks Tri State ISRA

    I guess I will be the guinea pig, if you hear a loud #$@&^! that will be me picking out the braid shrapnel from the cobalts, hopefully I can get there in a couple of weeks. I will report back, good or bad!
    Thanks Ron Tri State ISRA

    I built a magnetic 1/24 dragstrip and feel it is the way to go. ONE TSRF type traction magnet near the rear axle/motor area, full magnetic braid in launch and shutdown, 50% magnetic braid in high speed area with only spray glue racing conditions.

    Hello:
    Not really looking to reinvent Eurosports, just want to race them as is w/ no problems.

    Ron,

    If your worried about how they react on Magna braid. Don't I have run my Eurosport up there a couple times just to play and make some noise those guys haven't heard, and the handle just as they do on normal braid.
