Build it with posts. But make it in sections. So like 3x3 sections then just make one a little shorter to accommodate for the carpet ( put extra on the first and 3rd and have them lay on the second ) worked in my head hope it understand

Im thinking you should make sections like Juggernaut said. Make them easy to take apart and put together. Heck, you can even make it like one of those build your own track things with pieces that fit together to make a new track every time. This isn't gonna be a short build. But a long one, good luck.

Modular track, I can dig it!

I use tempered hardboards from Home Depot. They come in 8x4 feet boards and cost about 7 bux each.

Our first track when we started drifting. It was built that way, but it was too big to fold and to small for multiple drivers. We tried everything before doing this. after a year, It went to a full concrete track, a lot bigger but with the same layout. Now, we started our indoor track.

This is what I'm looking at making - switch the floor boards for plywood.

That is 5m x 3m kinda size.

Your looking at four 2.5m x 1.5m sections. Or two 2.5m x 3m sections.
