Other than glueing the carpet down all over the entire surface first, it might be hard. It would depend on the type of tires allowed I would think also.

Thanks

Foam tires are the only ones allowed.

Nice ramps! I always wanted to make one, but never really got into it. I even checked to see if wal-mart had that plastic ramp....but the Adonai is so wide it wont really work.

we just use flat carpet for road cars and road rails for road cars and use moveable plywood jumps, very easy to change the track layout, and then just lay some kinda pad down where the trucks land. we use extra carpet and lay it down where they land, also you can use spiked tires or any kind of tire it will not tear the carpet we run pins and it will not hurt the carpet.
