    Looking to buy a 42ft Bestrack preferably a 3-4 lane with timer.


    I'm located in Southeast VA. Will be making a trip from Goldsboro NC to Columbus OH in June and could possibly pick up along the route.

    I've been looking for a used Best Track as well, it appears they are hard to come by. Also, if you find one not local to you the shipping expense really adds up.

    I may just suck it up and by a new single lane one.

    Yes, I was looking for a used track about a year ago. When I realized I wasn't going to find one I contacted Bestrack and just bought one

    How many lanes did you get? What length? Trying to figure out the way to go.

    Do you use all three lanes for testing? Would you recommend going multiple lanes for a test track?

    Initially I ran all three lanes but after awhile only used one lane. I've polished it three times now. The first time I polished all three lanes but after that I've only polished the one lane because I just didn't use the other lanes.

    This is good to know. Did you sand and then polished it? Would it be easier to sand/polish before the initial assembly?

    I also have the 42’ 3 lane best track. I use all 3 lanes for testing but I’m limited to good weather to run. Fit all the joints together first and marked them as I went. Used a laser level to keep the lanes lined up and tons of wet sanding then polishing.

    I think you need to polish your joints so assemble it first
