Track Number Suggestions?

I would like to get a set of vinyl or magnetic track numbers for my SCCA time trial in May. What do you folks recommend? (I searched, but the results were bad)

large roll of magnet sheet and some stencils from amazon. just under $40 all in with enough material to make lots of sets.
They have held on over regular 120MPH straights.

↑↑↑ I'd still run a strip of painter's tape along the leading vertical edge(s).

Alternatively, you could run just the cut-out numbers (and if you're more artistic than I am, use the tape for visual effect).

+1 for trackdecals.com. I have a set of magnetic numbers from them and have never had an issue at >140mph.

Any paint swirling or scratches from the magnetic numbers?

He uses a stronger than average magnetic backing for track decals.


You can also customize to your hearts content.

Wipe the area down with detail spray before you put on.

I haven't had issues. I do the same as Matthew - wipe down area with detail spray and also the backside of the magnet before application.

It will scratch. Happened to me so I switched to vinyl and left them on.

Bummer. I bought the magnetic ones from Track Decals after the positive reviews. I'll clean them as suggest and see how it goes. My car is far from a car show queen.

I have had great luck with https://www.firestormgraphix.com/
Magnetics should not scratch if you take proper care. I make sure the surface is clean first. I carry wax and a micro fiber just for that purpose. I also make sure that I wipe off the magnetic side before I put it on so there is not grit between surfaces. Finally, I never drag the magnetic side off the car. I roll it on and peel it off. Separately, I never had one come off, but you can tape the leading edge if you are concerned.
