Track day number

Any suggestions on where to buy reusable numbers to place on my car during track day? I am getting tired of the blue tape.

Various websites sell magnetic numbers, or you can just get the 4" number stickers/decals at Home Depot for a buck a piece--I buy 4 or 5 sets at a time. Stick nicely to the rear side windows.

Call or email Tom from Twisted Priorities - he does letters for lots of our guys here in NASA-AZ -- and I'm sure he can ship. In a pinch you can also go to your local fast-signs and have some made up for about $10 in a nice font/outlines/etc that look nicer than the home depot special.

Tom made these HPDE letters for me for just a few dollars:

I have used reusable numbers from SPS/Solotime for two years. Very good quality, no issues and fast shipping.

I had to order an extra number from them a week ago - because my usual number was already taken at an event next weekend. I had it in hand in 4 days after ordering.

Wow that's quick...good to know.

I've used 414 for a while so I ordered two 4's and a 1. But I guess I can also do 144 or 441 or 14 or 41 or 44

The ones I use from Solo are not magnetic. They hold very well - never an issue...even an edge.

I guess what I meant was static. They roll on but surface under has to be pristine clean.

I've never had an issue getting mine to stick securely to glass.

I got these from autocrossnumbers.com, helpful guys and you pick whatever design, numbers, height and so on that you want. I'm happy with them, magnetic so put them on and take them off whenever.

I have magnetic numbers but I use a small strip of double sided tape on the leading edge. No issues after 6 track days with hitting speeds of 100+mph. I have seen others who didn't use DS tape and their numbers came off at the track. I paid $35 each for it and bought it from the local sign shop.
