Auto cross Numbers

Who and what do you suggest for car numbers? I know our doors are aluminum, do most people go with magnetic numbers on the rear quarter? Who specializes in printing

I've been using reusable vinyl numbers for the last 6 yrs. Used individual numbers the first season but after that I just get a number panel before the start of each season.

I get mine at Welcome to SPS and Solotime!

Also if you do go with a panel, get the 100 version of your number. ie if your run 34, get 134 on the panel. This makes it easy if you have a co-driver. You'll also have the ability to easily run a different number in the event someone steals yours.

Wow more options than I thought. I like the idea of using reusable vinyl numbers. Thank you!

I use iZoom Graphics, lasts a few events before they start to come off.

I kinda wish i could use magnetic but I haven't found any strong enough to hold on at 130.

I'm using the SPS reusable vinyls but I will definitely be getting a panel before the end of the year.. they are super annoying to take on and off.

I use 8" and 4" SPS magnetic numbers and letters, respectively. They fit perfect on the rear quarter, right behind the doors.

I also use iZoom graphics and his magnetic numbers stay on the rear quarters just fine at 140mph.

LOL wow, thanks, I didn't even think of that. Just assumed it was aluminium too.
