I received my Upgrade Pit Mat today from TeamFastEddy and unrolled it from it's tube. Initial impressions: This thing is huge. It easily swallows up my truggy and leaves ample room for parts and tools. The rubber is soft yet firm enough to provide a nice surface to wrench on. I did a 1 ft bounce test with a few nuts and screws and they did not hit the floor. They hit the mat and rolled, instead of bouncing off into oblivion. I didn't try it's chemical and gas resistance but the instructions say it cleans up with soapy water and a rinse if a spill occurs.

IMO the mat really adds a nice touch to my workbench and would be a nice addition to anyone's workspace.

Thanks for the sweet deal Ed. :cheers:

Dang that sucker is PIMP! Do you think there are any improvements that can be made to it or is it set the way it is?

Long term usage will reveal if there are any improvements that can be made. I first thought the size was going to be too small from seeing it online but it fits well on my benchtop.

Mine came today as well.

It is exactly what I was looking for when I bought the Vantage mat I have been using. The Upgrade mat is plenty big enough as Dom mentions and the recessed areas for tools and such are a welcome touch. It rolls up nice an tight to about a 3.5" diameter so it's easily transportable.

I give it the robmob 3 thumbs-up salute.

ugh I wont find out if mine came in today until tuesday. Anyways, not to pat myself on the back too much but I'm pretty sure I'm the one that put Eddy onto these mats so I'm glad you guys like them.

Once I get my new bench setup that mat will deff make the area nice and pimp. Oh I can't wait!!! 2 more weeks!

Ah, if only the money fairy would visit, gosh darnit! :depress:

That mat looks awesome guys! Hopefully Team FastEddy will stock them again later when my finances are in a bit better shape, but until then I'll make do with my old towels and drool at all of yours! :drool:

Sold out today.
Good thing I ordered another case of them. It was one of the last of the batch from upgrade till their shipment comes in.

I should have them on Monday.
Place your orders now. When their gone, there gone. Don't know when they will be back in stock.

Hey guys. Long time - no post.

I just cleaned up my Upgrade mat with some 409 to start taking down an E-Maxx that was given to me.

Is that company still around? It would be cool to get one to clean guns on too.

@TacRacing I haven't seem them around in a long while, but you can still find their pit mats from time to time on eBay.

A popular alternative are the CowRC pit mats.
