 I should just get a calibration weight to use at events, I think they are pretty cheap.

Would truck bed liner be better than paint for the arena floor? For the steel floor, it's tougher than paint, and if/when we do switch to stainless, bare non-hot-rolled metal is super slippery, so some extra traction might be nice. It also looks nice and matte on camera.

I've got a 200g calibration weight I can bring in september. I figure I'd make my bots weigh in correctly to it so I shouldn't need to worry about scale discrepancies. They are pretty cheap though, I think I got mine on amazon for around $5. I'm not hardcore enough though to only handle it with tweezers or gloves though :P

Never used truck liner but isn't it usually applied pretty thick, and then could craters form if it gets ripped up at all? Also need to make sure paint can stick to it as well.
