I have set up the RC4 on a smooth wooden surface in our office. We are testing with Dirt 4. I noticed that the rotation plate is moving about an inch per race when on a high setting.

Can you recommend a way of helping prevent sliding? We do not want to damage the floor.

Hello Nate, I had the same problem, fixed like in the photo, not ideal but it was the only thing I found to stop it, tried rubber matting, adhesive etc... but they were no good.

soory photo won’t upload from my iPad, I will post a photo early next week, what you will see is I have bolted the base plate from three position to the floor,

Hi Nate, 

As JMB describes, however i have never had troubles with double sided tape. It depends on how violent you want it, we have something called carpet tape (not sure the name in English) i have a hard time peeling it off after expos.

Had similar issue.

Used a Car boot anti-slip mat.

Very thin and flexible rubberised mesh sheet, costs about 5Eur

Hasn't moved in over 18months

Thanks for the tips! The car mat in particular sounds good for our purposes.
