Does anyone have Racedeck in their garage?

I was wondering if anyone on here has Racedeck flooring in their garage, im on the fence on it but walls and ceiling are all retextured and im ready for a floor! I like the epoxy but see too many that are peeling after a year and i dont want that at all.. thats what i have now ugly ugly and not camaro worthy. Pics of Racedeck thats a few years old would be helpful too

I recently installed VCT (vinyl composition tile). Looks awesome and relatively cheap. Was going to go the epoxy floor route but didn't want to diamond grind the floor. PM me if you have any specific questions. I have pics to share as well...

I looked into all the options before I did my garage floor and I went with epoxy. If I had to do it again today, I would definitely do epoxy. If they grind the floor up correctly, it will last a while. Mine has been five years and it has not peeled yet. I've had the vinyl tiles but the problem was they would crack and absorb water. Plus the vinyl, in the Texas heat, would turn brown where the tires sat. I wash my car with half the car in the garage, so with the epoxy, when I'm done, I just squeege the water right out. Cleaning it is a breeze as well. I liked the racedeck, but it was expenisve, and I didn't like the noise it made when you walk across it. Just my 2 cents....

Done the epoxy thing and after a couple of winters the salt ruined it. Went with racedeck and wouldn't do it any other way. It looks great and is very durable. I damaged a tile and they sent me a bunch of spares no charge. Great service.

I've had Racedeck for 2 years now and live it! Thought about epoxy but the prep and dry time is just not practical with a garage full of stuff. The Racedeck doesn't make much noise after settling in. I would recommend this highly!
