Track Painting

Hi all,
I have a few questions about grip levels, and/or painting plastic track, and/or magnets
First off Painting plastic track. is it just for asthetics or does it improve grip for non mag cars? what type of paint is the prefered choice? Following on from this, What are the grip levels like on a routed wooden track with copper tape? is it similar to painted plastic with non mag? I normally run magnets but have tried without and found the grip levels 'interesting' . I'm no stanger to sliding cars but normally work on much bigger 1/10 scale RC buggys, where a 2WD can be a challenge on a slippy sports hall floor. I'm currently developing the layout for my permenant track and I am contemplating taking all the mangets out. But somehow I like the sheer silly speed obtainable with mag scalex boxter.
Opinions Please

i have recently gone the routed route and coppertape so all mags are now removed. I just used off the shelf grey emulsion and swapped the rear tyres for urethane one's.

The grip level is now more realistic than it ever was with plastic track and magnets and is a joy to race on.
