    If the cooling system is marginal in October, then it's insufficient in the summer. But if it's marginal in the summer, you'll be fine in October.

    It will be interesting to see how the DWE concept plays out.

        I drove it to Vegas with the temps in the mid-90's, and with the pump running 100% of the time it was maintaining right around 184F coolant temp. Climbing hills it climbed, going down hills it went down. When I got to cooler temps a few dozen miles north of Vegas it started dropping. Its just a dinky 17 gpm pump, so I don't think it can move the water fast enough in some conditions. The 3-core brass radiator is plenty good. This was going 75mph, and I'm fairly sure if I simply slowed down to 55-60mph it would cool down since the pump speed would be unchanged and the engine load/rpm would be lower. I want the 55-gpm pump mounted on a 2-row aluminum radiator
        Escaped on a technicality.

          It won't be at ZMax unless the dates of DragWeek or the NHRA event at ZMax changes. NHRA holds rights to the track a week before their event so they can prep it and paint it.
          All 12 Drag Weeks, same junk

            Just wishful thinking on my part because I'm so far away from everything being in FL.

              I like that one, that's three new tracks for me, and I have no problem running Indy for a third time.

                      4 wide would be fun in the DW format where we're not racing each other.

                        With some guys cutting 9+ second reaction times, it would be hell for the camera crews to pick which of the 4 cars to follow down the track though.
