    Cooliong system

    What is everyones choice for a track only cars cooling system. Tap water, Deionized water, disstilled water. Or is there some other top secret fluid that is made for todays race car that is better?.

    We are NOT ALLOWED to use ANY amount of Anti Freeze at our pavement ovals. I don't know about you dirt trackers though.
    Water Wetter and H2O and then drain the COMPLETE system in the fall.

    NO ANTIFREESE, in NHRA or IHRA, in fact it will get you tossed out and no return of your entry fee if it's detected in tech, or if you spill any on the track.

    50/50 antifreeze for now, will drain most of that out sometime this spring when it finallys warms up and theres no threat of freezing, then I'll switch over to water wetter/tap water & whatever antifreeze is left in the block.

    Just tap water.....drain completely in the winter and run RV antifreeze through it just in case. Flush & refill with tap water in the spring.

    Filtered water from a car wash. It's the purified water they use in the spot free rinse.

    If you ever run over your own water/antifreeze, you'll wish like hell you got ALL that slippery green stuff out
