Last issue, we took a detailed look at the different ways to actually build an aluminum radiator. Something else you should ponder is if a rad company is actually a manufacturer or just an assembler.
Nick couldn’t help but notice the non-stop parade of Toyota Prius’ streaming by in the HOV lanes. All of them were boring. The next thing you know, Nick had a huge, but slightly twisted inspiration, and it went like this: “Wouldn’t it be cool to jam a Hellcat motor into one of these things?”
We’re not quite done with false impressions when it comes to radiators: Some companies offer radiators configured as a double-pass or triple-pass design, and while that sounds impressive, the name can be a little misleading.
In the big picture, it’s pretty clear that aluminum makes for a better radiator, but there’s even more to the technology.
When the dog days of summer roll around, you’ll be quick to think of the radiator in the nose of your car.
In our last issue, we left you with a set of basically assembled Smith Racecraft Assassin traction bars. This time around we’ll examine bar tuning.
Wayne Scraba brings us part 2 of a trilogy on the Smith Racecraft Assassin traction bar, likely the most sophisticated bolt on traction bar available today.
There have been plenty of different traction bar arrangements built and manufactured over the years. Some were good. Some were not so good.
We all know we can’t control the weather. Mother Nature does that. However, you can offset the effects of weather with a series of simple changes, tuning and otherwise.
Do the effects of Mother Nature really matter when it comes to tuning your carb-equipped car?
