tempted to toss on a couple pullers and route my windshield washer reservoir and pump to a spray nozzle in the IC duct.
I'll be spinning the blower a bit faster than yours is being spun generating a good bit more heat.we'll see.AJ,
You won't need it for your intended use of the car...with a proper I/C, you'll do fine on track.
I turned my personal best lap time at Big Willow in 105 degree temp in June....beat my previous personal best time by 2 seconds which was set in 60 degree temps back in February. I know...not a very compelling argument.
are they wired to be on all the time or only at certain temperatures?Yes pushers. Another forum member wildwhl did these same fans with 2 push and 2 pull mounted on either side of the IC. I bet that works well.
I bought mine from Wizard Automotive, Spal Dealer in FL. [email protected] Contact's name there is Roz. Very very helpful, proffesional service. Be sure to order the mounting pins and the correct relay.
Keep dreaming that one. Both on expected speeds at Fontana and temps . I hit 138mph at Fontana and saw charge temps post IC of 190 on a nice cool 75 degree day. I know you'll be better with a larger pulley but still... I'd love to see my temps in the 120-130 top rangeAt larger tracks like Thunderhill 3.19 mi long straight where one hits 130-135 or so or like Fontana 150-160 or so I don't think heat soak could ever become an issue (at least with the RLS anyway).
Probably end up tuning for each track I go to next year.
my indicated speed was over 150 but my data logger told me otherwise. I'm pretty sure with a better run onto te oval and staying in it deeper I could hit 145 but then we are running out of gearing, developing load of intake heat, and just running out of steam on the top end. I'm sure once I get the air temp charge down significantly it will be a lot better.It was a little more than just a freeway pull 1 hour of stop and go LA freeway followed by a long long long pull up the grape vine at WOT -- I'm sure you've gone up the grape vine (it's not a short quick hill). But if you take a look at percent of track time actually on throttle it's not as massively different. But I agree you're not creating tranny heat, brake heat, etc. etc. -- tracks are different and my point was each track will be different.
If I had hit 150 at Fontana in a Mustang Cobra with worse aero and worse HP/Weight then I'd expect to at least do the same in my Lotus (I hope).
I agree completely.Not sure I buy your argument...
the flow from the roof scoop will also be under pressure from airflow being forced in at speed.
