sAAAAAAAAAweet!

I hate to be a stick in the preverbial mud but is a race radiator going to cool your engine as well as one that is designed for lower speeds? I mean, you'd be going tons faster while in a race, thus cooling your car at much faster rates. The only reason I bring this up is that a friend of mine put racing break pads on his car and them shits didn't stop! Not enough friction!

If thats not the case then, WOO HOO!

A racing radiator will work better at any speed because they're usually aluminum and have bigger fins or whatevcer they're called to help dicipate heat. I've been meaning to get one with a dual lightweight fan setup. Good deal though. I wish i could find one that cheap.

Thomas my stepdad was a first master seargent in the Air force. He used to go to air shows with the stealth bombers to show them off. He's got at least 100 model air planes in his basement and in glass cases. All look like they're about o fly away. Then after he retired he worked for a company in the Netherlands building fighter jets.
