    I would say yes to both. I wonder if this cooling package will be available separately.

    To assume only one white C BS at Weistec's would be a wrong assumption.

    that dual fan setup at the rear is pretty slick. What is that cooling ? Is there a rad above it for the trans ?

    And Earl I didn't assume anything. As you can see my first post was a question, not an assumption.

    I will let Steve explain the entire system but this thing can run all out on a track for an hour in Las Vegas in July I have been told. The guys at Weistec wanted to quiet the people that say these systems are not good for road racing applications. I think you are one of them Like lol Click here to enlarge

    I am going to do my best to put it through the paces at Road America later this month. Road America is far more abusive than Willow on equipment, although April temps in Wisconsin are on the cool side.

    Road America is pretty much my home track, under three hours away from me. Back when I was racing bikes I went 7 for 7 there one weekend, won every race I entered. For some reason I just really connect with that track. I also warped 3 rotors and went through a set of pads one afternoon there in my CLK in about 40 laps, turn 5 and Canada corner are hard on brakes. Now the question is going to be will I still have the balls to hang it wide open in the kink, I assume I will be carrying about 20mph more through that section with the blown C BS than I was in the NA CLK

    You know how Steve and Mike operate, they do not relese anything until it it thoroughly tested and proven. Not only that they always have a project or two in R & D so there is now way to keep up with all their products. If you want to ship them your car for a few months I am sure they would love to use it as a test mule as they have mine and Earls for the past 2 years. In the past two years either earls CLK or my CLK has been in their hands. It is actually a pretty ideal situation, a few things get tested out and proven on Earls car while a few things get tested and proven on mine, toss the stuff that does not work in the trash and then keep the stuff that works and duplicate it for the other car. His car was out there most of last summer while I took mine home to Chicago to enjoy. Now Earl's enjoying his car at home in Florida while mine has been back back at Weistec for the past 5 months. The stuff being developed on my car right now will be on Earls car before too long. Pretty much a prefect scenerio and I think it has helped speed along the development of this platform.

    So who is going to test the big valve heads I am developing? Click here to enlarge

    PS I didn't mean the type lipped part in a bad way. I like the suspense.

    All good George. This is a three partnership which I think all parties would agree, has worked out quite well! You like others are the beneficiaries so really it is a win for all.

    Cooling mods work great, it has been put through its paces on drag strip, 1mile airstrip, road course and daily driven on the road in Chicago summer heat and humidity. Not sure what Weistecs plans are to offer these coling mods for sale , you would have to contact them to find out if this is something you can purchase.
