So it looks like I didn't fix the problem I had last year with coolant not getting sucked back in to the radiator from the reservoir. Well, I really believe I fixed it, and I think I recreated it when I took my radiator back out. All it was the first time was a cocked hose clamp...believe it or not. I'm still miffed as to why my reservoir can't take the surge volume. I either have too much of a temperature swing creating more expansion/contraction that I should really have or simply too much for that little hose and tank to handle.
So, I definitely need radiator ducting. I'm looking into adding back the mechanical fan and OEM shroud. That will help too, esp with reliability.
I can also get rid of that cheapo temp switch and use the other output on my Greddy MSS unit that controls the other fan.
All in all I'm really happy with the car, especially the brakes. I tested their limits and the car stops REALLY fast now. Once the tires heat up I can really lay into them. I could literally feel my face start to pull away from my head.
And I'm not even running R compounds!
It was good to have you guys see me at the track. I really would've liked to know what my times were. I've been looking for a Patriot course event to do and didn't really consider doing anything at GT Live. Even with all the people there (mostly spectators) I got lots of laps in. On any normal day at VIR there is usually just as much racing and stuff going on, just not a bunch of clueless people walking around asking me if my car is a Skyline.
