Heat kills performance and damages equipment – your car likes it cool! The goal is, to keep the systems running cooler hence giving them a longer life.
Just a few major cues: engine, powertrain in general, brakes and liquids as oil, cooling fluid, fuel. Under high stress, all those tend to overheat – but no one likes decline in efficiency and damaged equipment. This is primarily behalf of track use, but also for daily rides.
Thus briefly, some preventing measures must be mentioned. For the liquids, filling capacity and bigger or additional radiators; especially for the brakes, high-quality adequately dimensioned material. Above all, enough cool air! To avoid critical circumstances, it is very helpful to have the car properly prepared and well equipped.
In extreme cases, a vehicle can go up in flames – be it during the drive or after stopping. The Castiron would not wish anyone to experience such a situation! Whenever possible, try to give your car from time to time a rest. A cool down lap on the track is a must – similar during covering the daily drive’s very last route.
Today’s video: instead of a burning car, something different, with a twinkle in the eye. Better the heart on fire than a burning car!
See you next Friday. - God bless you, all the best! The Castiron
