why you lots need big radiator? most of time, everybody driving very slow under load at 4,000rom most of time.
it take long time to warm up the car to temp at most time in good condition motor.
In my PP race day, small rad and rev very high on load and it's steady 89-85 degree most of time..... that was with ford turbo diesel radiator( crossflow type).. big is not always the best...

Your are so Right!
Some People think red stripes and big radiator makes the seven faster. :lol:
You get better cooling with brass radiator block then Aluminium cooler same size.
Oil cooling, filter and change is the more important thing.

I'm not saying I need one. But peoples standard radiators may be broken/clogged/leaking. Or they might just want to replace it with a brand new part. Maybe they just want their engine bay to be clean and shiney! :D

I'd like one in the future. But its not a priority so can wait until whenever. th:

Having previously tried and tested a few different radiator makes.

I had the KOYO in my FC and never had a issue with my cooling.

In my Pulsar GTiR i used some cheap chinese ones. The quality was sure lacking compared to the KOYO but will work MUCH better than a knackered radiator.

Red Stripe too wide is no good. Only good for trains
Red Stripe too narrow is no good. Only good for bicycles

Red Stripe exactly 15mm wide on RX7 is perfect and has the desired result of more power and speed. h[b[

As Elford has its own section, perhaps a "Red Stripe" section for us that have them, as they are also performance enhancing mod -haha- what do you think Dave :?:
