Q & A

What's in the Box

Place directly in front of radiator and let it take the beating instead of your expensive aluminum radiator. Made of rigid Nomex material, which is lightweight but very strong. This is the same stuff the Outlaws use! Some guys have raced a whole season with one honey comb protector. Usage will vary depending on track conditions.

  • Honeycomb wall thickness is .001" to .002"
  • Can be trimmed to fit
  • Works great for street vehicles as well

Not available in BLACK! '31 Ford 5 window is very sad! Hot rodders would love this for their grille protectors. You should make it in BLACK so it doesn't need to be painted and put it in their street rod section and it would sell like hot cakes!

Yes this is fairly flexible and should be able to be bowed enough to form to your radiator core.

Sorry I do not have exact airflow specifications on this honeycomb protector. I run this on my own personal Modified with a 26" radiator and a 600 hp engine running racing gas and have no cooling issues. I see no difference in engine temperature with or without the honeycomb so obviously I don't hit the track with out one!

I am installing in a 65 cobra and made an aluminum shell for it and shot it with black satin enamel. Thin coats but it is hard to fill honeycomb 100%.So far so good.

The honeycomb radiator protector can be painted but doing so will partially plug and change the amount of air flow allowed through honeycomb.

Outerwears 11-2332-12 Speed Screen Radiator Protector, IMCA Modified
(Part #5642332)
                        It's a fact of racing that you are going to crash once in a while and use up a radiator. But this radiator protector protects your radiator from damage by rocks and mud. This radiator screen also prevents mud from building up on the radiator causing overheating during a race. These Speed Screens will do the job and are easy to install and clean. Vinyl frame with loops for attaching.
                    
Red Line 80204 Water Wetter Coolant Additive
(Part #91015709)
                        

Red Line Water Wetter Super Coolant additive is a unique wetting agent which reduces coolant temperatures by as much as 20° F. This is a liquid coolant treatment product which is designed to be added to solutions of antifreeze and water to help improve the heat transfer properties of glycol-based antifreeze. This liquid product can be used to provide rust and corrosion protection in plain water for racing engines, which provides much better heat transfer properties than glycol-based antifreeze. Improves the ability of coolant to wet heat transfer surfaces by 50%.

  • Reduces or eliminates bubbles that form on hot metal surfaces to reduce coolant temperatures by up to 20°
  • Superior heat transfer properties compared to glycol-based antifreeze
  • Compatible with new or used antifreeze (including DEX-COOL and long-life versions) to improve the heat transfer of ethylene and propylene glycol systems
  • Improves heat transfer and reduces cylinder head temperature
  • Designed for use with all modern aluminum, cast iron, copper, brass and bronze cooling systems
  • Cleans and lubricates water pump seals
  • Reduces cavitation and complexes with hard water to reduce scaling
  • Does not lower cooling system below the thermostatically-controlled temperature
  • 12 fl. oz. bottle treats 12-20 quarts
