Speedway Tech Talk - Derby Car Radiators


Jeremy has raced demolition derby for several years. In his Limited Weld Derby Car, he uses Speedway Motors 31-inch Universal Aluminum Radiator. This radiator is inexpensive and performs at a high level. Jeremy notes that the 28-inch and 31-inch radiators are measured from the outside of the tank to the outside of the tank on the opposite end. If you have a Ford or GM derby car, the 31-inch radiator will fix; however, Jeremy suggests using a 28-inch to allow for more room when the car concaves from impact. If you are looking for an inexpensive, but high performing radiator – this radiator is great for demolition derby cars.
