Dont connect your battery to the radiator and you won't have a problem with it shorting out....

Unless you rupture a line, pump or coolig head, water is in a closed system and never touches your electronics.

Its essentially a water cooled heat sink that bolts in between the mounting flange of your car and the motor. Its nothing more complicated than that.
Section 8, no attitude, but I was asking for a review and I perceived you as being a bit stand-off-ish "like , hey dummy don't you know". In any event, "Its essentially a water cooled heat sink that bolts in between the mounting flange of your car and the motor." makes perfect sense. That being said, seeing that no one has given a review, what about impact? How strong is it? Would it be able to withstand a hit or a nice "head on, apply directly to the forehead" crash?

We will all have to wait and see what this system REALLY does.
My point. To me, it appears that they tested it with one car on the track, monitoring temps, which is good. But, they say zip about durability in the event of a hit or crash.

Time to revive this thread. It appears that this cooling system is ready for purchase. It has a small write up in the latest Xtreme R/C mag. At $200 bucks a clip, cooling dont come cheap! Anyone willing to take the plunge?!?!?!??
