Has anyone ever seen or used this product? i'm curious about it.
Does it use water or air??? the little pump and radiator looks pretty cool.

well my guess is if it has a micro pump and a radiator then most likely it uses water

Being the hard-headed (and biased) Marine that I am, when I didnt see english, I saw an opportunity to flame and jumped on it. Thanks Marcos. Anyone have an opinion on the product???

P.S.-it's "voila"

Semper Fi...carry on!

I'm a little confused. Water and eletricity don't mix. They claim its a liquid that doesnt conduct electricity, so what is it? That being said, does it work for brushless? And, how does it work in the first place?

Thats not exactly true.

Water (H2o) doesn't conduct electricity. Its all the other things usually in the water that conduct electricity, namely electrolytes.

I haven't looked at the product, but if you have distilled water that you haven't yet contaminated with anything, it won't conduct electricity.

Um, mr scientist, not for nothing, but how many people are going to use distilled water??? Look, water and electronics dont mix, with or without the electrolytes. Lets not make this more difficult than need be. I just want to know if anyone has used the product and has a review. Capice? Za-right!

The product has not been released, the only reviews you will find are from the developer which will not be entirely unbiased

We will all have to wait and see what this system REALLY does.

I don't understand you problem (or the attitude)?

You were wondering what coolant they would use, so I told you. If you are worried about shorting out your electronics, you will use it. They will probably recommend it in the directions (they will probaby tell you to use it if they are touting a non-conductive coolant, particularly since its just about the cheapest liquid you can buy Its even available at the grocery store). 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.
