You've dug your own grave now you'll have to lie in it.

I didn't start anything at all. That was nothing to do with you at all but you chose to come in on the issue. So this is where it ends.

Tonight's topic...Placing isolalator's between between the engine and mount's. Will it overheat or keep the heat more constant?
Read it in a magazine can't remember the result's...Theories Please..
I've never done it... but the theory behind putting insulation between the engine and the mounts is to remove the chassis as a cooling source, and have the engine head be the primary cooling source.

The problem with using the chassis as a cooling source, is that it draws heat through the crank-case, which is the coolest part of the engine.

Xray vision when you mean isolators, do you ,mean the little blocks on the top of the engine mounts you get in the box with OS motors or is this something else.?

isolator = insulator = cardboard, rubber, anything that doesnt transfer heat.

If oil and unspent fuel is used for cooling the how much cooling does the chassis provide?
I've modded an os cv-x thinking about tring the plates yes or no?

I've never heard of the theory before but would a ceramic block be a good choice. I've heard ceramic is a good insulator. Also I've read and experienced this myself in the NTC3 it seems with a rear exhaust engine that the crank overheats. I know that the chassis's on these car are used a heat sink.

I would say in theory that the isolators shold keep the chassis a bit cooler, this all so depends where the chassis has extra cooling slots. There are many variable to take into consideration. But isolation of the heat from the engine mounts should help the car overall stay cooler ( maybe a few degrees cooler ). It hard to say without doing some clinical testing. Anybody got a temp gun?

My thoughts on isolation.

1. It will raise the CG of the motor a little. Yeah yeah i know but every little bit matters. If you are going to do it cut the engine mounts down the same amount.

2. My chassis is plenty heat soaked after a 10+ minute race/heat. I am not sure that i want the heatsink head to be trying to do all the cooling if you can spread the load.

Legal motor combination for the state titles.

Well everyone will say JPs3 with the new inline pipe. But I'll go with Mario Collari modified Siro.
