Second , im a moderator here and I wont tolerate dissrespect and to be honest anyone who insists on the free speech for a reason of why to be a blatant immature child in a forum / xbox live / bars or anywhere else privately owned wont be tolerated. I have recorded the incident and if you continue this behavior I will remove you from this forum.

Calm down and get back to learning about this great hobby, which a lot of people consider a hobby of a way to enjoy themselves and relax, which is best started by simply reading , once you feel you have respect for another individual you can then post again.

Youve been warned!

Roelof, if you add a pressure regulator/blow-by to the mid point you'd have a 2-n-1 device(product)

I was kind of thinking the same thing. Maybe just drill and tap it for a needle valve.

That is just a simple nipple placed at the side of an empty fuelfilter.
The fuelhose is just for flowing away dirty oil which are with the exhaust gasses. The pressure in the tank is lowered, it makes the engine less pressure sensitive, will react better on the throttle and gives 15 secs more runtime.

Default Coolers

Thanks for the inspiration Roelof. I'm going to try fabricating a copper cooler since copper conducts heat better than aluminum. Anything for that extra 30 sec! I'm also going to try cooling my fuel before each heat and pit with chilled fuel as well. Watch out for the guy with the insulated fuel bottle!

This might sound strange, but looking around the house for something to work with, I found a piece of aluminum that has "fins" on it lengthwise and it was hollowed out already....it was from when I put verticle blinds up in the house and had to shorten it. You can buy an 8foot blind for $22 for the top rail an dull the "aluminum dowel" from it and have enough to make about 40 of these coolers.


As for the chiled fuel...I used to run this in my nitro oval car, because we were hardly ever off the throttle...be careful as to not keep the fuel too cold, as this can cause signifigant engine issues. Just keeping it 20 or 30 deg cooler is all that is needed. When you get cooler than that, after refueling, I've seen guys that have fractured pistons and had bearing failures.

Also something else to try:



Just use a small party baloon. This will act more as the Team Orion Constant Pressure Device. On full throttle the balloon will blow up a tiny bit and letting go the throttle the baloon will empty itself pushing some pressure in the tank. As far I noticed is that it will give a faster picking up engine going out of the corner.

Oh well, it is just to give it a try without spending lots of money to expensive devices.

Hi all,

I do like the creativity which is coming up.

Well, I have not tried any cooling regarding, thus I am still critical on the effects it might have or not...

I have found some RAM (DDR) coolers which might be very efficient and easy to be modified to fit our needs. They utilize a copper pipe (available in 5 and 6mm dia) and an aluminium cooler. Thus it should be easy to cut and fit some preasure nipples. Saw it for 20-25$.

Will give it a try once got some spare time.

Cheers

Ah, heatpipes. I have also some interesting ideas with them. As example a small and lightweight cooling head for the motor. I am still hoping to find a broken computersystem at my work with a full size coolinghead with heatpipes.

But I do have acces to some broken laptops from which I can use the processor coolers....

And a 5 volt fan is also simple mounted on.

Yeap, good to hear about some fresh thoughts so

Reminds me, that some guys back in the 80's tried to oil cool their engines. Basically, they used a marine cooling head and a cooler like the exhaust gas cooler. Not sure how they ensured a flow so... Wasn't it Sabatini....

Anyway, I have found the Nexus HRX 5500 RAM Cooler (pic posted prior; 3 colors: black/blue/silver) selling for 8USD online and you guys should be able to make 2 units out of one (140mm length). Plus some preasure nipple and time... Should be a reasonable saving compared to the one heading this Thread...

Cheers
