Man, I'm afraid to mess around with this, even though it does sound kind of simple and straightforward. Maybe one day. Awesome looking car btw, Brian.

Washed and waxed....before wife took it on road trip yesterday. She called me an hour into the trip to say several 'thumbs up' from other drivers and she LOVES her car.

Got a new SC coolant bottle shipped to me that has more robust barbs on it. When I'm changing it out is there any reason to add a temp probe in the coolant line. It hit 103 here in Central Texas today and I just wonder if its worth tracking the temp of the circulating coolant?

It would be interesting data, but we have not done it. We watch engine coolant, oil temp, IAT.

Brian wrote:Road TRIP....SUPERCHARGED!

While I was racing our other supercharged ND around AutoClub Speedway in Fontana, my wife was packing the Supercharged RF to the limit. After my morning on the track I rushed home and jumped into the RF and hit the road eastbound on Highway 8 through the high deserts east of San Diego. Our RF is STOCK cooling system, stock radiator, how would it handle being loaded to the limit and driving with my heavy foot through temps approaching 100 F along the Mexican border and up steep 6 percent grades?

The RF was our trusty and very speedy GT for the entire journey, swiftly covering over 300 miles round trip up. Going UP and DOWN the steep 6 percent grade east on the way toward El Centro was the most fun with the Supercharged RF, the tarmac is smooth and curving through the narrow parts of the canyon grade and the supercharger pushed us up the grade with effortless speed. A Mercedes AMG stayed with us for a while on the journey back up the grade on the way home before finally giving up the chase as I pushed the pace faster and faster.... love this setup! We got over 40mpg on the way to our accommodations with friends in Imperial Lakes with wind at our backs pushing us, 34mpg on the way home with me pushing close to triple digit speeds up the grade to try and get the coolant temp to show some distress with the hot conditions and with my very aggressive driving. Ambient temps 95F as we started to climb the grade, slowly falling to 79 F near the summit, coolant temps were impressively steady.

Thus, we remain confident that STREET drivers can use the new Edelbrock Supercharger kit with stock cooling systems. Our Race customers, track or autocross, are a different matter....see our ND thread with our Supercharged Racing ND.



Another Imperial Lakes weekend in our Supercharged RF....love it. Serious HEAT test today, 114 F ambient temps for the climb back over the pass and car didn't miss a beat in the fast lane all the way back!

Used new wheel and tire combo for this trip, 16x8 and 225/50 that we have been enjoying on the Fiat 124.

So what is the verdict between the 16 vs 17" wheel setup?

I am interested to know if it is better to go to a 16" rim in terms of ride comfort, pothole mitigation (against rim damage) and general performance value over the 17" wheel. I am not tracking or autocrossing the car, but do want to use in in mountain roads as well as city driving.

Thanks,

Andrew

I would not bother if you have stock suspension, I got this setup for the project Fiat 124 that has stiff racing coilovers for track and autocross weekends with SCCA. That car races 17x9 on the weekends, figured 16x8 would soften the daily ride and it does that really well.

Here they are on the Fiat.

My wife's RF suspension is soft enough (our Progress RF Springs on Koni Shocks) that we don't need the 16s for my wife to be happy with the ride quality, but I liked the Continental tire enough on the RF that I ordered same tire today in 225/45/17 for the Tungsten 17x8 6UL that we usually have the RF. That 17x8 Tungsten 6UL has usually proved the crowd favorite in customer feedback on this project (pic below). That 225/45/17 tire ordered today is a change from the Toyo 235/40 R1R that we have usually had on the car the last two years, it will ride a little softer and that might let me get the wife to accept RoadsterSport springs on the project so we can develop RF version of these popular higher rate springs (rates 300/200).

Continental ExtremeContact Sport

This car doesn't race, it does do canyons and road trips so we needed best ride quality with good grip, consistent with the mission of this project (have fun, and don't piss off the wife :wink: ).

Always designing that 'next' exhaust item. Prototype with some interesting features, testing with supercharger.

Interesting. How will this one compare to the SS and SQ twin tip options?
