Anti-freeze at the track is a quick way to get thrown out or possibly banned from a track.

It's a known rule that you have to have only water... I know a few places that won't even allowe water wetter in the cooling system anymore

No way! That stuff is harder to clean up than engine oil, and about three times as slick!
smells good when they are trying to burn it off..:rolleyes::partyman:

one question,

What about all the street cars? Are they allowed to have anti Freeze? I know most of them drive the car to the track and drive home...and some pretty fast cars too.

Thats just the shitty draw back to it... All the street cars can't be forced to drain and fill while at the track....so....whatever.. But a race car that has big ass 19ft wide slicks, 40ft wheelie bars, arrived in a stacker (you get the idea) should not, can not supposed to have antifrost, they should be straight water.

where is the line drawn?

I know street cars faster than a bunch of race cars.
I guess it depends on where you live and if it gets cold enough to crack your shit up when daily driving it and it drops below freezing at night. The 6-9 second "street cars" probably aren't drivin when weather is that cold and kept inside. So they could probably run water without issue and should be.

That's a 2 year ban from all PINKS events for putting antifreeze on my track. Do you have anything to say for yourself?
