Local track has not open yet,so we have towed the car 110 miles to neighbooring track.Only have 2 nights on the car,3rd place first night and got a second place this week.Car is doing great other then running real hot at end of feature.Planning to upgrade raditor cap,and put flex fan and spacer.
The track is planning a 4th of july endro 150,I was wandering if anybody eles has run one of these and what other upgrades are needed to prepare for it.We are running a metric car (agaist mostly chevelles and novas)Maybe if I heard of some of yalls experience with endros can help us prepare for the 4th of july fireworks

If you're getting hot now you will never finish an enduro race,don't use a flex fan it won't help,try a four blade fan with alot of pitch,i found one on an old slant six dodge.

The endro race is going to be held @ I37 speedway in Pleasanton Texas.


The car as it is now would never finish an endro race I know,My problem with overheating I believe is the old stock raditor cap that was on raditor when I threw it in.I am planning to get a racing raditor cap.Alot of guys are running the plastic flex fan with spacer so fan is almost touching raditor.We have a shroud but I thinkinmg about extending it longer.

22 psi cap, 3/4" water restrictor (no thermostst!), 1:1 crank pulley & water pump pulley, 4 row radiator & decent water pump. This should get you to the end as long as the engine is not putting out any undue heat. We run 200 lappers without a problem, this was not the case the previous few years. Ask questions, try it and learn.
