Has anyone used a Speedway Tru-Kool radiator. Are they any good. I had some new front end work done on my car tonight (head on with a tank).
I always seem to learn leasons the hard way. Only 2 cars showed up for my class tonight so we dropped down and ran with the super stock and I knew my car was a little loose and I pushed it threw traffic to hard and spun out and a guy with a snow plow tried to turn me around. ***** to just got the car back together and it was bad fast. now its just bad tore up. Sorry,more info then you needed. Any info on a cheeper radiator would be appreciated.

The true Kool radiator I bought was a 1 core radiator I sent it back. I bought an afco instead. Not sure if they make a true kool in a 2 core I asked the guy at speedway about it and he said it was(he thought)so when I got it (on friday) it was not and I run 60 over 350 with lots and lots of compression so I need all the cooling I can get. needles to say I had to go out and buy one at the track store"ouch!!!!!!"that weekend. ASk before you buy it and make them check!

7500, the cataloge says 2 rows of 1" aluminuim tubes. Not to cause problems or start a fight but are you sure. It looks as good as the summit I had and it worked fine untill I tried to bend it around somebodys bumper LOL.
