anyone ever use Redline's "water wetter" product? If so does it work? Also do you run a restrictor or thermostat?

We use it, last fri. night we had to make up the A feature from the last week cause of rain. It was really hot here fri. night, ran about 240 in the 1st A, no water wetter. Put it in after the motor cooled down, ran the heat & then the last A & never got over about 215. Run a restrictor & 4 core radiator in a factory stock, 355 cu. in., 3/8's dirt in OKC.

We run it in our car it's the only thing that keeps us from overheating. Before we ran it we overheated just about every night. Now we run about 215-220.

We run it also, about 210 after the feature. A buddy of mine switched from "water wetter" to "purple ice" and said his cooled down even more.

Water Wetter WORKS!!!! I will not run without it anymore - Lubricates the water pump and keeps temps down to tolerable levels! Also keep in mind that the cooling system will only work as well as you design it! Wash that radiator out every week really good and not enough can be said about having a well fit fan shroud!!!

You aint kidding!!! I used it this weekend. I put a 3/4 inch restrictor in and added water wetter to the system. I usually pull off the track around 220 she ran all night Saturday and stayed below 200! Mostly around 190.

Fabric softener works to break down the surface tension of the water. This allows the water to more easily penetrate the fibers in your clothing. That is what makes your clothes feel softer. Less surface tension also allows better heat transfer which will aid in keeping an engine cool. I always added about 2 cups.
