    The local AutoZone had one bottle for $16.99. That's twice what water wetter costs and even more than Royal Purple's Purple Ice. I hope it works.

    Keep us posted please.

    Can you run some laps and get the car up to temp, add it and go right back out for a more meaningful comparison?

    This sounds like a good article to compare the engine cooling snake oil products.....

    Yeah, and let us know if facial burns are as painful as they say.....



    Joking aside, I too like the notion of a back to back (independent) comparison. Just do it as safely as possible!

    I hadn't thought of testing it. I was just going to pour it in and go. Maybe I could run with just water, then add the Nano Cool. I have my temperature gauge working accurately now, so I could do it.

    Yeah, Brett, that would be cool. Distilled water, right? You'd have to underfill by just a bit and then go run some laps to see peak temps. Let it cool down a bit and then add the snake oil and take it back out again. You have any track time planned between now and October? Ryan is thinking about getting to Spring Mountain to practice in September - weather permitting. (Some sub 100F days would be great.)

    Nanopro oil additive is hard to find. Is this the part # NDT16NC ?

    I'm a big fan of radiators!! I got one for my all my cooling systems. Water and oil (my car is to small to over heat the trans or diff).

    But, really really... Every one covered most everything I was going to say. Except, If at all possible and "If" you have to open the radiator cap on a hot motor. Keep the motor running. It will be much more likely not to burn you.

    Rotary's like to produce heat! I have not had any problems keeping mine under 210 running full tilt in 107deg weather once I got all the air going through (not around) the radiator. Shift 500 rpms under red line and it comes right down under 200 deg. Ducting and a good duel pass radiator. But even on the forced induction mustangs we run. Ducting, Cooling system capacity and Also Oil cooling are all key to keeping water temps manageable.
    That's not a Typo, I just can't spell no so well.

    Read the label on the Nano Cool carefully. Purple ICE states that it should not be used with distilled water alone. Water Wetter says distilled water alone is OK. I've had a couple of aluminum radiators corrode after using Purple ICE with distilled water. I'm now storing the car with glycol and corrosion inhibitors during the off season.

    My AutoZone has been sold out for two weeks...

    Those of you who run rater and an additive, do you flush your radiators often?
    PS: I am going to drain mine of coolant tomorrow to add water (distilled), what would be the best way to get everything out and flush it?
