No leaks and it looks like the cooling system is properly bled. I don't know what the big fuss is about bleeding it, I had absolutely zero problems. (Bringing extra coolant to the track just in case )Hoping the trans temps are better, I don't really have a plan B on hand yet.

It was from a member here but I'm not sure he's active anymore. If you search aerosync it will show up.

Bested my Road America time by a second and a half while fighting an overheating trans the entire time. If I shifted around 6k I could make it through the whole session so it wasn't a complete waste of a trip. Looking into an electric fan now.

Sidenote, my videos absolutely suck. So much wind noise, going to Google a solution for that as well.

Couple links to single laps. Turn down your speakers the wind is killer.

Well the trans is still killing me. Made it through the morning sessions fine but the afternoon sessions lasted about 15 minutes. Right now I have an external cooler, fan, and even tried insulating the lines by the exhaust. Looks like a deeper pan is a real solution.

I still managed to take 4 seconds off my best time. I even lifted to let someone pass as well. Should be sniffing a sub 3 minute time soon.

Well my winter projects are starting to come in the mail. I have SPL front control arms, SPL rear camber arms, and a set of Koni yellows on hand. I'm just waiting on the Swift springs to be delivered. I'm going to try the alignment myself, already have toe in plates and a camber/caster gauge.

Also ordered a PML trans pan that I'm hoping takes care of my overheating.

How do these alignment specs look for what I'm doing?
Front: -2.5 camber, 1/8in toe in
Rear: -2 camber, no toe in
