Laguna Seca trackday

Its my first time at Laguna Seca and I know they are certain guidelines to follow there. One of them is the no coolant issue. I've heard of others running water wetter with distilled (?) water but does anyone know if they will let you run Engine Ice in you coolant system? Reading the label it looks like Engine Ice has not glycol based and should be okay.

Anyone with any experience?

thanks

Distilled water is always best...Water Wetter will lubricate the cooling system and aid in heat transfer to keep your bike cool.

Engine Ice doesn't cool as well as water wetter with water. Its advantage is that it doesn't freeze over.

It will depend on the trackday organization. Most won't let you run engine ice because it is just as hard to clean up as glycol based coolants. Water wetter and water are easy to clean up.

Forget the engine ice. Distilled water + wetter both on and off the track. The REAL problem at Laguna is the 94db sound limit. The sound booth is located on the uphill portion of the back straight just about where you will red-line 3'rd gear. Three passes over the limit and your done for the day. You must have minimum 6" numbers on three sides of your ride so that you are easily identified by the noise Nazi's. Good luck.

+1 on Waterwetter/Distilled water

Forget the Engine Ice idea. Most orgs who ban engine coolant will consider Engine Ice just as bad as coolant.
