LET’S NOT OVERDO IT

Our Winter Tests continue to explore and uncover the mysteries of cooling: this time we test a narrow 20 cm radiator against a “normal” radiator.

TRACK TEST WIDE VS NARROW RADIATOR

In our previous Winter Test, when we looked into the inner workings of kart cooling systems, we saw how what was taken for granted didn’t always actually occur when we tested alongside the technical folks at Officine in Progress (Daniele Parravano and Andrea Saccucci). What we found, instead, only verified that there are many shady areas in relation to how these systems truly function and how also, from a technical standpoint, they are made in a way that is far from irreproachable and/or strictly functional.

So before things get hot in the karting world, weather-wise, but also in sports terms, we wanted to perform a test that, at least in theory, is best performed when the outdoor temperatures are still quite low - and at this point we would not be surprised if things proved differently from expectations. What we’re going to look into is a small radiator - much smaller. In fact, we tried the New Line’s 20 cm width model, the R model that in the Modena company’s catalog reach to 29 cm models - not to mention additional supplementary or extra radiators, of which more at the end. Ours was the same as the radiator normally mounted on the test kart, a motorized DR of the 125 gearbox class.
