Road America ?

Is coolant in your bike okay or do I need to switch it to 100% water. I vaguely remember hearing about an STT event where only water, no Engine Ice/Water Wetter, could be ran in the radiator.

From Nesba FAQ:

24) Must I drain my coolant system?
Only Advanced class riders must change from antifreeze to water (see p. 16 in manual for how-to instructions).
Engine Ice and Evans Coolant are NO longer permitted!

I am running water wetter.

I know in the advance class for STT you need to drain and replace coolant.

Both advanced and intermediate need to change to water for STT.

Thats more like it! In my opinion everyone riding on the track should have to switch over to water. People go down in every class, and when someone goes down that has anti-freeze in their bike and spills all over the track it takes away everyones expensive track time. I don't know about anyone else but I work hard for my money and I don't go to the track to wait around for them clean anit-freeze off of it because someone is too lazy to take 10 minutes to put water in their bike.

I run water wetter 'cause it makes me feel all growd up and fast!

And I'm hoping that the more I prepare for crashes (water wetter, pre-scuffed fiberglass) the less likely it will be to happen.
