I've seen people using dry ice as well which wouldn't melt like normal ice.
Yes but dry ice would be a problem because when it melts/evaporates it produces Carbon Dioxide which hinders combustion. Ice as least just becomes water/water vapour which can drain away.
I guess it would depend on how much airflow as to if the CO2 from the dry ice would make much of a difference.
Falcon Killer (if you believe what Ford Service Departments have to say about me)
AU II XR6 - October 2001 ~ December 2002 - RIP
BA XR6 - December 2002 ~ Soon to disappear if Ford CRC can't fix it....
45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
One prob with ice at dragways is the marshals dont realy like water dripping out of the engine bay and i know alot of eople pare gona say they wet the burnout area but it beats me. I was thinking about the a/c condensor idea but i figured that the power the a/c compresor sucks it just wouldent be worth it
Sort of on the topic. i thought about putting in an Aircond condenser running the cold side. So it works like an intercooler but better. I wonder how good it would work
i heard off a mate whos a mechanic at ford, that jaguar a few years ago had experimented with some of their cars coiling the air cond cold line in the air box and it apparently made back the couple of hp the compressor uses to run
