    Gets a little wobbly up top.

    With your stall...you should be able to warm them up and let them rip.

    Did the car spin? Or did you get wheel hop?
    Or were you just not in the powerband for that cam?

    I wheel hopped a bit but I can't do nice burnouts like M6 to heat up the tires,
    I went around the water box, no burn out either,

    You should still be able to warm them up.
    Go around the waterbox...and back into it. Get the MT's a little wet...and powerbrake it. Hold the brake just enough to stay still.

    5 second warming is all they need.

    Check the lines on the cooler. Might just be a line that needs attention.

    LG shipped it to RPM Transmissions... I'll stop by Monday morning at LG to check the coolant line. I think you're right it's the Redline coolant they put it, it's pinkish and it's got an oily feel. cool, thanks mate!
