They don't allow AC on the track or while staging. It wets down the track from the condensation. You run with no AC, windows all up for safety. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

Roasting from before the water box (when you have to raise the windows), during the burnout, while staging, and all the way to the line. A couple minutes can be pure hell.

Ya I thought about that and realized that I was a lil off....LOL

My car just wasn't feeling the condition to race......I had some bad trans temps yesterday.....hit 228* after the toll boths trying to catch the other guys on the way home....can't imagine what a track would do to it. After a while it did drop back down to about 195*.

Gonna install an aux trans cooler when I do my next oil change and tranny filter change...in about 2500 miles.
