8. if your radiator has an overflow bottle then check if the overflow bottle has an overflow, they don't like this for some stupid reason. So take a coke bottle and a zip tie or two in case they make you use it as an overflow overflow.

They don't like cars running without overflow, because due to the nature of the racing, the engine temperatures can get hot so that would also bring up the coolant temperature and some cars are more prone to bleeding off coolant then others, if there is an overflow bottle it catches the excess coolant that is bled out of the system and doesn't spill all over the track. Again if the overflow is full, maybe it is a good idea to drain it before hitting the track... to save being drilled and also the embaressment of holding up the nights proceedings.

6. keep your foot flat until well past the finish line, too often people lift off early.

Best advice, seriously.
Kept thinking to lift your foot off by the finish line, then again, I'm a bit of a retard.

The problem is most cars have and overflow hose in case the overflow bottle is full, they pick me on this in my commodore sometimes, even though the overflow bottle has heaps of room and I have a 4 core desert cooler radiator, CVR electric water pump and AU twin thermo fans lol.

Ok, ive never had an issue with that before... some cars like the Pulsar GTI-R just drain out the top, so I guess where you are coming from does have a point.

Thay had no problems with my overflow bottle. I suppose it depends on who looks at the car.

And yes the track here is a bit dodgy, and times will suffer significantly as have already found out. The left lane has a pothole in the brake area just as you jump on them which can be a little fun and lively in the back end when you swerve to miss it. The right lane however seemed to be fine to me.

Maybe they have fixed some of the holes down there as I was expecting alot worse than it was after hearing this from others.

Also in a fwd tire pressure isnt as much of an issue. I've always run around 23psi cause any lower and my tires started to "bounce" due to weight transfer off of them.
