    Yamato Cooling

    Whats the problem with Yamato cooling?I'am just getting into this with a new 302...after 15 years of development,what is the problem?I Watching the race at Millville during the fall meet this month, I noticed a trail of steam right behind the water flex hose area of the engines.I did think that was odd.

    New rule: Drivers may cool their Yamatos however they wish, just no drilling into the power head.

    ​Problem solved.

    Looks like the whole foot is in the water. They probably run abou 55mph. Watching videos there is almost no rouster tail.

    I do not know but probably with the cavitation plate at the water surface, otherwise why even have one.

    Mike Perman won the Apba CSH nationals back to back. 2007 & 2008. Both wins with a 302.

    At what depth is a Yamato designed to run at with no pumping or heating issues ?

    As one who has pulled off due to lack of cooling more times than I can count....(and almost always in 1st place)....I'd use the words "frustrating", "uncalled for" and "ridiculous"....

    Funny. I started racing in 2006. And still remember how silly it looked when people pulled off the course with cooling issues...

    cooling modification...........

    would not a more simpler solution to the "cooling problems" related to the 302's, to just allow the inlet hole in the exhaust snout to be opened up more, versus adding a pickup, which will slow you down? Just amend the dimensions for the hole.........

    The Cool Team is hard at work to help solve this for all Yamato Engines. Call your SORC Commissioners and tell them 'i am mad as hell and i am not going to take it anymore' ..................(always liked that movie).

    Exactly the reason I made a comment to bring it to the top of the forum. So everyone could see that possibly this problem may never be resolved. Might be time to look at another class before I spend anymore money on a "stock" Yamato

    Seems to me that they were talking about solving the problem the same way that they are talking about now!! Was no one listening 11 years ago??
