---Any Info on Radiator World Race or Medium Sized Radiators----

As stated in the title I would like any available feed back on the Radiator world Radiators. Specificly I'm trying to decide which radiator would be better for my application. I run a greddy two row front mount, and do drive my car in traffic. Those reasons being why i'm skeptical of going with the race version as it may be too large to fit the intercooler piping over it and it may be too large to cool enough when in traffic. I currently run the Radiator world OEM replacement but am finding that it doesnt keep temperatures as low as I would like due to the fin interval on the radiator and my FMIC blocking the nose of the car.

Again Any feedback is helpfull,

Josh

If I remember correctly, the "medium" is THICKER than the Fluidyne radiator.

Since I run a very THICK SMIC (SR Motorsports), I had to go wth the thinner Fluidyne.

Works well for a dual street & road-track car.

Considering that your FMIC will already be blocking the lion's share of the air, I would recommend using a Fluidyne sized radiator.

Is that because it would be thinner than say a koyo or the race sized radiator and because being thinner air would be able to pass through it easier?

Basically yes. Since your air velocity is going to be much less with the FMIC in front of it, I wouldn't choose a very thick radiator core.

I've been trying to buy a radiator from RadiatorWorld for over a week. Their website is acting weird...when you go to check out, a box pops up saying that radiatorworld.com uses an invalid security certificate, and that it expired in march.
I called three times and left messages telling them exactly what I want. No call back, no answer when I keep calling and no returned emails either.

Either they went out of business, they're on vacation without mentioning it on their site or voicemail, or this recession isn't hitting them and they don't need my 300 bucks.
Whatever the case, I guess I'll have to look elsewhere for a quality radiator on the cheap.

3rd gen FS section, here I come.
