There is also the fact that Evans has MUCH less heat transfer ability
than standard coolant.  Is too thick for most water pumps to be able to
flow well, and was specifically designed for the corvette originally.
The corvette used to run too COOL, and they needed a type of coolant that
would be able to let the car heat up MORE and they designed this kind of

Oh yeah, there is also the fact that it is combustable around 400
degrees.  The race cars that use it usually end up as one big fireball if
a bit of it leaks.

Sorta makes you think about it doesnt it?
