    Its a Power Steering Tank.
    I burnt up a couple pumps so I built this tank to increase the fluid supply and put baffles and screens in it to limit slosh and separate the foam from the fluid.
    Works like a charm.

    Everybody has their purpose, mine seems to be making things.

    I spoke at length with the owner and he assured me this was plenty capable of providing 1hr to 1 1/2 hrs of cooling. He's put a lot of R&D into this and is confident in his product.
    He's been making these for years but I haven't seen one until now.
    They are big in the off road industry.
    He has an elite system that looks really good and saw some glowing youtube videos from other users so I went with it.

    I like the size and the price of the 400 series so I guess I'll be the guinea pig.
    Stay tuned.

    Quality is everything here at Specfab Racing.
    Here is a short video of our QC guy checking our "Billet Aluminum Shot Glasses" for leaks...
    (Looks like this one is okay)


    Poor guy went through a whole bottle checking them. What a trooper.

    Obviously he only check it for Burbon leakage. I'll have to stop by my next tyme out your way to see if it holds Vodka. I'm guessing it will but if I'm pouring it would hold the fluid for long.

    That one is actually his. I've sold about 40 of these so far and guys have been sending me pictures of them in use. I do have a virgin one here that hasn't seen liquid yet but so far no-one has brought a bottle by for me to check it out. :(

    Bacardi? George at MPH would need one of those for his Bacardi Bus. As a machinist himself, I'm sure he could provide a thorough design function analysis and stringent QC test.
    Very nice shot glasses.

    Fabman, I am a Mormon, from Utah. I just about fell out of my chair laughing at the missionary mime! It was awesome! Yes, tires can be a religious experience!

    So, do you plan to stream that 360 view while you're driving?
