+1 for Engine Ice. It cost me a bunch to have it put in my R1, but well worth it.

7th Gear, Engine Ice, Evans = all identical and all good

Water Wetter is best for the track but even then it's usually only if you're running in the advanced classes

The reason watter wetter is used on the track for all classes is cuz its not glycol based..If you bin it, it wont make the track slick and will dissipate.

the main problem with water wetter is the fact that it CANNOT be left in if you live somewhere that the winter gets cold. it will freeze and crack your sh*t and then you won't be very happy will you?

Cyclelogic's Engine Ice... hands down. Accept no others!

It lowered the running temp of my 9R by like 15-20 degrees!

Can you use it on the track and can you use it in the winter?

YES & YES!

There is rumor that some tracks are starting to not allow it. Saying that Engine Ice's very own special glycol is still slippery. Dyno on WOS had a thread about that.... over there.
