Preheating our engine saves us money by extending the engine’s service life. Pre heating the engine before starting will eliminate one rebuild during the racing season. We see less wear and safely run the engine well past where we used to send it in for a rebuild. Pre-heating with the Hot Head engine heating allows optimal piston and cylinder clearance to be at designed specification and mix oil to achieve maximum performance”

Here are some facts that we learned about after using our system this season:

  • The initial/first start-up the engine feels “free” and revs without laboring
  • We used less fuel during the day to keep engine warm
  • Less engine and clutch wear from having to run engine for warm up
  • We had more stable race temps during the day, 55C degrees on hard throttle/load
  • Driver was more confident on the starts with engine at correct temp rather than worrying it was not warm enough

No more unnecessary rebuild costs and  worries about struggling to warm up engine. The Hot Head engine heater eliminates problems caused by  cold climates and new quiet rules.  Our team lost an engine because of a stuck (seized) piston.   The repair cost and lost points could have been avoided had we found our solution earlier.

Notice the smoke coming from our competitors engines, this is evidence of incomplete combustion.  This loss of  initial power allows us to make more passes at the beginning of a race. Even after warm up laps,  a smoking engine at the start of a race is evidence that there is power loss due to cold combustion temperatures”  Once teams started using the Hot Head engine heater “Our pre-heated engine it starts right up without using the choke.  Our engine does not smoke, that’s evidence that we are getting maximum power at the starting line.

A huge thanks to Pete Davis and HotHead Products for their support in our effort to win races. The HotHead heater is a big must. I and can't imagine running a race without it.  When you arrive at track in the early cold morning, plug in the heater and let the thing do its magic. While you are listening to everyone else free revving there motors on the stand,  you are focused on other things and progressing more rapidly towards having top notch equipment ready to drop on the grid. HotHead competition heaters will make your motor happy happy!  It's like bringing breakfast in bed to your expensive power plant."
