    Default Power steering cooler locating.

    I have a little alloy 'radiator' style power steering fluid cooler ready to install, but dont know where to put it.
    If I put it in front of the radiator, It gets cool air relative to car speed but no fan force.

    If I put it behind the radiator it gets around 60 degree air blown through it but at great force.

    I'm guessing the max temp is a fair bit above 60 degrees, but dont know enough about heat load of air and other such matters of physics to make an informed decision about which would be better. Any tips??

    I had the opportunity to really put the tyres through their paces through the national park tonight.
    I was impressed.
    Not as impressed as the frst time I tried semi slicks, or when Cdrives came on the market, but these are nice tyres.
    They handle very well , are quiet, both in tread noise and when pushed hard, are very very comfortable over the rough stuff.

    The conditions tonight were potentially deadly. The roads were clean and dry and offering enormous grip, but having had rain lately every 4th apex or braking spot had a wet spot from the stream of water running down it.
    These tyres didn't budge off line one bit, so its clear they are a soft tyre and probably wont last long.
    On the uphill hairpin that you can overcook and still live, I over cooked it massively just to see what would happen, and although the car chassis bucked back and forward n a wild state of understeer wheel spin, as soon as the speed was stabilised, it was back to business with no fuss whatsoever.

    If I'm not mistaken, the ps3's have more grip on acceleration out of corners than the Cdrives in 60 profile.
    either that or my donk is down on power.

    Obviously boiling the PS fluid is potentially a problem??

    I looked at that and thought, 'He's just made that up', so did a search, realised you did not, read a few examples... and it came back to me...what a math moron I am.
