Still here, just doing non-car stuff. Yesterday we saw a Ariel Atom near here, but since I was in my truck, nothing came of it. However, someday I hope to meet up with that car while driving Midlana…

I need to install the new larger oil/coolant heat exchanger. One thing about the design that seems wrong is that the oil to be cooled enters the center of the housing and flows out the bottom – again at the center. (See one here.) I have a hard time believing that the oil somehow evenly distributes itself across the core. I don’t have proof but it seems like 90% of the oil will go straight across the assembly instead of spreading out, so the fittings relocated at opposite ends of the assembly, and the stock ports plugged.
