theres no intercooler, I have that issue. The car only runs for maybe a minute at the most. I't doesn't need one. most full race cars either run a small one or none at all unless they have really high hp.

I have never heard of that and the turboed race cars i've seen have large front mounts or liquid to air ones. I will check out the super street when i get a chance though. So u think 850hp isn't "really high hp" ??

i'm sayin that that car only runs for a minute at a time at the most and with as good a tuning race cars have it doesnt have heating problems.
