View Full Version : ROAD/RACE- Heat Management Products

08-10-2013, 12:31 PM
Road Race is proud to announce new Heat management products. RRM has taken things to the next level. After racing TURBO cars for 20 years, we know the importance of managing heat. Turbochargers and parts adjacent to a turbo can glow red hot. They heat cycle every time you push down the gas pedal hard. With that RRM made sure to address this and we looked at the options on the market and improved on them. We have used a Military contractor for years to produce the products we need and now we have used them to improve on the rest. This is the stuff that wins races!

Materials are simply the best you can use. This is the most exotic material and the same material used for the actual impeller of a turbocharger. Needless to say it creates the most incredible barrier along with other materials. We have made the turbo blanket and even a way to protect the entire oil supply side. Here are some pictures of the latest (improved) ROAD/RACE turbo manifold blanket and oil supply sleeve. Along with that you will see other pictures comparing new to old etc.... Our blanket is larger and covers more turbo and related areas too. So you cover more area. The price is only $20 different but with you get so much more. The materials are worth twice that of the others. Lets start with pictures.

Great products again from R/R! You guys never cease to amaze me and keep burning holes in my pockets. Will the turbo blanket be available in other colors down the road? What's the silver/grey tubing w/ the blue end caps? Will you eventually come out w/ a wrap for your new Sportivo Hi Flow cell DP? Look forward to more details and pics of where the orange oil supply sleeve goes. Thanks R/R for continuing raise the bar and making better products for the community.

Ordered, heat wrap and oil line wrap...hopefully no more burns on my hands..LOL

Should be added to our site in few minutes. Looks much bigger that the other proprietary one. Ill post a review once its in. With before and after underhood temps.

Want to make me one for the Volvo...21psi is pushing the envelope with the 16T.

Forgot to add some people with other D.P. think that they cannot run any heat shields. With our DP you can use the upper shield and blanket etc.... and oil supply shield. It is all meant to work together.

I know you can install the turbo blanket any time, but should these other heat management parts be installed before or after the DP is installed? I want to avoid removing the DP again to minimize my installation cost.

Here are some amazing pictures. Some of you may have seen things like this but I know some have not seen it. Look at the heat potential and look at the quality work our supplier does to solve real life heat management issues. I always say, what we do not know, we know someone who does know. We employ the best to help RRM make the best for our product line.

Youll want to install the wrap on the DP before install. Once you remove the upper and lower heat shields and the stock DP with the huge cat you will have plenty of room to install the new RR DP pre wrapped.

THIS WAS ASKED in another thread. Also NOTE WITH OUR D.P. you will still use your upper heatshield and blanket etc...... You do not need lower shield because of the CERAMIC COATING. Others are not thinking of this because Ceramic Coating costs a bit of $. We just DO IT.
Colors huh? mmmmmmmmm Let me change the subject.
One picture I need to post is a picture of the backside (not seen) not shown in pictures yet. This is the most important side. It is inconel. Please look up this material. This is the key. Inconel is a family of austenitic nickel-chromium-based superalloys. Inconel alloys are typically used in high temperature applications. It is often referred to in English as "Inco" (or occasionally "Iconel"). Common trade names for Inconel Alloy 625 include: Inconel 625, Chronin 625, Altemp 625, Haynes 625, Nickelvac 625 and Nicrofer 6020.[2]

This is used for Jet Engines, turbocharger impellers etc...... Anywhere the heat is off the chart. Again this is where the main difference is. If we do colors, IF, we will be sure to give it silly names like fingernail polish for teens. You know, fun names for fun colors. :) It is all in the marketing I guess. If you want color and heat shielding,add this to your blanket......... They are totally compatible.

Ull probably see more of the effect in the head shield on the road and having that flow of air cool down the engine bay. But I did notice when I was changing my oil the other day. Everything get so damn frikem hot in there. Olly molly. I wanna just leave my hood off.

Get hood vents. I noticed a big diff in getting rid of a lot of that hot air and more consistent engine performance.

We will be dynoing the blanket and the side skirts this week just like the competitors do. We at least want to be held to the same standard that our competition is held to. Red should be about 2 h.p. more than black.

After looking at a couple pictures I called the manufacturer....

There is more tech data to follow but the manufacturer did send me the some basic numbers, not unlike what they send to the Marine Corp or Coast Guard, some of their clients.
INCONEL IS 3000 DEGREE METAL AND THE INSIDE MATERIAL IS 2000 DEGREE FIBER WITH 1800 DEGREE OUTSIDE MATERIAL WHICH MAKES THE PART MORE DURABLE AND LONGER LASTING THAN MOST ANYTHING OUT THERE FOR THE JOB. More tech to follow. Hope this give people something to latch on to. Plus workmanship is superior to anything we have seen.

Sure, Just call it $39. Call in if you want it. We will add it to the site. Maybe look at the package again though. It is quite different than what is out there, It is kind of like converting from an MM box to an RRM EMC. It really makes a difference.

Popped a CEL (Malfunction Indicator Light) today in sport mode w/ less than 20 miles on DP w/ CEL eliminator installed. :-( Perhaps I should have run it longer in normal mode for about 80 mi. to have the ECU learn the new DP? Will reset ECU and run it 80 miles in normal mode keeping it under 4k rpm as suggested by R/R. Hope this works.

We will have an electronic one and we are giving a mechanical one with the HF Cat version DPs. Guys with Catless DPs from us and others will not get away with mechanical pieces. They will need electronic units. Those will come shortly. Our HF cat guys should not need it.
Note we know our D.P. is the only one to address heat management by itself but we will offer even more products to help give people added peace of mind and cooler and cooler under hood temps. Look for announcements of that soon.

Glad you like it and see the quality of such a part. It is well thought out and the kind of piece that if it were $500 or $1000 it would still be made the same way with the same quality components. If you were a military contractor, it would certainly cost much more than $199. Thnx

Installed R/R Turbo Blanket and oil line sleeve. Pretty easy install thanks to their new DIY video and Roman's helpful advice for the sleeve install over the phone. Thanks Roman! Wow, what a big difference in significantly lowering my engine bay temps. I could really feel the diff in temp by holding my hand over the turbo/DP area after a hard spirited run. R/R was not kidding when they said this is simply the best material to use as used for aircraft turbine engines, etc. I'm glad the R/R kit includes 3 longer bolts which are the right length as the stock ones are way too short to thread properly. The oil line sleeve is also an excellent idea for heat mgt. as was confirmed by a very experienced mechanic who also works on turbos. I highly recommend this kit if u r serious about heat management for your Abarth. Thanks R/R!

Though this may be an old video of our old builds of the SX4 turbo, this displays how much heat is produced in the engine bay, at just 8 PSI! At about 57 seconds into the clip, you'll see the manifold glow red hot. Granted the car was pushed a bit harder than usual but this is to show how hot it can get. This is for reference as this does apply to every turbo application out there. We push to help customers with this heat issue by trying to deflect it elsewhere so it does not disturb anything.

This a great video of a TURBO Suzuki SX4 (or FIAT Sedici) we built for American Suzuki Corp. That said it is the glowing red hot down pipe that people need to key in on. They get hot, hot and hot. This cycling is also why we do not make our downpipes out of Stainless Steel. This cycling is what cracks them in a matter of months if you use thin wall SS instead off the thicker steel we use. And of course this is why a Thermal Jacket like we make is a great idea and money well spent.
