I believe the coolant it uses is similar to antifreeze.

Correct. It uses a specially designed coolant. The coolant formula includes propylene glycol and fungicide. It’s 100% non-toxic and biodegradable. The system comes with a 1.5 liter supply which should last for an entire season.

Interesting.

IMSA wouldnt allow me to run the RINI box due to the coolant it uses.
Would this be IMSA legal?

If anybody that has this system and is racing the PCA Club Race at VIR this coming weekend please let me know. I’ll be racing and I’d love to hear your thoughts as this race usually is a true test of cooling systems. Thanks.

I saw it and tried a lose fitting vest on the weekend at Rd ATL. I really wanted to like it and am still considering.

Initial impressions; Looks great. Small and pretty quiet Don’t think it’s quite as cool as ice cold water shirt/coolclava set-up ( I run this with 2 pump Franken roto-molded box). Especially when/if you Y-connect for shirt/helmet combo.

The advantages are pretty obvious- size, weight, convenience etc.

The real and potential disadvantages as I see being; cost, wide ranging current draw and first gen product that could be subject to bugs and potentially failure with no easy swap out on a hot weekend. Also it’s a heater exchanger- if mounted in cockpit, that heat has got to go somewhere. Maybe not as hot as Cup motor or ambient temps but it’s more warm air.

Would like to hear more from actual users if any at this point. Any beta-testers?

This guys used one in a race https://barrysracing.home.blog/author/barrywhoami/ His experience in a car is a bit different sounding than some of the other TA2 drivers I work with, but I think it's a decent review.

Quite comprehensive I’d say- thanks for posting Matt.

Purchased the system a couple of weeks ago - only used it once. The blog post shared by Matt is pretty thorough and I've not much to add. It is compatible with my FAST shirt and hoses which I liked. The current draw is more significant that I had expected so it's powered directly from my little battery. It took awhile to drop the temperature from 90F ambient and drew close to 30a. Switching it on dropped my car's idle note about 2 octaves. Learning point for me - start it cooling 20m before I need to drive the car. They offer an AC adapter which I'm considering in order to pre-cool the system without depending on the running car for power.

Which car are you running it in and what were running prior- full FAST system? Once you got it cooled, how did the cooling compare- as cool?

Using it in a BMW e46 race car. It took longer to cool the water than FAST but cooled it to COLD, ambient was 90+F. The FAST effectively cooled for a partial sprint race while the ice melted and water warmed. For enduros, I cycled power to the FAST in order to stretch its cooling through the race. The Chillout cools to the temp set and then holds that temperature.

To be clear, the AC adapter could pre-cool before before a race say, but I guess you need the shirt attached as well during that time. If you did that, once in the car would it still be drawing circa 30a to maintain the temp?
The alternator on a Cup is not huge and neither is the battery. so the draw up to 30a is the major concern.
