I've noticed that on many of these track purpose build cars that people will strip the entire interior, paint it, then install what they need, but most re-install the heater core also.

Is there a reason why this isn't just thrown out to save the weight? I can't figure if it's necessary to have, or just a requirement from some tracks.

Any help is appreciated, as I've started a build and currently have it removed. Was just curious why some leave it in.

thanks

My hatch is a street car and it doesnt have a heater core/ plenum in it... :rolleyes:

But to answer your question... I dont see it being required at any track

Not needed if its a track car, just loop it on the engine, but for me i kept it cause it would get cold driving it around town, a heater core is nice when you are out at night.

Heater cores to the garbage. Put a hoody, jacket, and some gloves on and u be good. I drove my car the other night and i only was cold on my hands. And it was like 15 degrees outside. And the car has a roll cage and no back panels. Plus s2k seats. So it wasnt that bad.

thanks for the replies guys....always saw it funny how guys would strip everything but leave that in. I guess it's just a matter of who can stand the cold better then others.

Yeah, it also depends on where you live. Here in New York sometimes it get really cold and i can't see my self without heat. but its a personal choice.
