Had a scare the other night. My thermostat decided to stick shut during a race and the car pushed antifreeze into the overflow tank, which is smaller than the factory one (i have a CSR aftermarket billet aluminum overflow), the tank filled up and antifreeze spewed all over the road and onto my tires. Went for a little ride and saved it LUCKILY. So, I learnt my lesson lol and I want to relocate it to the rear of the car. Ive seen some guys do this before on racecars but never on a street car. Has anyone done this? Will it work on a street car? Ideas?

Option B: Buy a big ugly ass 1 gallon tank and pray it doesnt happen again.

On a serious note, this goes to show you how fast something minor can go wrong and cause MAJOR problems. Safety Safety Safety.

Stick it in the spare tire well. Just a $20 one from summit and run some hose. Could even add two of them for peace of mind

Battery is in the spare tire well..... I may put them where the rear bumper support used to be.
