The car has plenty of coolent, and the only other thing I can think of about that race was that I was deffinitely pushing the car (5500-6000 rpm in second gear) but I didn't think the car would have such a reaction. oh, and the car has close to 250000 miles on it. Thanks for any help you guys can offer!
Fan clutch maybe.
