    I recognize it is not the fault of the military, but i also believe their oath "to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic" has largely been overlooked. I know I'm not the only one in my position. For all the sons, daughters, fathers and mothers that leave their families (some never to return) for all the billions spent on "national defense", what has actually been defended if this country's own citizens are subject to such horrific fates as having their own children ripped away and held hostage "legally"!?. I still struggle with this idea, but realize the soldier should not be caught in the middle of my frustrations. For this I apologize.

    This whole thing has brought me to the brink of bankruptcy. I have been living with my mother until Dec 2018 because every dime I make has been going to pay off legal debts and transportation costs to see my daughter and make sure Avery has the basics she needs. I see a community therapist once a week to help with what is obviously a fucked up situation. I hold it together only because my daughter needs me to. My comments about military are spoken because I find it hard to believe that my constitutional rights and freedoms still exist after these past three years. To name a few, I have lost: Right to bear arms (regained after a fight), Right to due process, Right to trial by jury at common law, Involuntary servitude, Failure to be provided equal protection under the law. As of December, I have managed to just crawl out of the debt hole enough to rent my own house in a family neighborhood for Avery's benefit. I now represent myself (and Avery so to speak) to avoid legal costs.

    I'm struggling. On top of losing my dad to cancer, I've been going through one of the most hostile custody battles you've ever heard of over the past 3 years over my 5 year old daughter. The judge hates me simply for wanting to be involved in my daughter's life. The divorce decree said i'm allowed to see my daughter 5-days/4-nights/month "not in the state of Texas".....where I live. I was able to get that changed in Feb 14, 2018 ONLY because my ex was caught shoplifting using our daughter as a diversion to steal $300 of cosmetics (she put stolen items on Avery and said "oops, I took those by accident") Judge said I could take Avery to Texas for 2 weeks at a time every 2 weeks, but I STILL had to pay transportation costs. Since then, I've found out my ex has been physically and mentally abusive to our daughter, CPS and Law enforcement have been involved but have literally told me I'm just an angry dad trying to get revenge on my ex. (never mind so much of Avery's behavior is on video).

    Are you going to do a build thread ?
    Im interested in what you and Brett have done,
    and you are going to have a chiller ?
    thats cool !!

    nice, keep us posted how it goes, and photos of your setup. Do you have a thread yet?

    yeah, i dont like delays of the inevitable however. It also takes much longer to cool back down when it is high capacity. I don't know enough about it all yet to know what IS possible for sustained runs... but I hope to learn more soon.

    i think it would be enough for drag racing, seems like good advice. Thank you for giving me someone to learn more from on this topic, I'm pretty ignorant on it still.

    I'm more interested in sustained long distance driving such as road courses etc, so more capacity wont be the solution for me, i would need more sustained ability to cool in real time.

    That makes sense. Ask him if it is possible to simply add a second condenser and a second chiller to the coolant line?

    The industrial one makes sense as well, but sometimes, 2 small is better than 1 big.

    Or ask him if the system can be forked after the single large compressor, to 2 condenser locations, and 2 valves, and then 2 chillers, or 1 large chiller after the 2 lines merge.

    I don't know much about tandem lines forking from a single compressor. But, i think the weak link in the stock system is the condenser not being large enough... and making it larger does not solve anything, as it has done its job for the stock flow of coolant...

    so if a person was going to flow more coolant from the compressor, they would need more condenser surface area to cool it all down.

    This is why i say 2 small might be simpler than 1 big. 2 stock systems instead of 1 industrial. Im not an expert in this field obviously.
