    Giant Air conditioning.
    Proven Air, with 120 plus people in the shop during the ISRA world championships, we turned down the Temp and dropped our 11,000 square foot facility 5 degrees in 23 minutes.

    2012 Wing car Nats, why come to Chicago?

    If the new proposal passes, then the 2012 nats will be held in september. No need for that sized a/c and would cost any of the host raceways less money.

    Would roger have to charge for the webcam just to cover the bill of that ac? Lol

    Roger, nice air conditioner! Does that come in the Turbo version??? Just looking at that makes my electric meter spin. I have two of what looks like Volvo's on the roof, they get the job done.

    Thank You that is one he77 of a ac unit (do ya think their trying to compensate for something) lol. I can attest that that thing really blows come cold air and drops the temp of the raceway FAST, now we just gotta keep it about 50 degrees in the raceway so we get all the fun!!!

    Yes John Ody's list points out that the nats have been bouncing back and forth between the midwest and east coasts. It is time that the nats come back to the West Coast, hasnt been out here since 2005.

    Wow, look at the views on this thread already looks like someone from the west may need to let everyone know just what they have to offer?

    These are some nice A/C units, but what good is it to have to use up all of your profit or a good portion of it, to pay the light bill associated with powering these big beauties?
