I am using hockey pucks as bumpstop extensions in our TBSS is that bad?

Also, I have heard of guys using footballs in place of helper bags in springs.

Would a ball-valve be classier?

Exactly what I was thinking. Many years ago L Conley had a write up in GS Extra about a Quick Cool Down method for track days. It was basically remove thermostat, hook a garden hose size Plastic Tee to cut upper hose, add some heater hose with ball valve on the end that exits the hot water/steam under the frame. After a pass or two with the Engine at Idle, open ball valve, steam shoots out, remove rad cap & pour in cool water & the engine instantly cools down. Fill rad & as water cools down close Ball valve & top up rad. I did it a few times & it worked well but the engine better be running!! Man people used to look from a distance & scratch their heads!!   :O

My home made Up Pipe Cool Box made of Copper looked a damn Still but at least I was creative! Still have that copper bundle in my shop!  :rock:

Ya more or less but the 1/2 turn ball fitting was a few $$ more.  :)
The Cold Box had Tech guys ask a lot of questions at Cayuga but London they just asked if I had a helmet & good to go! Those were Fun times back in 90-92 & that's when Paul Beal (twin 86 GN's) was out with his Dad.

Jul 16, 2015 - 2015 Ford Edge water leaks will be fixed under customer satisfaction program 15B21


... snip...
Because the factory forgot to put seam sealer on the A-pillars (the pillars on the left and right sides of the windshield; they extend to the floor in front of the front doors.) the dealership mechanics were given the responsibility to install it.
In this case, they needed to remove the dash and carpet to get access to the bottom of the A-pillars and investigate for water damage.
Water leaks behind the dash are a particular concern, as there are a LOT of electronics in there... Entertainment and information systems, Powertrain Control Modules, controllers for door locks and windows... This is in addition to the rust/corrosion penetration warranty. Also people don't take kindly to paying several thousands of dollars for a vehicle and having it smell like wet dog all the time

It was one of those weeks. We had a young couple replace their left side lower control arm and than try to do the right side. This has a rear vertical mount and  tend to get squished on assembly, plus, the bolt tends to jam/rust in the inner sleeve.  Once all the bolts were out, they couldn't get it out of the mounting pad. So they give up put it back together, rounding out the threads in the process (which we didn't know at the time.) Thomas takes the phone call and tells them to bring it in, we'll see what we can do. So the guys get everything disconnected and get to the last bolt, the vertical one. It just keeps spinning and spinning. Than they call me over. We tried prying down while turning, hoping to get good threads. We tried cutting through the bushing and bolt with a sawz all. Nothing was working due to the limited amount of space. It was too far gone. Now I'm stumped. So I'm standing back, wondering what to do. The control arm is aluminum, a bit easier to cut than the bolt. So I get the wiz wheel. It would be real easy to ruin the mounting pad or the floor of the car. So I carefully cut the control arm from the car. Now, the bushing is left. I carefully cut the outer shell  of the bushing. Than I can peel the rubber away and get to the inside sleeve. Than I cut a series of slices in the sleeve to relieve the bolt stress and out came the bolt. It's been a while since I was this stumped but we got er' done.
