    Ride plate leaking coolant.

    I already know that I am going to upgrade the ride plate at some point. I am just not sure to which one. I want to stick with the closed loop cooling but I don't want to need to repair the leaks from around the screws every other season, so I am thinking about going open loop, which opens up a whole bunch of ride plate options. I am wondering if there is some way to prevent this leaking from occuring (maybe speed freaks does this?) or if just installing the open loop is my best bet. Is the open loop an easy install? It's an 08 RXP-X BTW.

    I wouldn't do the open loop.
    Just get a ride plate that doesn't leak.
    Going open loop can open up a lot more possible issues.
    I've never had to seal a ride plate so I'm not sure why your having issues.

    It's the OEM plate...the coolant leaks from around the screws. It did it a year ago and I sealed the ones that were leaking with RTV...maybe I should just seal all of them. Yeah I hear you about the open loop but I cant find any afternarket plates for closed loop...only modifying the one I have. It started leaking again this weekend
