CSF Radiators x Papadakis Racing
April 29, 2021
Like we always say, more power = more heat + driving hard = even more heat.
Not many know this better than professional drifters. Many Formula Drift cars push upwards of 1,000 horsepower (which is no easy feat in itself) – making a 1,000HP car reliable, and keeping it out on the track consistently is a whole different story.
First Public Debut of Our F9X Charge Coolers
March 2, 2021
Finally, a car show!
COVID put a huge damper on events on the West Coast and pretty much everywhere throughout 2020 – all the usual shows cancelled, including the highly anticipated SEMA and PRI Shows. In August, we had the opportunity to make the trip out to Pennsylvania’s Pocono Raceway for CSF’s first ever MPACT East – but that was about it.
A Slice of the SEMA Show in DTLA
November 24, 2020
This year is a weird one. A lot of our day-to-day activities and things we see as “normal” have been altered or taken away completely. As we approached the end of October – things sort of felt out of place. We weren’t scrambling to get our booth shipped, sorting out transport for cars, rushing to get new products to debut – and for the first time in a long time, we didn’t spend Halloween in Vegas.
Follow Along As We Rebuild Our Torched Racecar
October 13, 2020
In the span of four years, the CSF Evo X has gone through a tremendous transformation. Purchased by CSF at the end of 2016, it went from a crashed Pirelli World Challenge car long forgotten and collecting dust at the back of GMG Racing, to being one of SEMA 2017’s stand-out builds. The media buzz circling the “World’s Best Evo X Ever Built” going into 2018 catapulted the car to three top magazine covers, numerous online features, and an episode on season two of Hoonigan’s Build Biology Series.

Built over the course of the last year+, this Turbo S has been an insane partnership build with the best names in the industry.

Completely Cooled by CSF
August 19, 2020
It’s been 7 years since we first partnered up with Michael Essa. As one of the first major partnerships CSF secured as the company debuted into the racing and high-performance markets, its also one of the most close to us. Fast forward to 2013 – Michael had won his first Formula Drift championship, behind the wheel of his E46 M3, completely cooled by CSF products.
CSF Visits Turn14 & Attends the East Coast's Premier BMW Show
August 11, 2020
We’ve been all over the West Coast. Based in Rancho Cucamonga, CSF attends most all major shows here in Southern California – from the big ones like Wekfest and Bimmerfest, to more niche shows like the Eibach Honda Meet and Players Select (hosted here at our HQ). No matter what you drive, if you’re local to us, chances are you’ve seen us at a show here.

*Exhale*… After a long 8 months, I finally had my RSX back – full identity change into a JDM Honda Type-R DC5 build.
CSF Then & Now + Our Relationship with Stanceworks
June 5, 2020
Everyone knows CSF as a cooling system manufacturer but, truth be told, that’s only part of the equation for us.
The CSF Racing & High-Performance Division was founded with different reasoning in mind – a deeper purpose than just pushing out products. Everyone at CSF Race eats, sleeps, and bleeds automotive aftermarket. That’s why we take such pride in our products – not only because we’re proud of what we create, but because of the relationships this allows us to create within the industry.
Giving New Life to the Daily

Written by Ravi Dolwani, Owner of CSF Race
It was Spring 2019, and I was on my way to work, dodging cars through traffic on the infamous 91 freeway in Southern California. This was pre-COVID-19, so there were tons of semi trucks and commuters clogging up all six lanes of Calfornia concrete. On my usual +/- 1 hour drive to and from work, the light bulb went off my head…
