Unboxing The Quantum Pro
In the Quantum Pro package, you'll find:
- The Quantum Pro cooler itself
- Carbon fiber mounting plate
- Rubber standoff feet
- Quick-release pins
- An 8-gauge, 12-foot wiring harness
The Quantum Pro is known for its cooling power—it's capable of over 500 watts of cooling. One of its distinguishing features is the 19-ounce reservoir, which is particularly advantageous during driver changes. This ample reservoir ensures that the driver's shirts always have enough coolant, minimizing the risk of insufficient cooling or fluid loss during driver changes, especially in long endurance races, such as 24-hour races.
One of the common accessories for the Quantum Pro is the dash-mountable remote control. This accessory plugs right into the side of the Quantum Pro system and replicates the screen found on the system itself—allowing you to control and visualize everything via the remote display.
For optimal performance, Chillout Motorsports recommends ducting the Quantum Pro system, preferably using their 4-inch ducting. Once connected, the system should slide back into its mounting plate. The four-inch NACA duct and the four-inch Ram Air duct are among the most common choices. If you're using the four-inch ducting, you won't need an inline blower, ensuring a straightforward setup.
However, if you must use three-inch ducting, you'll likely need an inline blower due to increased static resistance with the tubing and fittings. For some car models like Dodge Vipers, Trans Am series cars, and Corvettes, it may be challenging to find space to mount a NACA duct of this size. In such cases, the carbon fiber Ram Air duct becomes an attractive option. It consumes the least amount of space on the car while still supplying enough airflow to the system without necessitating an inline blower.
Power Usage and Weight
The Quantum Pro system operates optimally between 18-20 amps, depending on the cooling it receives. Keeping the system cool can potentially reduce the amp draw to around 15-16 amps. Despite its powerful cooling capabilities, the Quantum Pro only weighs 10.5 pounds, thanks to its carbon fiber construction.
Setup and Maintenance
For installation, you'll need to order a coolant cable (available in 6, 10, or 14-foot lengths) to connect the Quantum Pro directly to the driver. The system comes with standard coolant hoses, but you may also opt for the Rapid Release system or no-drip connectors.
To maintain the Quantum Pro, Chillout Systems recommends using their coolant concentrate, specifically the 50% glycol blend variant. This blend prevents growth within the system and keeps the evaporator from freezing over.
Interface and Functionality
The Quantum Pro features a straightforward interface. You set the desired temperature (smaller reading), and the system shows the current temperature (larger reading). The display also shows the flow status of the system and the compressor speed. If there's an obstruction in the shirt, an error will appear.
Looking for a powerful and versatile racing system? Consider the Quantum Pro from Chillout Motorsports. Although it may not be the smallest or lightest option, its large reservoir makes it a great choice for endurance racing and frequent driver changes.
