Why do it and bleed it twice ??
cos the bypass doesn't arrive until after my trackday on anglesey this weekend :(
UFO 7 WTF , 3d printed stuff and self cancelling indicators
I may be underestimating the amount of effort blocking off the heater will be. seems bleeding it on an R400 is non-trivial
14 That depends on set up, my 2015 R400D bleeds very easily with little effort.
For the track day, would you get away with just blocking off the heater air intake on the bonnet? I doubt the heater will transfer much heat into the footwells if there's no air flow through it. I'm thinking something as simpke as a rectangle of cardboard over the heater intake before putting the bonnet on. PS: I'm also thinking K Series and I'm aware the heater design changed on more recent cars so if that's just not relevant please ignore.

blocking the intake would be a bad move. there is a fan duct that you can close to stop the incoming blowtorch.
I want cool air in there cos it's too damn hot with the heat coming off the firewall.
.... having the heater on will act as a second radiator and aid cooling on track. Just sayin'
