I run my motor without any antifreeze as I was told many years ago that they prefer that at the racetrack in case of a coolant leak and the problems with cleaning up antifreeze after a coolant leak. How long can I do this before I suffer block damage because of corrosion? Is there a substitute that isn't so difficult to clean up if there is a coolant leak?

I've not had and corrosion that I can see,and I've had it in my last 2 cars.Remember,the water can still FREEZE though.
