They gave away like 5 cases of Engine Ice at the FL CCS banquet, so I will go out on a limb and say it's legal down here.   ;)

Neither should be legal because they are both very slippery and many organizations have banned them.  
    Do the responsible thing and run water-wetter or something just like it.  We had this thread several months ago, so look back in the archives or what not.  Many people argued that in the north it gets cold at night and they don't want their bike to freeze at the colder races in the early spring and late fall.  They present a good point, but the solution in safety's sake is to take the extra ten minutes to drain and refill the next morning being cautious to get all the water out so the block doesn't freeze.  Anybody is capable of this task.  Ten minutes lost is worth the safety of 100 other racers, period!  In my opinion, this pretty much sums it up.  If you want to argue with me, you are saying ten minutes is more important than my safety-- and that is pretty ignorant.  Unfortunately, someone will have the extra ten minutes to whine about what a pain it is to be safe, is this the kind of person racers want to share the track with?

Draining and refilling does not get the water out of the water passages in the engine, the same ones that cause engine damage.

Ask race engine builders how many damaged engines they get every yea from this...I have!

Would you rather be on the track with the very small potential of spiling some coolant...or the bigger possibility of me blowing an engine and spraying god knows what all over the race line?

Oil is slippery too, common sense would tell you that we shouldn't put it out on the track either right?

If it is in your bike, yes.

So, engine ice and evans goes in the bike, what's the difference?  Anything that gets on the track whether it be oil, antifreeze, water or last nights dinner is going to be slippery.  The big disadvantage with anti-freeze is that it's very hard to clean up and that's the primary reason it's illegal.  I am not sure if engine ice or evans is more slick than water but since they are deemed legal I'm sure that they are easily cleaned up should a spill occur.
