Default ice on the intercoler?

I am planning on going to the drag strip some time soon (1st time as RS-T). I want to put a bag of ice on my intercooler in the staging lanes/in line before I race. I assume that dry ice would be better for doing this. should I use dry ice or regular ice? Does ice on the intercooler before a drag run even help?

I've always used regular ice, never had a problem.. I'd be worried about handling dry ice, personally...

id go with the regular ice, you cant really bag dry ice since it would sublimate and turn into co2 and youd just have a fat balloon of co2, well i guess you can poke holes in the bag but then the ice might fall out. and if you use it without the bag it might dance around on your ic

you can always smash dry ice up, and put it into a plastic bag w/ a rubber band on the top... the co2 will escape as needed. It doesnt sublimate THAT fast that u need to poke holes in the bag.... just make sure the top isnt tight.

Careful w/ Dry ice though, it is severly colder, but it makes things extremely brittle. Hell, id try it
