You keep the water/ice mixture in the cell when you're racing only...
Get to the track,fill it up with ice water, race and add ice & water when needed, drain the cell before you load it up on the trailor.

air to water isn't good for the street. You are going to have very hot air on the street. It will hold the heat in the cooler. I have one in my car and when we cruise I just fill the tank with ice water and let it pump all the time. I have a meizere pump and its on a switch. You will eventually warm the water though. For an all out street and some race you should go air to air. I am more race than street.

If you have a front mounted radiator to cool the water for street use, the air to water system will work just as well (or better) than an air to air system. the radiator should be mounted in front of everything just like an air to air intercooler.
