Default Leaky Trackspeed radiator

This radiator came with my MSM. It was working amazing until last track event where I've discovered a small leak under a weld near the cap.

I've used my spare Godspeed to replace this as I'm selling the car and I don't need an NB radiator, so I never bothered fixing it. It also comes with an OEM fan from MSM. Use it or junk it - I don't care.

$300 cash, picked up from North Hollywood, CA or $350 shipped CONUS.

Arrow points to where the leak is coming from

Would have been nice if you had contacted me before posting this. Our current radiators carry a 2-year warranty against workmanship defects like this.

I'm not an original owner and didn't think warranty is transferrable. I have absolutely no idea who purchased this originally, or when.

Is it leaking from right at the corner or just on top a few MM from the edge?( I know your picture looks like its a few MM's away from the edge but I just want to confirm) Also is this an older generation TSE radiator that isn't a triple pass? (Not sure if TSE has always used a triple pass design) The picture of the radiator on TSE's website clearly shows welds 1/3 of the way down on the outside of the passenger side endtank and 2/3 the way down on the drivers side endtank segregating them for the triple pass.

I didn't know there were multiple versions of TSE radiators; I'm not sure what version it is. It's leaking (evaporating rather) from under the weld - you can't see the hole.
