question about my leaking radiator

So, my truck is waiting on radiator #2 to show. I've noticed it seems to leak much worse when its driven hard than not. Any clue why?

Excessive cooling system pressure from leaking headgaskets?

Has the truck ever had thermostats? There is a new TSB regarding thermostat replacement if the radiator leaks.

no, its not had one, and thats being addressed when the new rad gets here. I thought the same thing about the HG's but i checked the truck myself. she said "the coolant resevior is empty" the coolant was at the bottom of the two cold fill lines and she's just retarded. so i feel better. its leaked about an inch in 2 weeks and almost 1500 miles.
