Have you had problems with this on the track? Seems like a lot of guys are reporting track sessions with tuned cars even on hot days without any limp issues...

Yes...I limped twice!
Unsure what track conditions were for others, or how hard their cars
Were driven, but with a PPK and MSB's, I was pushing it really hard, trail braking and the works, so it took me basically until the 3rd 20 minute session on lime rock to limp. Cooled off for an hour, limped again at the end of the last 20 minute session.

It's all my oil temp, if I could get a larger oil cooler, it wouldn't be an issue.

Thank you, sir! The car really did perform great - very happy with it on its first trip down to NJMP.
And thanks again for your exceptional instruction all day!!


By the way, I got a couple great pics of the car in action on the track (and of my fearless instructor sitting shotgun ; )

Awesome.

Did you happen to notice what your peak oil temps were?

The oil temps were no problem all day - they stayed in the mid-range as far as I could tell. (My instructor was keeping an eye on it while I was driving, so he may be able to confirm more specifically.) The air temperature was on the low side (a very pleasant 65-70 degrees), but I was pushing the engine pretty hard during my 3 track sessions.

Every time I glanced at the temp gauge there wasn't anything to worry about. It was never too far from the center of the range, although I wasn't focusing on the exact reading. The air was cool and crisp - about as friendly to cool running as it can be.

That probably helped immensely. I limped towards the end of the day once track and air tempo got hot and humid.
Oddly my temp gauge was fine... Or maybe the M sports radiator is truly needed.
Glad the track day was awesome!

Your temp gauge was fine when you limped?? (I thought you had an M Sport as well?)

It seems to me I read somewhere that part of the MPPK includes some sort of cooling upgrade too...
