Road Course + Tuned = ??

Anybody here consistently roadcourse track + tuned?

Ill be heading to Buttonwillow on 2/28-29 weekend for a 2 day track event. Last time I went all stock now I unleashed bunch of power and worried if itll overheat. Ill probably bring my laptop to detune it , if it does overheat.

BM3 "Stage 2"
factory oil cooler (hot weather pack)
temps will be 70-75

thank you

Good question. If it overheats could switch to MPSSK tune or stage one. Let me know how it turns out though!

I have been running mine tuned on stage 1 for many track days without issues even on the real hot days.

Should be fine as long as you have an upgraded FMIC to keep your IATs low. If you're worried about oil temp put the heat on, most tracks require windows open so I do that for some extra cooling performance.

I'll be honest, a friend's RS blew up on track and it was stock. I love the car but I can definitely see how that might be a problem.
