Very nice, it's ace when you're in that groove though and you just keep lapping round. I think one of my longer sessions was in France, did just over half an hour and it was only running out of fuel that caused me to come in :lol:

Car sounds like it's going well though, I'm similarly impressed with the water temp of mine on track - I've never seen it in the 90's and I was expecting higher after adding a chargecooler to hog some airflow at the front.

I assume both of you fine chaps are running the pro alloy triple pass rad? I see 95 ish deg C after a longer stint. .

I'd upload a video from the day, but it seems that I got the exposure settings very badly wrong and you can see the inside of my car really well, but the outside world is completely white, lol! ;)

Although, clearly you can get a nice shot of my AiM dashboard, which is very lovely, but not really the focus that the video was meant to have ;)

Hopefully I've now slid the slider the other direction and we'll be good for next time ;)

Mine's just the standard pro-alloy twin pass as far as I know... there's nothing to say they didn't put the wrong one in the box :lol:

My Elise (NA) ran a bit warmer, but that had the factory air/water oil exchanger in it rather than the air coolers at the front and that still ran pretty cool - would say low 90's at the end of a stint.

GoPro Spot meter is a godsend for this!

I've got the "Pro Alloy Full Aluminium Race Radiator" from Elise-Shop, I believe it's 45mm thick, but only single pass? Might be wrong, can't remember properly... It definitely does the job though! :thumbup:

I've got a GoPro Hero 8 Black - and clearly have no clue what the heck to do with it, lol... :roll:

Found out where the heck the spot meter option was hiding! That'll sort it - hurrah! 8-)

I think I must have a serious mental health issue that forces me to constantly modify my car, whilst trying to bankrupt myself... My car's running great right now, so I've obviously just ordered some FiveO Motorsport 450cc injectors. Of course I have, why not... :crazy: When they arrive I'll take another quick visit to RRR to get them to set everything up for me and then, no doubt, I'll find myself glued to the door of track-group who are just next door :/

Somebody. Help me! :lolno:
