I'm convinced I need the cooler. I appreciate the OPs comments and review. I was just at California Speedway for an HPDE and ambient temps were in the high 90's to about 105 for most of the day. My oil temps about 10-15 mins into the sessions would climb to about just past middle mark between 210 and 300. That is the point where the idrive would display an excessive heat warning, at which point the DCT would delay shifts and revs would be limited. I tried another session running with the heater on but no luck. At 100+deg ambient temps and agressive driving the stock cooling capacity is being taxed and needs help. Funny someone else mentioned the iPhone overheating too. Mine would only last about 10mins before it shut down and needed to be cooled off.
