Damn...that's the most fun pinned! Only had it once in 101 temps at ORP- which has lots of shifting due to 17 turns and many elevation changes. Otherwise, this DCT has been flawless. This driver melts before the gearbox after 25min sessions...
All should be ok. Just pull up for a few laps or wait till next session. When it gets really hot you get the warning light in advance as was mentioned.
