Normal. Track cars go up to 275 or something like that.
Yes! And 210 is the normal operating temp. I have NEVER gone into limp mode from overheating. Personally, don't even know what that means
And have hit temps around 270-280 on super hot days at the track with 0 problems. Added the M24 oil cooler for piece of mind after 2 full track seasons, but this engine does run hot vs. others, but deals with and dissipates heat very well/quickly. Don't sweat it, pun intended, and enjoy the ride!
