Better than i thought, but anything over 90 degrees outside the car has issues after 3-4 hot laps. Once the temp gets to 290, I feel the loss of power but no limp modes. At that point I just cruise threw the straights or take it easy for a couple minutes and pit. Once the temps drop a bit I can run a few more laps to end the session w/o any issues. I have yet to get a full blown limp mode, but then again whats the point in trying. The car has a retro-fitted oil cooler already. Ideal, no, able to still have some fun, absolutely.

I hung out with a few others from e90post, they didn't have any major issues. But they did have MT, and also were running in the beginner group.
