What oil temp

Do you guys consider it safe to gun it? It takes forever to actually reach 100, staying at 90 for what seems like an age.

I do tend to wait for it to hit 100 before I smash the taco, but is this ok to do at 90?

I think the interactive rev limiter moves to max rpm well before it even gets to 90?

Mine usually sits around 95-100 on the street but I will smash the taco once it's about 85. I'll still get proper into it though when a little cooler, but not smash it completely till at least 85

im the same, but in all honesty i think these cars can handle a thrashing at whatever temperature... its not like we have turbos that need to warm up...

I think once the rev limiter has moved to max, the car is telling you it is ready.
If the oil temp was too low, I doubt the rev limiter would go to max.
