In Reply to: WHAT SHOULD OIL TEMP BE WHEN DRIVING HARD?? posted by ADAMK on September 04, 2001 at 13:27:01:

the lines as an SCCA instructor, I rarely see over 225.
I do not run race pads, so I do not drive at race pace.

Does you oil cooler need cleaning? Is the temp on the gauge correct? If you DID get to 255, go get some fresh oil put in, that stuff is cooked!
