Oil temps will be remarkably consistent in these cars unless you get some big time work going at the track because the t-stat for oil cooler does not open until over 200!Oil viscosiy will really not control oil temp as much as Synthetic vs. Conventional but even then you are not likely to see a huge difference in temps.
Try o get that oil warm before you make your runs in AUTO X. Get to at least 150 w/ synthetic and 190+ w/ conventional.
