: After several driver school events, some observations about the Mcoupe in high performance situations:
When I took mine to Thunderhill (Willows, CA), I noticed the oil temp was pretty high (just at 260), did you observe this as well? I also noticed a tapping noise (valve noise, lack of oil - though I had added a quart). Did you add any extra oil for the track?
I do agree, the Dunlops to protest a lot when driven hard. Also I was surprised to find the CG of the M Coupe to be pretty high off the ground. Of course I am comparing this to my 91 M100 Lotus Elan, which I took the the track as well. It felt a lot more planted to the road.
