This guy makes a good point. At speed i would hope my massive 3 core Mishimoto radiator is doing it's job. Venting the engine bay shouldn't be the main solution (or any solution) to overheating. But venting turbo heat at either a standstill, or say slowly moving in a paddock or even traffic for that matter.

That's just my thought process behind it anyway...

Was that on course temps, or in grid, or an average of both?
