Default Re: Any Northeast Trackers?

Per the manual ...

Quote:
The general operating temperature lies between 175F/80C and 250F/120C. During high-performance driving, do not exceed a maximum value of 300F/150C.
So yeah, 240 is absolutely nothing to worry about. If you're concerned at 250F+, just take a cool down lap, the stock cooling system is pretty damn effective and will drop temps very quickly while moving.

Is that referring to oil temps or coolant temps?
