Camaro engine overheating

    I was driving around in the camaro trying to learn the swedish tracks, but after a couple of laps I kept getting "Your engine is overheating". Uhm... why? Was I driving too slow? :)

    Later in a race I also got "damage not repairable, race is over" all though I could continue to drive and even got a point.. :confused2:

    Couple of things
    1) Can't remember if you can adjust it, but check the radiator size setting in the car setup
    2) Check how you're downshifting, I'd suspect you're also shifting down too early and over-revving the engine.

    I'll check the first! Due to the RWD-"snap-around-when-braking-and-downshifting" behavior, I'm downshifting as late as possible, so I'll be amazed if thats the problem. :eat:

    its the most likely culprit. blip the throttle on your downshifts to stop the wheels locking. try to rev mactch when downshifting to keep the car feeling tight.
