    Sorry guys for left early this race but my engine was farting in the 4th lap :D
    Never happened the same before with M6..water temp 92 celsius, thats ok...maybe downshifting too quickly.
    Next time I must to be more careful!
    Really sorry!
    And I apoligize for hit someone (cant see his real (server) name here in the list) in the T1...I wanted let the car go straight because I missed the brake point but unfortunately You were there. Sorry mate!

    That happens quite easily when you use your engine as a brake. Happened to me a week ago at Zolder.
    As far as the temperatures go, you only need to watch the oil, which should go up to 110-120 celsius.
    I have been running mostly 50% tape on the radiator and 100% tape on the brakes.

    My tires were cold from the start to the end, I am not sure what I need to change in the setup... I normally leave default, I changed the pressure to almost the lowest values... but it was not really effective... :unsure:

    As it is no secret at this point, lowest tire pressures always give more grip due to increased contact patch.
    That is a strange problem since this is one of the very few tracks i have to watch out for overheating the tires.
    What you can do on the setup side is increase toe angles.
