Nice evening here in North Florida.. mid 70* ( 23-25C) and being a sat night, it was time for this OLD man to spank some Ricers.. and Mustangs!!

Bottle is full.. Plugs are changed..fresh oil .. I am OFF to the 'engagements'!

Getting to the place of the meeting, I am buzzing on the interstate at 85-90 MPH, and I look at the gages.. WTF!! Pegged out on HOT!!

Yep.. the t-stat didnt open, and I over heated!! I mean boiling the oil hot!! Well, because I didnt do the little things... like change the coolant and the thermostat like I should have ( 06 with 44000 Miles), now I am back in the garage with oil in the water and a bad head gasket... not to mention the T-Stat!!

Nothing in the oil.. the plugs are good, compression went to shit from the heat. SOOoo... I am going to up grade my TPR2 to the 2r sooner than I thought.. and check the rest of the engine..

KEEP UP on the maintenance!! It will catch you and bite you on the ASS!!
Just me.................................

Grow up and take it to the track before you kill someone...................

Yea gages only work if you look at them. Wondering if anyone makes some led's, as something like they use for a shift indicator, so the lights are right in your face....green..then yellow....then red....then maybe even a flashing red....when you need to shut it down like RIGHT NOW! Just a thought?

Fantastic. Perfectly good, good teperature and pressure readings, light during the day, amber light at night is perfect.

Not had an issue with them at all! Very quick to react as well. Probably find that the problems people have had with them is from mounting the sensors in the wrong place.

Meh. I love a good traffic light GP, me. No one said you can't race up to the limit... and then there's the twisties. If there's a single person on here that can hand on heart say they haven't had a run with another driver through a back-road or off a set of lights, I'd be VERY surprised. In fact, I'd hasten to add your tuning market would be a hell of a lot smaller if they didn't. In a roundabout way, you're practically encouraging it... ;)

Half the time it's why I like using the MINI. No one ever tries it on when I'm in the Z...

Why does he need to when he has such an epic driver?

Just to add on this, theres having a little fun off the lights, although can still be chsrged with racing even if it is up to the limit in the UK. Just for reference.

I think Jan was more talking about going to organised street races which IMO is pretty chavvy even in the UK. Go somewhere proper and do it where there are run offs, a first aid team and fire equipment.
