    Air and engine temp

    Is the engine temp affected by the air temp,can you drive harder during evening and night races,with
    out the engine starting to over heat?reson I ask is just doing an endurance race at bathhurst and was having to short shift to stop the engine overheating,then once the night came I noticed that I could hold the revs for longer without any over heating.

    Yes. Engine, brake and tire temperatures are affected by ambient/track temperature.

    Yes it's available on those cars that have a MOTEC display and also for the other cars at the regular cockpit dash instruments.

    There's no HUD indicator for this unfortunately.

    That happens to me regularly then! I thought the cars needed more windage!! I wish I was a tiny little virtual race driver with a colourful helmet on, maybe I'd have a chance to read the realistic lcd temp gauges in the game!!!!!
    The lcd gauges are notoriously crap in sunlight in real life anyways, I don't know why I'm moaning!
