    Engine getting too hot?

    Hey,
    today I noticed at Spa in the Z4, that on my motec the engine temps been a little high. So I opened the radiotor a little bit. But it wasnt getting better. I drove with 100% radiotor and my temps still been around 110-120 °C. Tested on someother tracks with different cars aswell, same result. My engine never blew up, but smoke was coming out of it. Maybe its just a display bug, but its not cool if you cant see your real temps...
    I'm sorry for my bad english...

    Display is correct, the smoke could be a bug. 110-120c is ok I think, perhaps shift up earlier.

    110-120 will cause engine damage after a few laps, it sounds like a setup loading bug (different car setup being loaded for whatever car you choose). Have you tried again after rebooting?

    Is this 110-120C water or oil temperature?

    Both go into this area. Oil a little more than water

    Oil I wouldn't worry so much about, but water going that high is definitely a problem.

    IRL, would running with, let say, 50c compared to 98c water temp change something performance wise or no?

    Depends on the car and oil used. 50C sounds a bit low for racing machinery (and not high for road cars either) and could be considered "cold", oil not up to temp yet and causing extra wear and tear to the engine. A lot of engines perform better at closer to 90-100 C.

    For the Z4, you can always run with radiator completely closed. Engine will never blew up.

    Does engine wear due to overheating cause speed loss in Pcars or does it only increase the chance of blown engine?
