    Oil temperature question

    hi guys

    I have a question for the oil temperature. what is the maximum temp to drive without overheat in Celsius? because I find quite odd that the cars at 75% of opened radiator still manages to get over 100C even on long straigts

    thanks in advance

    100 degrees centigrade would be the minimum to aim for to avoid water build up in the oil.

    Google suggests 150 c max.
    Cockpit view. 32 inch distance to 58 inch 4k HDR TV. Proper fov, 78. World movement 0, g effect 30, all other camera movement, 0. Fanatec csw2.5, v3 pedals, fanatec shifter. Currently play 90-120/100 AI. 10-20 lap quick races, some tt. Decent hifi, big speakers. Home made rig. Sparco grid Q racing seat.

    I think that the threshold in game is around 120C, above that the engine will begin to take some damage

    I am definitely not an expert on oil. The 150 c figure was in a google result I found for synthetic oil.

    TBH I assume my engine damage is usually the result of poor down shifts, missed gears, and on some cars high boost. I usually race with all HUD elements off so I may have missed high temp causing damage.

    I think if you don't want to wear your engine out too quickly you want your oil temp to stay between 95C and 100C, maybe 105C. Iirc 115C is the limit where the HUD already shows a few % engine damage. Might differ between racing classes, I don't know to be fair.

    well, for example, in GT3(I use the Aston Martin) the car gets at around 108C in slow to medium speed tracks like Hockenheim or Nurburgring. while in Monza, it barely passes the 100C
    for the LMP1, it's about the same as the GT3 on monza. so, I guess that I can go up to 110C without almost any problem. just maybe a little bit loss of top speed. all of these are with the default 75% radiator opening. I know that the water temperature should not exceed 95-97C but there's no info on the water temp in the HUD unfortunately

    most cars will have the water temp on the MoTec display. May need to cycle pages.

    You can aim much higher than that (btw i'm speaking of GT3 cars) and close the radiator a bit ! Personally i've hit 110 a few times with road cars, it's not uncommon to reach 120 and more on track

    I know, but I air on the side of caution since i tend to run more endurance races. I'll close the radiator more for short sprint races and online lobbies.
