You are right @luc, that I'm working on the premise that there is nothing wrong with my cooling system. I just can't find anything wrong with it. It appears to working as intended. T-stat is opening, no blockage on the condenser, it cools good around town, engine runs great, etc. Maybe the radiator is plugged but it would have to be significant, like30+%. It's brand new and hence not likely.It’s not normal for your car to get that hot so fast. Key words here is so fast
Obviously adding airflow through the radiator will help but you’re treating the symptom, not the issue
In a simple term, you are putting more heat load through the cooling system that it can handle
Is your problem with an abnormal heat load and a normal cooling system or a normal heat load but an abnormal cooling system ?
Obviously the end result in the same but the diagnosis and cure is not
The Forum experience appears to be that the A10 overheats faster than M6 tranny. Forum member Tundra overheated his A10 GT PP1 on his 1st event as well. Engine, Tranny, and Diff. So maybe its just the sustained high rpm from the Auto that is adding the heat load and lack of airflow through the radiator, combination.
After I make these airflow mods and run again in Nov, I will have more data to help evaluate the situation. But at the moment, I am guessing a bit ... for sure.. Cheers.
