True. Unfortunately, with an ambient temperature of uner 70, my coolant dud not overheat. It reached as high as 110, but that was it. I love the car, I really do. And I was afraid it would be too cool out. it was.

SuperBee/Vahid, so you think the issue has to do with turbulence caused by the nose? Why wouldn't LP570s being having this same cooling problem? Don't they share the same nose only a different paint scheme?

Here's another video. As I posted up on FB:
From Sunday’s session at Monticello Motor Club’s track. Obviously, my skills need a great deal of improvement. However, I OWNED the long straight, and owned it for the entire day. GT2’s, GT3’s, 430’s, 458’s, Gallardo’s, and anyone else who dared; I devoured them whole. Even giving up a lead coming out of the 90 degree turn 10, my car has so much pulling power, in every gear (especially in Corsa), that it’s just faster, faster, faster, until the thrill of speed exceeds the fear of death. (Hunter Thompson)

Truth is, it is a very fast straight, but, many drivers will either not push it to the limit, or they will let off a bit. They get nervous half-way down the straight because of the right sweep corner (or, perhaps they don’t trust their car?). At this point, I’m hitting over 150 mph, and still accelerating, onto and through the first and second brake markers. By the time I hit the brakes, I’ve reached around 165 mph, before I have to rapidly brake and downshift for the uphill esses. That creates an enormous amount of weight transference (both side-to-side, as well as front-to-rear). Of course, the blind cornering just adds to the exhilaration.

In the video, you’ll see the brake markers on the left (6-1), and then the blind uphill esses. Quick, smooth, reflexes are required, but…it helps immensely if, like me, you memorize those turns and trust your instincts. Like the famous Cristiano Matta quote says, “nobody has three balls, but some people have two very good ones.”

Weird, because it's in quicktime format, but...you're right. So, watch from your desktop, or, I can email them to you if you send me your email address.

I will be in my office shortly, which is right next to my living room, sorry I was to lazy to get up icon_mrgreen.gif

Very cool, looks like you had a great time, the car performed very well and didn't overheat and most importantly you kicked some 458 ass icon_mrgreen.gif

Here's the latest. Because the updated radiators did not work as hoped when they installed them in Vahid's STS, I believe that they may have gone back to the drawing board. In the meantime, because of false triggering of the emissions control warning light caused by the new thermostat, Lamborghini this week, re-installed my old thermostat.
So, the problem has not been addressed.
