I'm currently still running in my 620R, although the foul weather this year has limited times when I can run the car. Those dry days free from salt have been bitterly cold. I've only managed about 350 miles so far, of which 100 miles was probably the journey home on collection. I've noticed I'm struggling to maintain coolant temp at anything over 40mph, I'm assuming the cold is too much for the cooling. This is limiting my driving as I obviously want to have all fluids good and hot.
I'm wondering if it is sensible to block up the radiator on the outside of the nose cone? I'm sure I've seen pics of Sevens on circuit with gaffer tape blocking the nose cone.
If it is a good idea, has anyone got any recommendations regarding techniques. I don't want to damage the finish on the mesh with tape that pulls either the paint or powder coat off.
Not sure if it's important, but I suspect the diligent members will ask, the fan kicks in and holds the temp when stationary etc, so I think the coolant circuit is working, the car is just over cooling in this cold temps.
Thanks in advance for the input.
