Hi All - almost new tyre time for my S2 Exige - 195/50 16 & 225/45 17's - leaning towards some sort of semi slick as I only intend to drive in the dry and hoping to play on track a little..
Would appreciate feedback from more experienced people re my conclusions so far -
Yoko AO48 LTS - recommended tyre, best for track, not so good in wet, expensive
Avon ZZR & Toyo 888 -- similar to above
Avon ZZS - coming soon in S2 Exige sizes....more road bias, but still semi slick and good on track
T1-R's - more road / wet friendly, less track focus, relatively cheap
Let me know your thoughts please ?

Last trackday at bedford i was seeing temps of 126-127 on track and i think i need a oil cooler.
I have had a temp gauge for a few years so i know the temps are accurate, So i have been looking at the possibilities
1) Air to Oil Cooler - Simple solution fairly easy to fit, apparently not that efficient (according to some people on seloc)
2) Mocal Oil to water cooler - I personally dislike the standard installation, it puts the oil cooler and pipes next to and behind the exhaust manifold which i do not think is ideal. Although it does put the cooler in the bypass which warms to oil quicker.
3) Rover KV6 oil cooler this involves reusing as rover KV6 oil cooler from a diesel it can be located in various locations as per pictures
I would like to know what real world experiences people have. and their opinions. I quite the like he KV6 as it can be neatly installed near to the oil filter. However in that location you don't get the benefit of warming the oil quicker.

I had the same problem as glitch here:
short story: coolant got really quick really hot (15sec to 115°C) and my coolant expansion tank exploded.
so I rerouted the circuit like glitch did and now it's better but not as good as expected. The main problem is that the oil temperature is constantly at about 100°C and if faster driven at 110°C. The heatermatrix is cold or slightly warm after 30min of driving.
I think problem is that only hot water flows through the oil cooler?
Do you have an idea what I could do?

I have just fitted one of these and the controller. I would have done a pic thread but i was under time pressure due to the sprinting next week.
I fitted the sensor in the head outlet flow. What can i say but it appears to be an excellent mod. You can set the target temp as you please in 5 degree increments.
I left it idling on the drive for ages. It never moved off 83 degrees. It also runs coolant round the engine with the fan on for 3 mins after switch off or 10 degrees below set point whichever is sooner.
If you do a few track days, seriously consider this. It took a bit of fitting but well worth it for the peace of mind.
