26 C that about as cool as it ever gets where I race ?? maybe you mean 36 C ? my standard narrow original copper S4 radiator was good for racing with 180 hp in over 40C with a three row core.... just. Unfortunately we are not allowed alloy radiators in my historic production sports car class so use a S3 wide one now which gets more headroom in 40 C conditions, this was actually standard in S4's delivered in hot climate countries such as Australia.

Hi Rohan,

At 26°C it was running fine on my chum's S2 in S France (it was only just that warm last time I went to South Australia...April 2017...in fact it rained most of the time!!). The other "FatBoy" cars were at the same temp.
