how hot is too hot? My oil temp. will get to 300 on a 6 lap run or more. On a caution it will cool to about 260. Only does it on a heavy track. Water temp. runs at 190-200.

If it's a dry sump make sure the bypass regulator is ajusted right. If oil pressure is set really high, the oil temp will be higher.
