What would be considered to cool It runs 180=185 on the track but sometimes when I start the a main its @ 170 .I always warm it up before hitting the track.The temp has been alittle cooler here this year on a average .Just wondered what the lower limit might be.

On average you will produce the most power right around 200 degree's . Your main concern before racing though , is your oil temp . If your warming your engine up to 170-180 before you race , then your oil temp should be in the same range and you should be safe .
