    Oil Temperatures peaked at 273* at Gingerman in modest ambient temperatures, So I've opened up the Front grille to provivide more airflow over the Setrab 948 Cooler:

    Also, I've been seeing AutoBlip issues, likely due to vibration causing issues with the wire taps. So I stripped the harness and solder spliced connections:

    Capaldi was (is?) selling a Setrab 960 (!) from the 350S program...I may invest in the future...

    I installed the 960 on my car, Ran it for two 9 Hour Endurance races on my 5.2.
    Can get them straight from Setrab.

    Also you will continue to have problems with the Auto Blip until you upgrade for the Unit from http://www.xineering.com/dbw.html

    A bit more than the AB. Has anyone here used one?

    I for one haven’t had issues with my autoblip. Looks like a different brand doing the same thing.

    I have used both, After having issues with my AutoBlip I went to look for a better unit.

    The Xineering Unit actual creates its own signal instead of trying to use the oem pedals signal.

    The Auto Blip works fine for a while but once your Throttle Body wears out it will start to have issues.
    I have had issues on multiple cars with the Auto Blip.

    After Installing the Xineering Unit all the problems went away on the Same cars!

    Sounds encouraging.

    How do you interface with the box? The AB has knobs and a button or two. This unit does not appear to have either.

    Thanks.

    It's programmed using an Android tablet, or a soon to be released PC USB connection.

    Correct, I have over 150 hours of testing on the unit over two cars.
    Both had issues with the AutoBlip systems that were installed before.

    Hey Nick - are you running fender/wheel liners on the race car? Any concerns with debris hitting the trans oil cooler?

    Yes, running the liners for that reason, plus brake pipes. FP350S runs them too...

    That's what I thought. Working on some fender vents and wasn't too keen on removing. Will have to work on alternative venting. Maybe just cutting them where the vents are located.

    Side note, any update on the FP350S steering rack and ABS module?

    I haven't tried the Steering Rack. ABS is not Plug and Play, even with wiring connecter switch. Still a work in progress, but based on what I've seen, I wouldn't recommend it on anything other than a dedicated race car without Magneride.

    Update on the FP350S ABS module, from what I've seen so far:

    It will not work with Magneride.
    It disables Mode selection and will not allow Steering mode changes, and will turn Advance Track off.
    It also also lights up the cluster with multiple warnings.
    Finally wheel speed, brake force and steering angle position data is not compatible with AIM or RaceLogic Data acquisition systems.
