I was also experiencing wildly fluctuating temps (85C right up to 120C) before using the appropriate parts for the tropical climate. After the upgrade, temp remains around 85C to 90C in ANY conditions. IMHO, with a proper cooling system, temp
fluctuations should be kept to a minimum.
what upgrades were they? nowadays, temps in some parts of the US are tropical specially in the summer where we can get 100F+. that is hotter than outside temps in many tropical locations. i believe that these cars were engineered for places like Stuttgart where summer highs are in the 70's. i am aware that there are components that can be replaced with tropical versions - the viscous fan clutch for one. was that one of the components?
