So over the past couple days, I had to drive from SoCal, to Vegas, down to Phoenix, and then back home to SoCal. While staying in Vegas, I decided to drive down to the Christmas Tree Pass between Searchlight and Laughlin. It ended up just being basically a dirt road. A few ruts, but nothing to test the cooler. But I did get some cool pics.







She did awesome on this round trip. Highest temp I saw was 228. And that was yesterday between Tonopah, AZ and Palm Desert, CA, ambient temp between 87-92 the whole way. Speed limit is 75 most of the way, and I was driving straight into 45mph winds with gusts over 65mph. Maintaining 75mph was a struggle with my high resistance factor. Engine was turning at 4000-5500 most of the way, and never dropped below 3500 except a couple times when slowing down to let a big rig over. Gas mileage was horrendous, but the tranny stayed cool.

Subarust,
You probably have to exit enhanced mobile view. Try scrolling to the bottom of the page. Or when you log in don't click ok, without reading the first pop up.

How'd the tranny do Temp wise?

Next week I'll be up in Sac and will need to go to Reno and back, so was going to record temps with the cooler installed.

This is no cooler installed right after a pretty good climb becides the climb I was behind traffic that can't make up thier mind if the want on or off the gas? I did smell something from the car like it was warm but it only got to 215 water temp with the ac on.

My car is 100 percent stock. It was bought may 4th 2016 and just turned 3100 miles
It did pretty well I was surprised most of the time I never know the car trailer was there. Except when the blind spot monitors would go off in gradual turns. I think the trailer being wired than the car it thought someone was right along side of us? But it did fine on the hills i even managed to pass some people in the passing areas of us50?

The highest I would let the engine spin was 4200 I left it in drive for the climbs and would use the paddle to hold a gear or two down hill. It's nice it holds a downshift even when you hit the brake the only time it will go back to drive is if you touch the accelerator

So rallyebourne have you been watching your temps? And at what temperature does it limit engine rpm? Also what temp would the max you let the transmission get? 250? 260? Before the fluid does damage to the cvt? My experience is even when you hold the gear in manual mode the temp seems to climb more than if you let the cvt pick the ratio?
