It was fine in competition but on the road, I could never get the oil temperature high enough - it hit the water temperature and only increased when I drove really hard. This may be linked to the fact that my cooling might be too efficient - hence the thought about blanking part of the rad in cooler weather.

In Canada a friend of mine, and everyone else, used to plug his car's sump heater into the mains (line) when they got home in -40?C and maybe there was one in the radiator too.
