Last weekend I went along with a group of motorcycles on a 200 mile drive through the twisty back roads of south Alabama. This was the first long drive and the first drive on twisty roads at speeds of up to 75 MPH. It was exhilarating to say the least but the car handled great and took the curves at speed right along with the bikes. Temperatures were in the mid 90's but I felt no heat from the engine. The drive shaft tunnel felt warm from, I assume, transmitted engine heat and heat from the driveshaft bearings. I'm looking forward to another run like that, maybe in the fall.
