The problem here is that context means everything.
My car would hit 70-80 deg most of the time and never see over 90deg on the road even open road spirited driving.
However on the track is a different story. The temps just skyrocket. 120 after 3 laps, 130 after 4-5 by 7 it could be 135.
Turns out now that i'm doing a rebuild the water galleries were chocka block with rust scale and the bearings were starting to wear! so the two combined compound to cause the excessive heat feedback loop. runing a 12 row cooler btw.
