Yes, I've been running it for a few months now. No obvious effects, positive or negative, but it was not designed to lower coolant temps, but to prevent localised boiling in hot spots in the engine as the boiling point is way higher at 180C.

Some interesting info here: Power Cool 180° - Waterless Coolant for Performance Cars

Seems to have quite a few benefits. Are there any manufacturers using this type of coolant in stock cars?

I've been using it, pleased with the results. My main concern was pressure in the cooling system, now I have none. Came back off a hard run, oil temp 102degrees C. Coolant gauge the same as before using water. And promptly removed the rad cap, no expansion at all and no pressure on any hoses.

I didn't, looked into it, and under extreme conditions the temperatures need to be higher than even those seen in malfunctioning engines and in vehicles in which the engine has been overloaded for an extended period of time.

Did you know ethylene glycol (antifreeze) has a flash point of 111 degrees C (232 F) in closed cup tests? I didn't!!

Brake fluid is bad as well, really any car on track should only have water it, no race car or bike has antifreeze.
