I wouldn't really dwell much on it. If ED stated cooling mechanics is being reworked for all warbirds, all our current observations will become outdated soon anyway.

No big thing to fix. All other - more relevant - temperature readings seem to be pretty accurate.

Or am I missing a point here?
O btw i didnt sit for 1hour, i used time acceleration for this
I choose weight because weight is what we can measure easy, and it is correlated with mass.

My issue with cooling is that, i think that thermostatic valves are not modeled in spitfire, spitfire has extreme problems with holding up to minimum temps even at cruise power settings,where at high alt coolant temp goes down to 40C or even lower.
Another thing, that coolant temp is changing a little bit too fast (considering ~900kg engine is nice heat capacitor ) but this is only my impression, This conclusion come out from my observation of coolant doors actuators (P-51)(they are way to slow compare to temp changes during flight), so if this would be a porblem how hard would be to put improved faster actuators for coolant doors ? Just logically thinking.
