generally speaking, YES, running in grass will cause a motor to run hotter.

it will cause the clutch to slip a bit. more so on a stadium truck, but to a lesser extent on monsters, yes

also very rarely can you keep the same settings from one day to the next. you can come close, but to keep the same motor temp some minor adjustments should be made.
