Ran my 17.5 novak at 4.0 FDR this weekend and peaked it at 169F. Right on the edge of the recommended temperature novak suggested.

Well was playing around today to see how my Duo compared to my Novak (rubber TC). Was kinda hard to compare because the track was pretty green, but I started at 3.57 at about 100 degrees. Went to 3.33 and came off at I think 125.. so I went to 3.21 and still didn't thermal.. off at around 170.
