If you can, try to get a baseline in more ideal conditions, as james said there's pretty much no way your gonna be under 200 with those conditions. If you have a setup that runs 170-180 when its more ideal, then its not such a big issue if you get over 200 when the conditions get hot.
Listen to Hammy... He knows what is up

Thank you for all the good answers! Looks like Mike is right. Something inside is not straight. I get an exchange motor on saturday

I think the dots are for balancing purposes because i gone through a few motors and every a rotor that came with one motor that was 12.5 had a different dot code to another rotor that came with another motor that was 12.5.
Measure them with callipers?

Got my exchange motor yesterday. My car is back to a normal noise level now = gears only. Unfortunately there were no differences in laptimes. Tenperature seems a bit lower though...

I found it to be very fast with my RS setup. It does need allot of timing to get it to rip tho.

I ran boosted sonic 17.5. Very smooth, not too much rip, not too little.

Same here. They are pigs in boosted until you really throw an assload of timing at it, then they start to move. Fortunately, they can take it.
