Seems pretty good for base or RTR car/engines. Not sure about 270F and the WD-40 spray. That can take take out a filled crank filler IMO.

I agree regarding the WD-40... I suggest substituting "Silicon Friendly ARO" or something similar. I also suggest adding verbiage in there that one should tune for smoke / performance, not solely on 'Temp'. I would substitute an engine temparature range - say 210~260 - and state that temparature range depends upon manafacturer recommendations - Read the Manual...

I do like the idea of a cheat sheet! It's off to a good start, for sure. If it had some images of plugs - I.e. how to read a plug - on the flip side, that would add value as well.
