My 93 has only gone over half way once or twice. I noticed that if I'm at either extreme on the rpm gauge, she heats up. If you were only doing 5 to 10 mph in a parking lot, you're rpms were prolly really low but the throttles engaged. I know when I kept my rpms really low, like in stop-n-go traffic, the heat gauge would go up pretty quick. When it opened up into a good stretch of road, I'd keep the rpms in the middle range regardless of what gear I was in. She'd get some air and cool down just as quick. The way I rode was how I balanced and maintained the engine temp, I just took that as part of the technique involved. That's what you gotta do with a helicopter too, I just transferred it. If you practice hover techniques for too long and don't take a trip around the pattern every so often, she'll overheat big time.
