Why prone to overheating?
#1
I keep reading threads about overheating and blown HG's, so it seems it's just "the thing" to repeatedly fix on the XUD's.

But why ?
What makes the engines prone to overheating?
Is it a build up of crud in the water galleries that you cannot clean out?
Pump worn or over speed so cavitation?
The air lock issue when filling & air getting in somehow over time?

Anyone tried Evans coolants ? Supposed to be good for especially localized heat spots (I haven't I haven't had a problem with this)

Just not looking forward to modifying then having to keep doing HG's or a special eye on temps.
I won't be able to run a constant flow cockpit heater/radiator either, so more concerning (but have read about flow restrictions to overcome that).
