Mein Auto: Jackwagon!
There really isn't a way. When the HG blew on the race car the first time, it failed, leaking air into the cooling system and causing the car to overheat on an already hot day. If I kept the revs below 4k, it was fine, when I pushed it, it overheated by the end of the third lap.

This time it was due to a bad manufacturing job and the HG blew between cylinders 5 & 6 and the car was running - literally - on 4 cylinders and had a terrible idle.
