Just Took the 335 Through the Desert!

Hey guys,
I just got back from Vegas.
I just wanted to let you guys know about how well the car did in the 103 degree heat in the desert.

I'm running the JB3 now with the map switching, and I tried them all out during the drive. I have the switch in my glove compartment so I can easily switch from map to map when driving.
I mainly had it on the high boost map until I hit some light traffic.
When I was passing people, I needed to pass and then get back into the lane that I was initially in, so I felt that the low boost map was perfect for that--not too much boost, but enough to get me around the slow pokes.

My oil temps never got above 250 and was around 240 most of the time.
In the middle of the trip, I looked up the water temps just to make sure and they were perfect. The water temps were 100 to 103 when cruising and about 94-96 when WOT.

We made it from Pasadena to Mandalay Bay with one stop for gas at Baker in 3 hours and 12 minutes.
