FD oil temps on track??

What are considered the upper limit to oil temps on the track?? I was hitting about 230 yesterday, which is my first track day with a temp gauge. It looks as though I've managed to keep the coolent temps down finally only hitting about 95C.

It depends on where you're measuring. In the pan and Mazdaspeed says 250F is the limit, after the cooler under the oil filter and you'll need it to be lower, around 240F.

I know it's not an FC, but I believe the oil flow is the same:

^Thanks. I saw where Mazdaspeed said 250F at the pan, but really wanted to know at the oil filter, guess I should have stated that. So if 240F is the limit then I should be fine.
