Ok finally had some time to run some tests. The oil cooler on half doesn't seem to make a difference the oil temp remained pretty stable. However the water coolant was over-heating. 3/4 radiator flaps open solves the problem.

There's some sort of bug with the E-4 auto prop system - namely that by default it just doesn't work. Dis-engaging AUTO and adjusting the propeller angle manually a bit and then switching back to AUTO fixes it though... >/

start up should be in manual with prop set to 12 O'clock.

Keep this setting for warm-up, taxi, and for magneto check (not necessary in CLoD).

For take-off switch to automatic as you reach 2000 U/min.

Automatic control is not effective below 2000 U/min.

It maybe a bug in CloD that, "forces you from auto to manual, make prop adjustment, go back to manual" but if you do the above you won't have to worry about that.

But what do I know - I am sure you all can argue it out...

If you are in a hard climb and your airspeed drops below 250ish you need to open rads or you will overheat quickly. Using WEP will aggravate it more as will higher alt.
