The only thing I could see is getting ahold of some of those test strips based that they sell. They'll only show the peak temperatures of the calipers probably, but that should at least be indicative of the change. I doubt you're going to see 400 degre drops, but if you can keep the fluid from boiling that's better than any numbers anyone could ever give me anyways.
I appreciate your help, Kyle.
Alcon makes the strips you are referring to. Pads work in a certain temperature ranges, the data could help determine how much cooling you really need.
People haven't touched much on fluid, or they haven't listed the fluid brand when they posted that they need more cooling. There is so much variability between brands of fluid.
It makes sense to me to think there should be cooling to keep the pads at their operating temperature #1. I just see it as pointless to over cool race pads down to 200C (extreme case, definitely out of operating temp range) just to keep fluid from boiling... If you have to keep your pads from reaching the desired operating temperature to avoid fluid boiling, then you might need to change to a better fluid.
