I live in Phoenix AZ & regularly drive my 60 TR3A in temps of >110F both on
the highway & on city streets.   I do NOT have a problem with water temps.  I
also have a recored radiator, sans the crank hole, that is about 5-6 years
old.  I also use the largest electric fan I could fit controlled both
thermostatic & a manual switchs. I am running just water & antifreeze.

Several years go in Florida we put "water wetter" in my son's MBG and really
did not see any big difference.

not having been over the mid-eighties yet.
