LMAO. So what makes you a better person to believe than an Enigineer that has worked on bmw's for years, and someone that is currently using this set up with no ill effects. The tranny is cooled by the engine coolant. If his car isn't overheating, that means that the engine coolant isn't too hot, which means it can still effectively cool that transmission.
Vince only needed that secondary cool in certain instances on his RACE CAR. If a race car, going through the punishment and sustained stress of racing only needs extra cooling occasionally, then a regular street car should really be fine.
