    Then that is good. Maybe you can try to adjust your ignition timing via distributor. Your VDO will need something like a device to set it I think unlike mine which is mechanically based. My temperature is also near to half, like maybe 40-45% all the time even when I'm driving fast at high rpm. Using stock half size radiator.

    That mean 40%-45% is normal.

    Yes. Should not be above 50%

    For mine it doesn't even climb at all even during traffic jam.

    Maybe your fan motor or radiator were not functioning well. Usually temperature will be stable.
    Mine one always maintain here

    Don't buy redsuns adjustable. After using not more than 2 years, I had to service it 2 times. Even after servicing the absorber, the ride is still very very bumpy and uncomfortable. At last, I replaced them with a better one. Also please take note, you are unable to adjust the stiffness/softness of the absorber on redsuns. You can only adjust the height and had to depend on the spring tension for the comfort of your ride.

    Better you keep your money first until such time you can buy a better adjustable. Be patients and keep your money until you can purchase a Tein if you ever want to have a comfortable and value for money (secondhand value + no need to worry about servicing) adjustable.

    no not saying it will climb (honestly doesnt matter if it climbs abit), but if u have more accurate gauges and try monitor the oil temps, assuming the car is all warmed up and has soaked up heat, you will definitely notice the oil gets abit hotter when idling away in a jam compared to cruising away...
    my case the on dash gauge too just goes to a certain point and sits there forever... but the oil temp gauges can show quite a dif.

    tldr: unless ur absolutely pushing your car to the limits, cruising temps are typically cooler than idling in jams

    Thanks for your info. Now I want to go for a new absorber with sport spring 1st, because mine one only 1.5, not a fast car, standard is enough...hahah

    Sometime motor fan is weak will cause temperature high when idling or running slow, this is caused by fan no enough power to speed up like normal when drive slow. Meanwhile, ride high speed at highway will maintaince the fan motor functioning

    Better that way. Don't waste money buying something you regret like how I regret using Cap Ayam things.

    what you want from ur wira ride (fast, main corner, long distance travel...etc, many factors, many butts feels) ? think for urself and decide to go for shock+spring or adjustable or fully stock.
    i let go comfort since start with coilovers.
