The thermostat starts to open at 83C and by 88C is fully open. The needle should therefore "most of the time" be on 88C.
However... on the Phase 1 cars (with "80" on the temp' gauge), "80" is actually "90" so those will run at "78" on the dial. The Phase 2 cars (with "90" on the temp' gauge) is the same thing but with 90 where the 80 was... so they read correctly.
92 is too hot. That's the temperature that the fan comes in.. so if your dial is showing 92 then it could be a shot rad' or water pump problem.. since "92" would suggest that the fan is running and is the only thing keeping the car from over-heating. Not good.
No bullets for Chaingun..
