You are in the wrong state to be competing for this.

I have had readings of 130+ degrees on my EVIC. That's with an actual air temp of about 118-120, and with the car sitting in direct sun for several hours.

I haven't ever seen mine above 122, but when mine gets super hot it quits working and just gets stuck. Also, mine always reads really high, so if it's 105 outside it will say at least 115.

But yeah, you're in the wrong state to start this pissing contest. :)

125 in July in the afternoon, I took a laser thermometer and pointed it at the hood and it read 167.
Do that to the top of your dash. My neighbor does hot weather testing for VW and he says the front edge of your dash can hit 270 (yes, 270 fahrenheit) if you leave it parked facing the sun.

I've had mine read in the 120s, but mine always reads off for some reason.

The hottest days here... 115-120 temps (with 10% humidity)... is about the same level of misery as 105 with 90% humidity.

I'll take the dry heat please.

Plus, in the spring and fall, 80 degrees with the same 10% humidty.. it's absolutely PERFECT!

I say forget about being literal heat. Interior heat has never made anyone any faster. Lets try this again. Who has the hottest performance package is my question?

I'm going to Vegas Monday, I'll be glad to cool off...

North FL Summers, 95-100* 90+% humidity. You walk outside and you sweat instantaneously.

My parents used to live in Houston, and that's a whole different kind of misery. On a dry day here you can have humidity of 3%. When it's dry, anything below about 10% humidity, you could go play a round of golf a 3 pm when it's 110 degrees and when you're done you won't be sweaty. The water just evaporates out of you. Your skin is salty, but not wet.

In Houston, it's so humid that it could be 75 degrees and you sweat like a maniac. It's even like that indoors, so if you even rest your arm on a piece of paper it will stick to you.

The worst thing about Houston - and other humid places - is that potato chips get soggy. That's just wrong on so many levels. In the desert you could leave a bowl of potato chips on the counter for a week and they'll be fine all week. You can keep them in the open bag just with the top just rolled up in the pantry for months and they're fine. But you open a bag of chips in a swamp like Houston and it's ruined within minutes.

So yes, we desert dwellers certainly understand our swamp brethrens' suffering. :)
