Does anyone know of a, or has used a lower temp thermostat for the R? I would imagine there was one for motorsports.

Not sure why the 'lower t-stat' idea is still tossed around. Back in the 60's with big blocks and low engine speeds lower temp t-stats served a purpose. Here in the modern age with all the sensitive electronics running a lower temp t-stat will do nothing but increase warm up time and fuel consumption. If you are worried about cooling, install a better radiator and oil cooler.
