Your muffler is probably twice your body temp so it is going to be real hot. Check your back plate on the bottom of your engine next time if you can leave your finger on it for 4 or more seconds your O.K. Oh and stop touching your muffler you'll get burnt.

It gets that way. Try what I said or you can go the expensive route and get a temp gun and check your engine that way. Something like this works well.

This is crank temp when I say 200 deg. It is the part right below the head with the smaller fins on it. The back plate is the part that is at the other end from the fan. On the very bottom of your heli. You should be able to touch it for at least 4 seconds with out moving your finger.

The threshold of pain.....

As a rule of thumb, the threshold of human pain is around 140 degrees.

They don't actually walk on hot coals. It simmers long enough to create a layer of ash thick enough to insulate the coals, so the actual temperature is lower as long as you walk smoothly and keep moving.

I did it in Hawaii.

I saw on tv that the coals are actually really cool on top and hot on the bottom. I don't think they are coals though.

Foo,
is my **** too hot
Your **** be hot!

Exhaust and muffler temp is much higher because it's post-combustion (**** hot). Areas not exposed to combustion gases (like back plates) are much cooler (**** be cool).

It's odd, but I do the exact same thing on full-size. Took out a Cessna 421 with factory-new engines (Continental 520 cu. in., 375HP) and broke it in for 15-20 hours. Right after landing, with less than 10 hours, the cylinders were so hot you couldn't touch them at all, like grabbing a soldering iron. After 15-20 hours, you could place your palm on them for 5 seconds or so.

Calibrated fingers...
