correct, the pump is geared (through pulley ratio's) to work properly at low RPM. there are numerous reports of factory plastic reservoirs failing due to heat in cars used for track day/club events and these guys only do a handfull of laps at a timePretty sure it also heats up at high RPM, because the pump is smashing the fluid through the circuit like no tomorrow... even just the pump friction at 5000 engine rpm will produce a hell of a lot of heat in that fluid, which isn't good for plastic tanks, rubber lines and o rings..
