Why don't more teams run oil coolers in the mud? Surely it would get packed with mud but all the water would have to help it cool the oil/clutch better than not running one. Plus more oil capacity probably couldn't hurt.

Or maybe more than coolers, given the shortened length of the races, just a big-ass aux tank somewhere.

with slow conditions I don't think much air would pass by to aide in the cooling affect

More surface area=more cooling, so I would have to think that it would only help. Although if too much thick mud got packed around it I could see the cylinder and head being able to trap more heat, but I'd imagine those side effects to be negligible...
