From what I read online for heat shrink tubing specs even the cheapest is good up to around 275 deg F. The highest I have seen anyone report temps is around 230 deg F on an engine, which is pretty hot for a glow motor head temp. Usually motors like the OS Hyper 50 run around at 200 - 220 deg F max. The temp will rise 10-20 degrees after it shuts down, but even at that its still below the 275 deg heat shrink spec.
