Is that something specific to the V2, due to it's sizeable mass, or is that just a general precaution that the V1s could benefit from, as well?
Really, it's something any car with rotors near the factory tie-rod ends can benefit. It never hurts to be too careful. Getting tie-rod ends replaced because of heat exposure from track use probably wouldn't be covered under warranty. Thus it's wise to protect them...
