I have the powerboomb header and it gets super hot. I just ignore my nerve endings , j/k. I dont have a heat shield on it or anything, I just either wear either my riding boots, an extra long pair of socks, or just not set my leg so close to it. I am positive that a few people are using that heat tape. I read somewhere (on here or thumpertalk) where they are using it. Sorry I don't have any more info for ya.
