I was told gear it until it comes off at about 150-160*after 5 mins. Anything more than that and you risk thermals and damaging the magnets which have a cure temp of around 175*.

It's not very likely that you will thermal with a 13.5 in a racing situation, unless you gear it so high that it is ridiculously slow out of the corners.
I have been running the 13.5 for months now and even when I tried to over-gear it the temp only increased about 8 degrees.
The oval tracks I run on usually require a 2.5 to 2.8 rollout. Based on the gears you suggested in your post, and if you have tires smaller that 2.2" you won't be overgeared.

Going to a 120 tooth spur will make it slower yet.
I have not raced at Allens so you need to find out a good roll-out at that track for 13.5.
I'm gonna guess you'll need a rollout around 2.60 - 2.75. That's just a guess though.
With your current gear selection [116-40] and a tire size around 2.2 your rollout is 2.38. That is pretty slow unless you are on a really small track.

I raced at Allen's a lot. You could start rollout at 2.60.

With a 2.20 dia tire and a 116 spur, you should run a 44 pinion. The car has to be free in the corner though.

Allen's is around 36x76.
