In my experience no, but I do see people out there claiming they have V8 Vairs with rear radiators that work for them. I also find people who claim their 18" rims and tires don't rub on their lowed cars but the cuts I see in the sidewalls says otherwise. ::-):

I can't rip down the freeway at 80 MPH when it's 110F outside for more than 8 miles of so before the heat soak catches up and I have to slow down. I don't drive my V8 that way so it works for me. Never had the radiator puke on me but I know it could happen if I was not paying attention. Lots of old muscle cars puke when they arrive at the car show and shut down their big blocks but not mine.
