    IMO that's asking for trouble... Why not leave it at home?

    I would not expose it to that type of heat especially for that long

    A quick look at the almanac shows avg. temps in Vegas in June to be 100 degrees. I wouldn't do it. The temp in the trunk is gonna be much higher than that if its direct sunlight. I'd also fear for the plastic in my Phantom. I don't know what its melting point is, but I'd be a concern for me to come back to a "wavy" looking phantom...
