Ambitious that's for sure, but don't see it working for very long.

the frame gets pretty hot as it is used as a heat sink for the engine, make sure the vinyl can take the heat.

It should work. The frame gets warm, and while I don't have any track wrap on mine, I can't see it really peeling off for the most part unless you really do a shitty job or just hammer on it (say, at the track). A little bit of heat actually helps set the stuff, so I say try it out.
