Well as the title says, I am researching radatior mounting location. I seem to see a lot in the center behind the driver standing vertical or with a slight tilt. What I reall am looking for is how many people put them in the front fire wall under the dash? Looking for your opinions lets here them

You'll have more space for a larger radiator, and have more airflow between and behind the riders head.

The radiator will also be less suceptible to damage from rocks, or clogging up from mud if racing.

Plus you can have much shorter coolant hoses.

I used to work for a corr/poorest team and when the prolights had the radiator in the front it seamed that we were always fighting cooling problems and damage. I agree with mounting it behind the driver. It only seems obvious

Ya post up some pics. Are these both desert rigs or short course? Any problems with damage from flying debris? Seems like there is enough stuff in front if it to keep thins out of the it.

Agreed. I first had my rad mounted up front in the stock location but this limited radiator size so I mounted a larger radiator high towards the rear of the car. Works great now and no cooling issues.

depending on the car, the biggest issue i had with rhinos was getting the oil cooler off the radiator. my yellow car had a rear mounted radiator mounted at rear deck/top of the bedside height. i always ran stock radiators, after a few years of misdiagnosing problems chris at benchmark found the problem. it wasnt the cooling system. but theres nothing wrong with going to a bigger radiator either.
