k1973 Very nice build.

bbaxter51 Looking for anything specific? Since it was featured in issue 54 of CRAWL Magazine, it's been used for it's intended purpose. It's not getting beat on for the sake of a beating but my brother doesn't back off a line if it may result in a scratch. The front 60 has been upgraded to Yukon Chromo shafts with Overson joints.





It even rescued these dipshits trying to launch a boat, in the rain, on a dirt ramp.

bbaxter51 My brother has been wheeling the piss outta this rig for the past year. It's been no show queen that's for sure. Also got a call earlier this year that anyone here can appreciate. Break out the armorall, it's time for the ball, princess! Should be in the next issue!

russellmn I was lucky enough to ride in this Saturday after lunch since Mackenzie decided she'd rather nap than wheel...
Was super impressed, nothing upset this rig, extremely stable and poised. One thing I noticed quickly was, there is NO "pop, rattle, and bang" on this rig unlike most every other rig I've built, driven, or rode in. Everything's tight and solid.
Very nice build Brad, Brent, and Geoff (and whoever else was involved in it).

Rod, that was awfully nice of you...

ky scrambled I didnt put a number on my rig because I wanted him to have a chance. He can thank me later.

bbaxter51 This past weekend we went up to the 10th Annual Crawl 4 Cure event to raise money for MS in Northern MN. Over 450 people were there and raised 125k dollars. Every year they have a "best engineered rig" award and this year it was a "peoples choice" so every rig that came to wheel got a number and at the event, you wrote down and voted for the rig you thought deserved it. Brads Super Willys drew a crowd every time we stopped, it was insane, he was like a celebrity there. There were comp rigs, Tim Cameron's old "Fat Girl", 3 CRAWL feature rigs; this place was stacked with bad ass off road iron. Brad got to take the proud walk this year with people loosing their minds cheering for him! Super proud.

100 over 200. 18" lowers and 16" uppers. It rides really nice and is super stable.

I've done this on several radiators with no issues. I run a 24 x 19 x 3 griffin dual pass radiator with a Volvo 740 fan (similar to the taurus fan) and have no trouble keeping a 600hp ls3 cool.. Stays at 195 no matter what I do to it

The svt fans were never actually installed and it has a SPAL 16" fan on it the problem is capacity with only a 24" x 19" x 2.25" and it being a single pass aluminum radiator it just doesn't have the cooling ability.

New plan is to try a 28" x 19" x 2.25" Triple Pass from Northern Radiator with the same 16" Spal fan.

jesimmers Incredible build! Can only imagine wheeling this thing

ROXROES My LS1 would get close to 230 on 80-90 degree days after beating on it for a few minutes. Was running a jegs dual pass with a Taurus fan. Think it was about 24x19. My fan is computer controlled for low speed on at 210 and off at 200. I would typically override it into high when doing obstacles.

New rad is a custom PRC 3" thick dual pass with the high output spal 16" fan with a full shroud. So I'm expecting greatness.
06-03-2014 11:37 AM
chris demartini These engines are designed to run 210 to 220 or so, but 230 is a little on the warm side. Try a dual pass radiator 22-24" x 19", with a full shroud and a bigger single Spal fan. I had 24x19 dual pass with a 16" Spal on my last buggy with an LQ4 and it never got over 220. Wasn't much room around that engine either.

Fans are out of Focus SVT running with a shroud. Not sure on the on/off temps since they're run from the ECM. With the hood off it runs about 205-210 but was still climbing to 230 on steep long climbs at Harlan but comes back down to 210 once we would stop and idle for a couple min.

It's a TruKool single pass alum from speedway. It worked good on the small block that was in there before and rumors were that LS motors run cooler so my brother decided to kept it and try it out.

MNtal So the plan as of now is to either add larger tanks to the Radiator or add a large radiator all together probably a triple pass to get the thing to cool better.

Any recomendations from the lS Guru's as to what they are running to keep there rigs cool?
