    After reading the current 2015 Solo rules it appears you could relocate a front mount radiator to the rear as long as you do not add new or additional openings in the exterior bodywork. I'm a correct? Oh this question relates to the Prepared classes not Modified.

    Thanks

    Correct. There have been/are several cars with rear mounted radiator. Don't worry about ducting air to it from the outside, you should be able to get enough flow with just an electric fan assuming it flows correctly. I have a EM car now, but ran the rear mount in CP for a long time. Make sure your tubes connecting it run as low as possible in the car and below the fill/bleed points. They can be tricky to get burped.

    Thanks Dave! You confirm my thoughts. If I do it lines will run down Tranny tunnel as low as I can get them.
