Rebuilding my Rhino for CT

every year I participate the Croatia Trophy , Croatia Trophy
one of the longest and hardest offroad trophy in Europe
7 days racing through forests,creeks,swamps and amazing nature

I modified the rhino with some necessary tools and add-ons
I hope I don't write to much mistakes, my native language is dutch

where the radiator and oilcooler was placed I've put a "mudshield"



winch mounted upsidedown to save space



rhino met external alternator (45amp) from suzuki samurai to feed the second battery which operates the 2 winches and floodlights




the red light on the right is the alternator-indicator (like the batt light in car)

@bigjim last year with stock position radiator it heated on the circuitstage (12 laps of 3.6km)
this year we've put the rad and oilcooler behind and up as you can see on some pics
it didn't overheat once during the 7 days which are 90% full throttle lol
I broke 2 brand new springs in 1 Stage of 40kms
