Daai lyk mos nou na n lekker speel ding, maar ek kan net nie ophou wonder hoe gaan hulle n groot genoeg radiator daar voor inkry om daai enjin koud te hou nie.

Do not need a radiator as it will be flying and the air is cooler high up :lol: :lol:
But it should be a magic feeling to drive a beast like that :twisted:

Dont forget the wheelie bar, you might need it, a mate had one with a Toyota 1600 twincam Motor in it and he was able to get the front wheels off the ground with that thing
