Could the trans be creating too much heat and over powering the radiator? If your oil is staying cool something else has to be effecting the coolant.

Since mikes cooler, i have not seen over 210 on the trans. that use to get up to 230-240 with coolant but i would be running 240* on coolant at every hill. Its very very slow to rise in temp.

I dont know, Id be curious. The stock sensor is prone to heat soak too. The heat exchanger in my radiator is suppose to be much better than stock as well so maybe?

Got a pair of frame brackets from 1Fastbrick (thank you sir!) and ill be picking up a stock bumper and all the stuff i need from it hopefully wednesday. probably wont get any of this stuff install for a month or two but atleast ill have it. aux radiator has to be built anyhow and im waiting on joe to get back in town to order it. hes adding provisions for the oil cooler to attach to the front of the aux cooler. i have not decided if i want to run it on the front of the aux cooler as it will induce more heat so i may try running it off to the side and on the front to see if it makes a difference. wanted to try to do all this before the heat went away but with my schedule, its not looking like it.

Did a bunch of running around today but I now have everything to put this sucker together. Grabbed the aux rad from Joe along with fan, shroud and front end shrouding. Then ran across town to pull a bumper off my buddies truck hes parting out. Its not perfect but had everything I needed. Going to see if I can pop the dent out and get a new top plastic piece before I get the plastics color matched




Now to figure out when the hell I can do it all. Maybe over my week off between Christmas and New Years..... if I can make myself wait that long

So I worked over the tracker pretty good on my trip in Mexico. 200 mile round trip of dirt punishment. Tweaked the frame and killed the front suspension.... So Im dailying the limo.

That said, needed to work on some things. Swapped the solid fan hub back to the viscous clutch, changed a bad brake bulb out, put the tow tune back in and Josh has freed up time to get the 6 speed tuning dialed for running G3 clutches.

On the first revision today and so far so good. Cleaner smoother down shifts and thus far (crossing fingers), the bump I get when the trans is hot from the 2-1 down shift/false neutral is cleaning up. Tomorrow morning Ill see if the rough down shifts when cold are cleaner.

I do need to figure out what I want to do for a dual fueled controller, 90% sure mines dieing as it lopes/rattles coming to an idle from a coast and sometimes lopes just idling.

Did walk a mmi kid on a Harley on the on ramp. Was getting the trans learned on the new tune and looked back to see the bike trying to keep up but just fading back. That was pretty funny
