Hi, folks.
My build has a good space for a radiator, limits 12" by 27". I'm actually planning to put 2x radiators sandwiched (horizontally stacked) - one for motor and charger, another for the battery pack.
Checked a couple of vehicles already - standard sizes seem to be either too wide or too long for my case. Custom radiators seem to be on the expensive side.

Can anybody please recommend the one that will fit?

Thanks in advance.

electrical equipment operates with a fairly small dT to ambient compared to ICE so a thin, large radiator would be more efficient. Putting multiple cores or multiple radiators one behind the other just means the subsequent cores are cooled by warm air from the first one and you don't get very good efficiency for the mass.

Thanks. Yes, I understand. The idea is to keep two independent loops though.
Given my motor (Tesla SDU) can operate at temps up to 85C, its radiator core can be subsequent to that of the one belonging to the batteries (try to keep in 20..30C range).

No, you don't understand. Not a f*cking word.
Dude, you gotta change your attitude. I'm fielding a dozen+ reports a week from (different) people tired of you being hateful to others. More than everyone else, combined, times ten. I'm a very light moderator, and I don't believe in deleting content, I think people's behavior should be open for others to see. And I tread very lightly around acting on "I don't like this person, they're mean, stop them from being mean", because it's subjective and people have to learn to converse with people of all temperments, not just cry to authority so that they don't have to be exposed to them... but... while you're highly knowledgeable on many subjects, you're offering very little of value to the community, and, far beyond being blunt and rude, you're being a persistent shit-disturber. So, I can either just start deleting inflamatory posts so you know they'll be a waste of your breath to make them, or, I'll have to give you a temporary or permanent ban. Or, ideally, you just change your behavior and be less of an asshole. I would sympathize if you were unaware how your words are being taken, but, there are examples accumulating like these that are obviously unprovoked nuclearly antagonistic.

I dunno if it's a social skills issue, a poorly-tuned humor issue, an anger issue, a sobriety issue, or what but, y'all gotta chill or not be here one way or the other.

I'd have posted this privately but, considering how the whole community is aware of it and regularly publicly and privately comments on it in almost every thread you post in, I figured it might as well become a PSA. It's not specific to you, I'd treat anyone else the same, but, so far it doesn't apply to anyone else.
