The hoses are away from the axle and brake rotor.
The lower hose is not getting chain lube flung onto it.
The drivers elbow is not constantly bumping the radiator.
The front radiator takes a lot less "hits" from tire rubber.
I've seen a lot of karts climb over a rear tire and take out the rad.
I haven't seen a kart crash into another one and take out the drivers fairing.
The water going to the radiator is only 45 to 55 degrees C.
It's just not that hot.
The set up is one of Epics Plenum deals.
Very nice, vibration mounted, carbon fiber, well engineered.
The only complaint from my son is that the clutch handle is warm after a race!
Plus, It looks Cool!
