Yeah get an external one man and it will last a lot longer man.

When you set it up. Make sure it runs through your radiator first, then to your external cool and then back to your gearbox like that.

Reason why? When it is set up this way, the oil will cool better as the radiator is not heating it up. It still gets heated a little but then cools even more after going through the external one.

Mount it behind your front bar somewhere too. Also don't forget to top up the trans with oil as your making another res sorta thing. It will hold a little more.
