You've got to have a 4 wheeler or a golf cart to tow! Besides can't tow it to the staging lanes even if I did have one per the rules. But yes, if you've got one you can tow on the return road. Didn't they say you couldn't on the return road last year?

Don't know buddy. I've had my butt planted in the stands. All I know is the rules on the web page and assuming they're the gospel, give or take a few words here and there. :wink:

I know some of you guys would like to know this data...

Powermaster 16v battery weighs in at 46 lbs, removal of the alternator and brackets was worth 11lbs off the nose.

Important note: When charging the voltage is just under 19 volts, so electronic gear should be disconnected while that process is going on. Glad I read the manual, a rarity for me!

I have to say we have forgot to take the charger off before and ran the engine with no problems...but this doesnt mean that you wont. Most companys in the racing aftermarket hael there products 16 volt ready Charged the battery is close to 17 volts....

Keep us updated on the results if you go testing before the 21st. If not, hopefully I'll be down there to see firsthand and then you don't have to tell anyone else. :lol: :smt077

16 volt

TheV 12 & 16 volt battery has nearly twice the reserve capacity as the competitors. We replace two of that other one with ! of ours and maintain a higher voltage. Loose the extra weight - run one batteyr vs two, and no you dont need an alternator - they maintian the voltage round after round. Performance and durable, designed to last - www.theVbattery.com
Includes a 12 volt terminal for those that wanna run things on 12V, no step down box required.
The reserve capacity eliminates charging all the time to maintain the voltage. You'll notice increase fan / wp / fp speeds, better starts, hotter spark, more consistency (because of steady voltage).

Dyno tests are proving more horsepower, users are confirming more reserve capacity improves consistency.

Complete package.

The battery is the heart of the car
- low voltage is the enemy!
(ohms law!)

Ask the pro at Product Engineering fuel pumps (John R) -
85% of the problems with pumps and pressure are created by voltage peaks and spikes.

Nitrous users; YOU NEED MORE voltage!


Save time, weight, money and increase performance!

Hmm 7 posts and every one of them are ads for your battery's "Partsmore". Typically I have nothing against our forum members posting things like this, as long as they are regular forum members, a personal friend, or are paying me $$$$. In other words, you're quickly wearing out your welcome here... Do you get my point?
