    Curious...What are you trying to accomplish Mopar DLM? Less left or rear weight? Where is the ballast now? I know we favored the LR with ballast when we ran them. But also 25# toward RF in most conditions too.

    We've run the Dyna-Batt in 2 crate cars for 2 seasons, (3 if we get to race this year). We havent had any troubles with it. We slow charge it on fridays in the shop, Dont touch it the rest of the weekend...

    CCHIEF, With lots of down time just looking for ways to get faster. Don't need it to cut weight. Just wondering if I would get $1000 dollars worth of performance out of a battery. Losing a little left side won't hurt us. Have one 25# chunk of lead mounted under the dry sump tank

    Cutting weight would be the only reason to buy an expensive battery?
    Droop isn't the problem.

    Going up to the 16V stuff would be another reason we would get one. Just to improve starting and ignition

    Put a XS 1000 16v battery in it and forgetaboutit. You have a heavy driver? > ~200# Spend your money elsewhere!

    But then I would be spending money on something that is heavier than what is currently working in the car now.

    Buy the battery that makes you happy. But if your only adding 25# of ballast..... you got something/s heavy in that car.

    What do most cars typically weight nowadays without driver in it and how much ballast on average are most having to add

    It varies a ton to be honest.

    If your required to have: Steel door plate (18 to 20#), fire system 10 to 15#, etc. It can add up pretty quick so anywhere from 25# to 100# is normal to get to 2300/2350 unless it was built as a light weight car for a class.

    Sure you can get a car to 2150-2170# with a Steel block type SAS motor and 165# driver, as I've done it but it takes a lot of work and preparation on parts selection. Note: This was before door plates, fire systems and heavy components in places.

    Any recommendations on a wax vape pen battery? The assortment is huge and every seller says his product is the best, it is a real problem to define with an item (I am using a wax pen vaporizer Yocan Evolve Plus ).
