    Interesting consequence of reduced weight. my E89 Z4 has the battery in the same place as the Z8. I've put wider wheels and tires on the Z4 (as I've upgraded to the Alpina wheels on my Z8). Now, in...

    Congrats! Yes, I'd be curious to see how heavy the batteries really are.

    Do you know what size batteries are in the F350 now? Generally speaking two batteries depending on size would be around 90 lbs to 130 pounds. Which could easily be dropped to 34-44 pounds with...

    Have you tried the current generation of Lithium ion batteries? I recently installed a 17 pound, 1500 CCA battery and so far so good. I've had hit and miss experiences with Odessy batteries and this...

    Yes and no. The CTEK I believe is also a battery restorer and as such it works differently as the Li does not need this restorative process. I'm working on sourcing a good trickle charger

    Hi Andrew

    The Z8 battery, I'd guess is probably more like 60-65 pounds.

    From what I've seen, these batteries are better IMO than the Odyssey. I've been working with a company in China,...

    For guys who money is no object, having the lowest mileage Topaz car, this is a car someone will buy. I suspect if it was on BAT it would pull all the money.

    Dare I say it, but I actually like the chrome "Z8" on the rear bumper in that photo. Has anyone done that here? Is it just an adhesive?

    Thank you for that warning! There I was thinking I might confuse it with a doughnut!

    So rotating 180 should increase negative camber.
