Losing 23 pounds off the front end with a 13lb. battery (that works) sounds too good to be true. I am trying to offset the additional front end weight of the KB blower so I just ordered one.

I hope this is not a "too late" question. Any experience out there?

How well does this battery hold up to daily driving? Also can it handle running my electric fan with the car off for a couple minutes?

Works great. I have one in my daily driver and love it.

Bill,
It will handle the fans for several minutes. It charges very quickly when you start the car. Don't try to run fans and an electric water pump for 30 minutes or anything dumb like that. You know that the mod motor cools off very quickly anyway. With fans and/or the Meziere pump you should be back down to under 150 degrees in about 5 minutes.

I've had one for several months now. Only problem I had was when I accidentaly left the dome light on overnite (duh).

The battery does not have a lot of reserve. You can probably get away with running the fan for 5 minutes, but I'd be careful not to go any longer than absolutely necessary.

Yeah, Bob is right, the reserve on the battery is low. It has plenty of cranking power and charges quickly as stated. Don't run those fans for very long and you will be fine! I have had mine for several months and it works great! Had to charge it once when it wasn't driven for a few weeks.

Works great

I have had my dynabat for about a year without problems. They are a little expensive but work very well (even in cold weather).

I have had my share of probs with the DynaBatt.

It did not crank my car over very good. Even when charged. Bob even let me borrow his jumper cables at the end of last season because it died in the staging lanes.

I had to send it back to Performance Distributors for a replacement.

I am saving it for the track only use.

I run a Wal-Mart battery to and from the track and on the street and it cranks and works way better than the Dynabatt plus it only cost $39.00.

Later, Jason

If you have UD pulleys I would put the stock alt pulley back on. That battery will not put up with much abuse (ie discharging it at idle) before it won't hold a charge any more.

Has anybody done data logging with their stock battery or a dynabatt? Autotap allows you to monitor battery voltage and I'd be curious to see how the voltage levels are affected at idle and near redline. Or for that matter, how a UD pulley would affect it.

I have to say unless you a dedicated racer it seems like alot of hassle and expense for 20 lbs. I mean if 100 lbs is a tenth and the batt saves 20 lbs then your ahead .02. I would think the average Joe weekend warrior would be better off with a re-lo.
Just my .02



P.S. I still havent decided what I am doing! My car is close to 4000 lbs with me in it!

I've had mine for several months now with no problems to report. I even jumped another vehicle off last week with absolutely no hesitation from the DynaBatt. I've gone as long as 5 days without cranking the car and it never hesitates on the first crank.
