    Ok so i am a loss for battery room in the latest project, and have stumbled across this:

    http://www.performancedistributors.com/batteries.htm

    The Dyna-Batt. Claimed to be "able to crank over a 15:1 motor, and has a 16 amp-hour reserve capacity." No Cranking amp/CCA figures given.

    Anyone here have any experience with these units? At 7" long, 3" wide and 61/2" it fits the bill, but are they reliable??

    I bought one of those years ago and it wouldn't even turn over the 6-volt starter on my flathead. I'll never buy one again.

    They seem to be pretty good, we use a pair of them in promod cars (24 volts) to run the starter. 2 fit in place of one battery and save 45 lbs in the process


    They last a long time and seem to handle extreme enviroments very well.

    I had one in my coupe and it lasted 8 years without any problems.When I bought my roadster, there was a place over the rear fender made for one,so that's what I bought.It works great.

  6. Mid 90s Honda Civic uses an incredibly small battery. 8X5X7 tall if I recall correctly. Not sure abut the CCA, but I'm gonna try one on the v12.

    Completely sealed. That is why you can lay them on thier side.
