i put 96 v to the front on my caddie w/ a fat boy 4 ton springs , did great
just make sure you have a quick connect inside the car and enought solenoids to handle that kind of voltage , we ran 4 accurates and they r still doing fine

I have 84 volts going to the nose (single)with a #11 gear.It works well.I'll be switching it with a #9 soon to see if it does any better. :cool: :cool:

I started out with 0 knowledge about hydros and 72 Volts.

Here's what I learned in a nut shell TAP THE SWITCH!!!

even a light tap moves the car like a sonbitch. I got used to it pretty quickly after I blew a hose. :biggrin: After a few months of doing some reading on this site I actually realized that I was running at 72. The installer had told me it was 48.

I felt pretty pimp for being newbie and starting at 72 :cool:

I have two switches for the front of my monte. One running 60 volts for every day driving and one switch for hopping that runs off 96 volts. You could even run 72 volts for every day riding. Anything after 72 you will start burning up motors and noids.

Thats funny, my first time trying to hop i started off at 96 volts and burned a shitty solenoid up on the second hop, this next time i will start off at like 60 volts :uh:
