imagine a whammy tank.
with a street pump on one end - with a small gear for ... 48 volts to work good
and the other end would be a high power hopping pump.

the whammy tank will share the same oil -
so only one set of dumps need to be wired in

but would have to figure out a way to route the preassurized lines to the front to have a t in them or something to be preasurized by either pump.


this could allow a street car to drive around and hit switches just rollin around with the street pump on 48v
and then when its time to hop you could use a diffrent switch wired to the hopping pump at 72+ volts

I dont know - maby its pointless
but I know when im driving around town / anywhere realley I cant seem to keep my fingers from flicking switches. no need to actually hop the car tho when driving just wana lay and play at a light and what not.
so having the double sided whammy setup for the front would / could allow the street car lay and play function , and still be able to hop like a champ when u wanted to.

im gona draw a pix and post it. yall can say yes or no to its feasability of working

you can have just one pump wired at different volts. I have mine wired up at 48v inside the car and have a switch stick wired at 96v for hopping. No need for two pumps.

wow - I did not think it would be possible to wire up two diffrent voltages to the same motor.
im not doubting that yours works
but I would think that there would be back feed of the higher voltage to the lower voltage cable - unless you are running a diffrent bank of solinoids for each diffrent voltage rating... maby thats how

can you still use front side to side switches like this also ?
so the high voltage switch is both left and right front up at same time to hop - and the low voltage switch can be wired to be controled individualy ?

Its called double switching. 2 different voltages on 2 different switchs. Your right you run 2 banks of solenoids and 2 cables to the pump motor. Then wire whatever switches you want to what ever move you like. Just need to run 1 more wire for the 72v solenoid bank. Simple and easy

its been done to make it appear as one common tank before..just that the oil isnt shared between the 2 chambers..they have been seperated on the inside using a steel tank...

X2

or just learn how to lightly touch the switch
