This is the rack in my Caddy... had 14 batteries, but I've went to 12.
That's a real nice/clean setup. What group/type of batteries are those?

Hey Air280

Why did you not go with 9 batteries?

also,

Is the tubing being used for frame support/reinforcement?

cos he only wanted to run 48v.....................
the tubing ties the bridge/kickup plating/rack all together [so there is no load on the quaters] and supports the pumps

What year is that Regal? I have a 85 and I'm pulling out the rack to make something different.

I'm going to remove the gas tank and bolt two plate to the insides of the inner frame rails and come up about 1/2" over the trunk floor.

Then build a two piece (welded) rack I would then bolt together.

What do you mean by or what does this mean: the tubing ties the bridge/kickup plating/rack all together [so there is no load on the quaters]

I'm not sure if I don't know the names of the car parts, or if you have a different name for them :)

would you suggest this for me too? Or is that rack not tied into the frame?

'83.
has a chain bridge [6"x3/82 channel].
chassis kickup over axle is plated with 1/4 steel from sill end to back of chassis.
rear bit of plating goes up thro floor and is attatched to pump/battery rack.
tubing is welded to top of bridge at the front and to rack at the back so it forms a brace tiying the rearmost end of the rack to the bridge to stop any flexing.............
it works for me but there are peeps that have done more installs than me on here [hydros are relatively new in UK]................. :)

OK thanks, yes I know you're from the UK, I've been to your site a few times.

So, I'm guessing the car is made for 3wheel, I'm for pure hopping, so I'm guessing I won't even need to bother with this?

Thanks bro, the batteries are group 31 Trojans. Here are a couple of pics of the setup when I first bought the car...
