how many batts do you have?

run them along the sides of your trunk for better weight distribution.

Please... do it right, don't add a bunch of weight to make your car 3 wheel. All it will do if you dump a bunch of weight into the spare tire well is buckle the body. First, start with a strong, reinforced frame and 10-12 batteries. For cylinders, go with at very least 12's. If your frame is wrapped, it should go right into 3 with no problems.

i agree with vegas. I don't care what anyone says. To me, when it comes to hydraulics, there is a RIGHT way and a ton of half ass ghetto ways. If you can't afford to do it the right way, then either save until you can do it the right way or just don't do it at all.

I don't care what anyone has to say, so don't come back with your comments and try to change my thinking---THERE IS A RIGHT WAY OF DOING THINGS AND 1000 WAYS OF DOING THE SHITTY THING :biggrin:

I am simply stating to do shit the right way, loading lead or concrete in the trunk is ghetto as hell and it is THE WRONG way. Do it clean, do it nice, and do it the right way.

Doing it NICE, doing it CLEAN, doing it STRAIGHT= the RIGHT WAY,,,,,,,,,,,,,to me anyway :cool:

yes, but when it comes to something that could destroy the car, i advise against it... I remember the days where we all did that and bent our frames, buckled quarters, and destroyed our rides.... now the technology and know-how is around to prevent that. I have experience to share, you obviously do not, so just learn from people with more experience.

ever had lead weights made???
if you read this carefully... .I did not suggest adding weights..[/b][/quote]
ok then... why the hell would you ask about having weights made for... to weight down his dog???? obviously it is implied in your statement to have weight made and use them to help 3 wheel.

because i have seen it done before..

Then wait until the money is there to do it right. It will cost you a hell of a lot more to replace a frame or whole car than to do it right the first time.

Vegas, id just like to add that your a Cool motha fucker.. and you know your shit..

But sometime's people just wont listen.. and you'll see him posting in 2 or 3 week's. talking about "I just buckled my rear quarter's, and it ruined my runny ass candy.. All because i didnt listen to VegasHopper when he was trying to warn me."

You did your part, and you get hella prop's from me.. But there is no way you'r gonna stop him from doing it Ghetto fabulous..

Now just sit back and wait for him to make that post..

BTW Dirty.. I've got everything i need in the garage four a two pump set up.. and i just got in contact with a welder who build's tractor's for a living. I should get it juiced up by him, cause if he can put Hydro's on a tractor, and they hold up to the pressure, he should be able to do it. And for free at that..

But im waiting untill i get the dough to send it to Hi calibur for a full frame wrap before Any hole's get cutt in my cutt...

DO SHIT THE RIGHT WAY, OR HIT THE HIGHWAY...
