Which Weigh To Go?

Put That Heavy Battery In The Stern Where It Belongs

Weight is definitely not an ally in the pursuit of quick timeslips. Sir Isaac Newton's Second Law of Motion goes something like: The acceleration of an object as produced by a net force is directly proportional to the magnitude of the net force, in the same direction as the net force, and inversely proportional to the mass of the object. What Ike is trying to say is the heavier your car, the more power is required to accelerate it.

Once you have rid your ride of superfluous weight, such as the boom-boom stereo, neon light kit and jeweled crown air freshener, you need to look at placement of the necessary items. For drag racing, moving the weight toward the rear of the car can significantly improve a car's traction by improving weight transfer. The battery is an ideal candidate for relocation arrears, as it is heavy and simple to move. Follow along as we show you this easy mod and the safety considerations to make your car race ready.
