Thought I'd throw my 2 cents in on the battery discussion...I've been running a pair of the 11 lb Brailles for 3 seasons now, and they are awesome. At the Topeka divisional a couple of weeks ago, I pulled a bonehead move and left the water pump running for about 4 hours. When they finally called us up, I got in the car, hit the switch, and nothing! Completely dead! Threw the charger on for about 10 minutes and it was enough to get it running. Drove to the lanes (thanks, alternator!), and had to start it twice to move up...no problem! My wife had the jump box with her, but we didn't need it. Not bad for 3 year old batteries. I'll definitely buy them again when the time comes.

Thanks Paul, Sounds like a lot of positive experiences with Braille.

Want to give a shout out to James Hill and Jared Groff from Groff Motorsports in Snellville, GA for helping us with some brakes. Took great care of us and kept in touch with updates the whole way. Fabulous service!

Worked on a bit of everything this weekend. Rear was back apart because I wasn't too keen on the no pinoin spacer thing, I just couldn't get it perfect so I added the sleeve. Worked on some fuel lines, finished all the brake hard lines, brake light switch and measured for the flex hoses. Started working on the new rear brakes, steering wheel came in but still no quick release mount (been like 8 weeks).

Still going strong after three seasons and it is still pretty light. We do run an alternator and charge between runs. The 17 is kind of iffy.
Went to the Braille store down the street today and this battery is in stock $217+ tax so a few dollars more than say Jegs or Summit.

It appears they have not changed much in price over the years. I think the key to longevity (for any battery really) is to use a maintenance charger when not in use or during the off season. I know they have improved the life of my small engine batteries considerably.

Dropped the radiator back off today for more welding, made some fuel lines, mounted some fuel lines and brake line, tried out the new flex hoses.
