Deka Powersports - Weighs next to nothing, Starts just about anything
When Peter Hennessey of Road & Race Performance in Sydney approached us looking for the ideal starting battery to suit his freshly completed and fully race prepared BMW racecar we were more than happy to assist.
The car has been stripped and meticulourly built from the ground up to be as strong, tough and most importantly light as possible with carbon fibre used extensively throughout the cabin and engine bay to keep weight to a minimum. The car also runs an angry high compression M-Division engine capable of putting down more than 300hp at the treads, and needless to say requires a fair bit to kick into life.
With size, weight, safety and cabin mounting paramount considerations, we suggested Peter try (and were keen to see whether) a tiny Powersports starting battery would be up to the task. While designed for use in the motorcycle market, these batteries never fail to amaze and have proved themselves in a league of their own when it comes to starting high compression big-cube V-twins.
Now wrapped and running a tiny 7kg ETX16
in his BMW, Peter reports that the tiny Powersports starts the big donk first time, every time and provides him an advantage on the track. Peter reports "I am now carting around much less dead weight in the car and the smaller battery also recovers faster and presents a lighter load on the alternator during the race. In this competitive category every little bit helps!" Peter is already getting attention in the pits from other competitors who notice his lightweight advantage with a keen eyed, adding "I don't know how much longer it will be my advantage, but that's life".
