So here is the final product. Chassis mounted lip and under tray.

The under tray goes about 1/4 of the way into the lip and then mounted there as well For rigidity.

This thing is stout.

So new issue but I think we have already figured it out....

So the banking at Charlotte was awesome but was having weird electrical issues. The car would be fine on the banking but when it would go flat the car would die. Shut off completely like someone hit the kill switch. Checked everything connection wise and everything looked good. So tired it a few more times thinking it was a fluke but not so...Kept having the issue the rest of the day. At times was able to get a few good laps in but anytime I got high on the banking and flat again the car would cut off.

So after talking to multiple people that are much smarter than me, it seems to be an old battery that was "sloshing" the acid around and losing power. So if you have an old battery replace it.

Went with an Optima Yellow Top. Will try out Thursday at Road Atlanta.

Why are you still bothering with lead batteries?

When I had electrical problems at the track, it was due to the car not recognizing a battery was connected. It was an early antigravity battery and I don't think the battery was compatible for how the car managed electronics at the track. The car would hiccup and shift to 7th sometimes. And once I shut it off, there was zero power. It did not completely shut off on track though.

No problems here with a voltphreaks battery.

Little help here if anyone has ever had these codes:

2B4F- DC + /DC + Converter Dynamic Stability Control Status (white marking on wiring harness)

CF14, CF15, CFC1, CF13H, CF41H

5E49, D35A, D356, D355, D354

Replaced and coded new battery.

Car throws a transmission error on dash and then yellow abs and yellow brake.

Thinking the first code is the culprit and causing the others. Anyone know or has an idea where this wiring harness would be located.

Yeah I know. Just put a optima in. Yes the car could use a LW battery. But need to sort this crap out first.
