dw,

I found the info out on the GM Racing website from Ralf Hellbing himself, then i decided to conduct my own tests and they are the results.

If you wire up the cap and drive wiht a very low turn motor you can visibly see the difference. Obviously it will depend on how good your batteries are but there is a definite drop in voltage when you get on the gas.

I found when i went much above 10,000 the voltaged drop did not change that much as the cap cannot deliver that much current in a small period of time.

As for stock racing, I don't think it makes as much of a difference but it does make some difference.

Default Power Cap Benefits/Drawbacks

Darkseid;

Now that is exactly what I was looking for. No reason to add one if the Pros never did.
Thanks for passing the info on.

To everyone;
Thanks for your insight and comments.

Pops,

Does that mean you're going to return that capacitor you lifted from your Mom's television now?

Default Power Capacitor benefit

Guys;

I just wanted to update you. I finally installed a small (Novak) Power Cap on my Tekin G-9 and the punch is definately improved. Very noticable on my Monster Stock.
