Wow...this thread is just like...wow.


It's a battery bar. As long as it's not made of tunafish, it should work a-ok.

A BAR IS A BAR BUT WITHOUT TASTE...

You are right...
I was just tryingto help, after all a bar is a bar... (SOVIET)
The point I tried to get through is that they will NOT NOTICE A DIFFERENCE. As long as it does not taste like TUNA.

I use sections of old shoelaces and CA glue to hold them on. Is that bad? My car isn't very fast.

I used to just tape loose cells to the chassis, then throw the car down the track. After smashing a fellow racer in the face with my car, I abandoned that plan.

I now harness the car to squirrels using high quality yarn. Haven't bought brushes in years.

I use pure coper bars, and i have also used pure copper braid in the past.. I personally think the plating is just for looks.. My copper bars i use at least to me work just as good as any other bar out there.. Ive built a pack with silver bars, cycled it, then rebuilt it with the ones i use with no noticeable differences..

As long as the battery bar does not contain a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer, it should be ok.

If electricity just flowed along the surface then wouldent it be better to use a tiny wire. less loss of energy. Or a really big one to increase flow?

Who knows, if you do. tell me

Also is it just me who thinks those fusion (i think they are fusion) battery bars are a total joke???
