Default LIGHTWEIGHT Braille Battery!

Click the image to open in full size.

Hey guys, Im sure some of you have heard of Braille batteries as they have become popular in the Vette scene.
We have a full inventory of Braille products so if you have been looking into ditching that heavy battery and upgrading to a lightweight Braille model let me know.

Take a look at what they have to offer!
http://www.brailleauto.com/productca...p?idCategory=2

If you would like one shoot me a PM of the model your interested in!
We will offer free shipping to all LS1tech members.

Here you can see an install video on an STI.

Here you can see a size difference between OEM and Braille

So will that 15lb replacement offer the same performance as the stocker? If so we need a group purchase!
