My second race was against a new Subaru WRX, those things are fast as hell he got a 13.937 @ 96.43, third race was a 65 GTO he got a 12.386 @ 95.19, and the 4th race was solo.

For the newer bonnevilles, the back seat comes off to acces the battery, I'm sure it is relatively easy to take off completely. On older gen cars its a matter of the correct pushing and pulling to take off our back seat.

Yep battery under the back seat. I haven't tried to remove it yet, but I'm sure it'* not as easy as the manual shows.

All modern G bodies have them under the backseat. Their engine bay'* too small...No room for batteries, or turbos... Kinda nice though, helps with weight a little, and keeps the battery away from the elements, while still able to charge.
