Hi, I need a new battery for my RXC Turbo 500.

Before I remove the old one (for the moment I don`t know where it is installed ;-)),

I would like to buy the new one and change it right away.

Does anyone know the exact specifications and the size of the battery?

Thank you!

Welcome to the Forum David!  Unfortunately I don't have that information for the RXC battery.  I would recommend giving Spring Mountain or your local dealer a call.  Hopefully one of the other members will have the information.

Thanks Charley!

I called Radical in England.

They do not give out the specs of the battery. I have to buy it from them. £377.00 Plus shipping and taxes...

Assuming you are referring to an RXC Coupé and not Spyder...

Battery location will be in front of the passenger footwell... But access is though an inspection trap from above. You'll have to remove the front bodywork section with the 8 (IIRC) half turn screws... Be careful when you remove it not to lose the foam that prevents vibrations and remember to unplug the large round mil connector to front lighting (you can disconnect it before loosening the bodywork by reaching for it slightly to the left of centerline at the base of the windscreen)

There is also an "L" shaped fibreglass battery cover that extends into the compartment and acts as a divider between driver and passenger. You will have to remove this too. Easiest way is to access the securing screws also from above though the inspection trap using a long socket wrench extension (hex head screws some 13 mm and some 10 mm)... It will take some twiggling to actually take the cover our of the car.

Best way to remove the battery is to pull it out from above but once it's out of its tray, lower it in the passenger footwell and hence pull it out from there. Best to have two people do this. You may have to "bend" slightly the tray to ease the battery out.

Hope this helps.

This is the battery I pulled out of the RXC Turbo 500 that's in our workshop. Unfortunately I don't have the exact measurements at hand...
