I wonder if a cap bank would be enough to start... it wasn't enough to start my Cummins 5.9L engine.

I might be interested in purchasing the 3000 farad bank if the price were right, but I have no immediate need for them.
Is this enough?

In 6S3P that would be 1500 farads, 120kJ. Almost a third of the KERS limit for a lap in F1 IIRC
