16 volt battery system

What is needed to do the conversion on a normal bracket car that runs 2 12 volt batteries?

If you're not living on the edge you're taking up too much space!

What are the advantages or disadvantages of these systems? I heard that you could not cool with the water pump and fan while charging between rounds.

Would this be good or bad for a bracket race car?
