I've seen this done in person, one of the yokle riders cracked his case so we had an epic gravity race all the way down the foothills, when the road flattened out he was pushed with a foot :)
On the battery stuff, if there was an additive to prevent sulphation it would be in the batteries already. The only desulphation chemical i know if is a food additive, the name of which escapes me, but its designed to eat and capture metal. Lead sulphate being a metal, it eats it off the surface of the plate, hopefully uncovering fresh material.
