Thread: which battery should i choose?

  1. #1

    which battery should i choose?

    i run a dragster with a 555 bbc, run all the good stuff like msd digital programmable 7,pro cube delay,brp electric shift,starting line auto start,all digital led gauges(tac,oil,temp,trans temp,volt,vac,oil temp)also run head lights and digital dial in board.
    i ran the red top optima last year and noticed the volts getting low even with charging between rounds,so i thought i would try the optima group31a battery,battery was delivered and i was suprised to find out this thing weighs 59.8 lbs(should have read the specs better)would like to run alternator but have no room.
    so does any body have any good sugggestions on what i should try??
    i cant afford to give a grand for those v batteries. thanks

    If you can't run an alternator, get a 16 volt setup.

    Odessy batteries are great pieces to run. they also loose little or no power from weekend to weekend ..their bookelts say that a fully charge battery will stay charged for 2 years


    they also have high pulse cranking available up to 2250 amps for 5 seconds

    I have a spec sheet on my computer I have scanned and can send it to you for specs

    let me know
