Save 30 pounds with this

http://www.portablepower.com/Product...06S1P&AddOn05=


I think i might buy it but i was thinking . Since we dont have LSD and our battery weighs about 40 pounds that would probbly help keep the left wheel on the ground. However loosing 30 pounds usiing a 13 pound battery sounds tempting.

What do you guys think?

Guys.. how about this battery?

http://www.portablepower.com/items/b...SL141/37L141S5

I have 2 battery now.. one huge optima yellow top at trunk for the system.. it weights too much (like 5lbs) but i am very paranoid at times cuz i do run system for long time and fall asleep in my car.. , which is why i got 2..

so instead.. i will have this as backup bettery for starting the car.. weight 12lbs, sure beats 50lbs.. will this battery work?

Small 680 cranking amp battery with metal jacket and SAE automotive terminals.
Also available without the metal jacket for low temperature applications.
Battery measures 3.11" wide x 7.27" long x 6.67" tall with the metal jacket and weighs 15.4 pounds.

Excellent starting battery where high reserve capacity is not required.
Great lightweight racing battery for shedding extra pounds.
Can be mounted upright or flat.

I bought this but i havent installed it yet as i am scared that it will die!
so this is the one recommended for starter battery? i might just give it a try.. gonna sell my optima yellow....

LOL, maybe I will. Of course, with the amount of luck (or lack thereof) selling here, may be a while.

It should be fine. My neighbor has a stinger that is similar. No problems. This is specifically made to be used in a car (as far as I know).

ok but if you dropped the spare tire then you'd save a whole lot more... well if you have an AAA membership

Doesn't Honda have a tire inflation tool in the new hybrid? I know it would not help with a sideline slash, but it would with most others.
