Arrow StankCheeze is a ------ with a heavy battery

Seriously, it only weighs like 8lbs more and the car starts up twice as fast. I **** 8lbs. The modifications to make it fit are minimal and it's roughly the same cost as that Westco piece of **** if you order it online. Plus if you don't drive the car in the winter like me, it's designed for that kind of use.

Therein lies the problem. It's heavier, and requires modifications to make it fit. Add to that a new Westco battery would probably crank just as strong.

If you're worried about 8 lbs, get rid of your 1.8 brakes or ditch your intercooler. It's one of those things that is worth the weight hit, just like the aforementioned parts. **** Westco and **** Mazda with their overpriced, underpowered batteries.

I like how you automatically go to the miata. There are a handful of people around here who've fucked with me on the street, then **** their pants when 6'1", 250lb at 7% gets out of the car and ***** their girlfriend. Think about it, bitch. I drive a raging piece of ****, but I'm taller, tanner, more fit, and look better than you ever will. Its just a matter of time before I'm ***** deep in your bitch. Maybe you'll learn something from me when I hand your bitch back over for the next better **** that comes along.

I have the Optima yellow top,even though it has less CCA's than the redtop,it's still more than the Mazda battery and the car just starts pretty much instantly when I turn the key.

Heavier battery? **** that. Get an Odyssey 680 and save weight. It's the size of a DIN headunit and works great.

So you would downgrade your brakes and loose power for a battery?

Why would you want your car to start faster, I like to have some OP when the car starts up. I have a random battery from one of those big chain stores, it has a red top, it was cheap, and it's been good for 4 years now. **** a battery, you drive a manual transmission car, that bitch dies, you push start it...now go sit in hustlers lap.

I was going to buy the 680... until I realized the Odyssey 625 (jetski battery) weighs 2 pounds less, costs half as much, and rates higher in every single test category. The 625 worked great for me, just had to modify the cables to fit the battery terminals.
