Hi Guys,

I currently run an Odyssey Battery in my race car but hearing some bad things about there longevity. Thoughts on alternatives would be good.

Obviously, small, light, sealed a preference.

you can't leave those batteries unattended for weeks at a time, without some sort of trickle charging.

I was thinking of going with one of those, but in the end I just decided to get a $99 sealed deep cell battery at Costco.

I actually do not use the battery very often, it can sit between events for sometimes weeks at a time...
