I have had good luck with the Optima's.
(I have 2 of the "red" ones).
One in the car (no alternator),and one powering my winch on the trailer.

Suprisingly, I've run the same Everstart battery for 2 years. It's the 830cca model and would start my 400 street stock engine, even when stalled while engine was hot. The best part is I only paid $35 + tax for it new.

Thanks. We've been having trouble with "normal" batteries. We bought an Optima (red top) but thought I'd double check to see if that was the right one before we installed it.

Any other input is welcome.

Okay, so I sent an e-mail off to Optima to ask them which of their batteries would be best for our application. They recommended the yellow-top variety.

Anyone using the yellow-top? (Of course it's about $50 more than the red top!)

Well, we had already bought the red top, and since it's cheaper and seems to work for you, I guess we'll keep it. Thanks!
