I run odyssey battery. One of the higher capacity ones.... still not enough juice. But I do keep a batterytender on it when it is in my garage.

It is good for 2-3 day non-running, but my car's parasitic loss is too much for this battery to handle.

Battery tender is your friend.

My car will never go more then half a day without being driven. I also have no extra electrical stuff hooked up to the car except a oem under seat speaker I plan on getting from Randi. What model Odyssey do you have?

I'm not sure which model, but its one of the larger ones.

Rear mount batteries are AWESOME because you can jump someone or be jumped on both ends.

Eitherway, If you go out of town for a week, your car will be dead. That is really annoying, especially if you park outside with an alarm on.

I have a master circuit breaker in my trunk to disconnect the battery entirely so long term storage is possible without complete dead battery. Highly recommend.

Havent been to a meet in awhile, last time I went out was with Garret, E, Dennis, Randi and Sean to hit up BJ's Brewery. No time to do the meet thing these days.

Look at AMS Performance.

They make some pretty bad ass racing battery kits for the Evo...

As long as the crank amps, and cold crank amps are there, then you'll be good.

Here's a link.
