Just installed about a week ago to replace/ upgrade old battery. This is in my '86 300ZX. I have to admit it looks like it was made to go in there since my car is red. Have heard many good things about Optima so I feel it will be worth the money. Did get an excellent online deal that saved a good bit of money as well. The car starts immediately without any crank time at all. I have had all the big brands in there over the years and with few exceptions they lasted an average of 4 years. I guess I'll find out how well this one performs.

Comments about Optima Batteries RedTop Starting Battery:

These are expensive but only a little more than the gold series most brands carry. Definitely worth the value of them though. Optima batteries are always the battery upgrade of any car i've owned in the past.

    Comments about Optima Batteries RedTop Starting Battery:

    I have had my gel cell Red Top in 5 different vehicles over the course of over 9 years. I bought it when Optima gave a 5 year warranty and it has NEVER let me down! By far, the BEST battery investment you will EVER make! Now after 9 grueling years of smoldering summers and sub-zero winters, it has FINALLY reached the end of its road! Time to buy another. And I will GLADLY pay the price for a new one!

        The only reason that this was not an easy install is the problem with the vehicle. It went into a Noble M400 which requires installation from under the car.

                Comments about Optima Batteries RedTop Starting Battery:

                I've heard a lot about these batteries so when I needed a new battery for my 1932 Ford roadster I thought I'd give one a try. It is a street rod with a 1976 Corvette mill. So far it starts just fine with plenty of cranking power. It seems like it will work just fine. I will see how it performs after I get a few more miles on it. It fit my custom battery box with a few minor modifications to the box. I needed both the top and side mount terminals with the battery cables ont top and I connected a Battery Tender pigtail on the side mounts. This way I can just plug in the battery tender while the car is in winter storage.

                      A:

                      In cold weather applications, a battery's ability to provide cranking power to the engine is extremely important. This Optima Batteries RedTop Starting Battery, Group Size 75/25, 720 CCA - part# 75/25-925 have a lower internal resistance, which provides increased cranking power even in the coldest of temperatures. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

                      I purchased one of these batteries in 2001 (red-top). I have since had it in three vehicles... 1987 Iroc-z, 2003 Chevy Blazer and 2006 Chevy HHR. Its still running strong in the HHR, and I'm actually purchasing another one for the Camaro because i dont want to take it out of the HHR.
