i have an optima redtop. it has done its job well so far :thumb:
I just put one in mine. Cut off the top posts for clearance and put JB weld on it to prevent shorting along with part of the top plastic cover on the positive post.Cornholio said:I found Red optimas at Costco (St Louis) for $99. Not sure of the size tho.
Damn, why didn't I think of that? lol I just shaved a little off the post and stuck it in. Works like a charm.Tiepilot said:The fitment issues are solved by laying the battery on it's side. THe Optima is a sealed gel cell that will not leak. I put a red top in my Viper and merely laid it on it's side and used solid brass marine terminals from Advanced Auto parts. It fit and works perfectly.
I figure if Tom Sessions one of the best Viper Techs in the US does it this way I should take the hint. As I said it works perfect and does not leak.
Oh, Red Top. I was thinking Carrottop.makara said:Oh God. Are you kidding? I hate RedTop. What a frikking pain in the ass, always blabbering about the stupidist shit ever, selling out for that one eight hundred a t t commercial.
You mean all Viper drivers don't do that on a regular basis? Strange.V10 MOJO said:so unless your plannin on doin some freaky ass james bond shit, go with something thats meant to fit in the space provided
