Re: [DML] Re: best battery to put in

Dear "copper_trace":

Do you or do you know where or who retail these Odyssey or Hawker batteries?  
 I would like to try one.   You can e-mail privately: kayoong(AT)

As far as the power cables for my amp, I do believe they are "4" gauge cable 
(or thicker?) and are made by "Stinger."   Both of the positive and negative 
cables are directly wired to the battery's post along with the DeLorean's
