Oddesy battery issue
Posted: Wed Aug 12, 2015 2:31 pm
I think I have an inertia related problem with my latset Oddesy battery. The one I have is about 7x7 and 5"s tall. It is mounted up front and the posts are on the left and right. After replacing the slightly smaller one which died after ten years, my car which normally has 1.50 60' times , began stumbling at the "hit" and slowed to 1.80s. It would "clean out" past the tree and run to 8,000 rpm down track , no problem. I assumed it was fuel system until last weekend while returning to my pit area another racer cut across my path and I had to make a panic stop. The engine died and when I tried to restart it I heard click click click. So I pushed it 20 feet to my location . An hour later ( without doing a thing) it started right up. It's not a heat soak as it had been starting all day hot or cold. I have a Black and Decker "smart" charger and it now shows "open cell" . Has anyone else experienced this? If it is chronic to this brand , I want to change . If not I will write this one off and buy another.
