How important is CCA to a 'healthy' engine starting?

Post by Dr. FrankenRex »

I did a real short (less than 3 min) vid comparing the Varta N72 and the Yuasa HSB030 batteries on the PZ to demonstrate the importance (or lack of) CCA in relation to starter speed on a normal day. This does not take in to account really low temps which is when CCA really plays a factor, but I can't do that right now as it's not jaffing cold.

In short, a higher CCA does not impact normal starter speed :)

But for those interested in watching anyway:
