    I'm trying to track down the minimum sized battery to run lights and start up only and nothing else and can't find figures for current draw at start up etc.
    Any help appreciated, thanks

    not quite track but very very light version, lost a few hundred kg, and still going.

    Will end going on track at some point but a bit of a fun project at the moment.

    Maybe another way to ask this is, if I were running a track car what battery should I be looking for that is lighter than stock ?

    Thanks Ronnie.

    How do I find the correct size for cranking current ? Is it a case of measuring what I have or has someone else already done this ?
