RideTech is proud to announce that company President Bret Voelkel and the 48 Hour Camaro will be representing Optima Batteries in the Goodguys Autocross Sponsor Shootout in Columbus, OH on July 7-9. RideTech and Optima have a significant history together [dating back to the original Search for the Ultimate Street Car event in 2008] that continues today. Bret commented: “It is always an honor to represent Optima Batteries…they support this market and its people like none other. Every RideTech project starts with an Optima battery!”
Because of superior starting power, compact size, and easy mounting options, Optima Batteries have become THE preferred battery in every segment of the hotrodding world. Bret Voelkel commented further: “ We strive to build suspensions and cars that perform at the highest levels. This means using components that perform at the highest levels. That’s why we insist on an Optima Battery in all our cars.
The 48 Hour Camaro uses the Yellowtop D34/78 with a cold cranking rating of 750 amps and a C20 reserve capacity of 55 amp/hours, this battery [which is still the original unit that was installed in the car during the initial build] has never let this Camaro down!
