Running strong. One time about a week and a half ago it didn't want to start the first time I tried, but I had just driven it a short distance, shut it off, then tried to start it with my lights on and AC on full. When I turned the lights and AC off it started right up.

you might need more insulation on the the terminals than just electrical tape

Whats your suggestion? I cut out the cap that came with the battery to protect the sides, and the electrical tape I only put on there to prevent shorting.

there are lots of different battery terminal protectors out there, just find one that fits best.
