no need to be  any more worried about starter brushes than with a regular gt battery. In fact the higher RESERVE may help extend the life, as trying to get that last crank out of it when the battery is about flat is the hardest on an electric motor.

That is exactly why I am replacing my 220cca Never Starts with the 420cca Excides.

Found a 12 volt golf cart battery that gets the job done.  Engine system charges it back up with no problem.  Amps to spare!
