Default Ride on mower battery for race car

Looking at a lightweight battery for my racer to be, I was thinking what could be the differences between a ride on mover, and a proper race "built" battery.
Beside the quality of it, like Lithium or similar, stronger casing.
I found some ride on 300 cca or more ,40 aH , at quite low prices. And if a may save a bit of $ there, the better. But I am not interested to buy one again in a year time.

Any ideas ,or previous experiences good or.. bad?

Thanks in advance.

I'm using the same model battery that I have in my lawn mower/garden tractor. It's a 16#, 300CCA/375CA battery that the local Farm and Fleet store sells for $29.95 USD. The one in my '69 is four years old, and still works great.

I also have a C4 PMGR starter on the engine which helps reduce the battery current requirements.

Thank you very much! This is the info I was looking for ! And yes having one of those fancy starters will definitely help the current draw.
