I apologize in advance for once another thread regarding batteries, it seems like they pop up everywhere nowadays. Here's my question: Is there such thing as a battery that's "too light"? I was browsing around various car forums and stumbled upon a battery that weighs less than 5 pounds. Are there any side effects to having a battery that's significantly less than the stock battery? The stock battery weighs in at around 25.5 pounds. Less traction in the front? Any sort of side effects you guys can tell? The specifications of the battery are as follows:

Nominal Voltage: 12.8V
Cranking Amps (CA): 600 amps
Cold Cranking Amps (CCA): 475 amps
Reserve Capacity (RC): 29 minutes
Capacity: 12Ah
Weight: 4.5 pounds

What do you guys think? Go for it or no? Thanks for your help.
