Default "Lighter" weight battery that starts in winter

Battery died in my 2004 WRX autocross car. I had a Duralast Gold rated at 640 CCA and 38lbs for the last 7 years.

I was initially going to replace it with another Duralast Gold, but prices have skyrocketed to $158 with the core replacement. The regular Duralast option ($129) is only 500 CCA and weighs the same.

I saw group 26R is a direct replacement for the stock group 35 and is only 28lbs.... but has 575 CCA. It's also only $129. It's overall dimensions are about 1" off every side.

Are there any other options out there for "lightweight" batteries that would still work in winter? All the Odessey and Braille ones are around the 350CCA or lower range and I doubt that would work the few times I do snowcross events or take it to a meet in the winter.
