After talking to my neighbor, he's sort of a technical expert, he suggested that I reuse it. I sprayed it with battery cleaner and cleaned it up. So I said, well I got a brand new ground strap what do I do with it, he said use it too. So the car is Uber grounded. FYI the starter ground wire and the ground in question don't actually touch. 'It's an engine ground. I mistakenly called it a starter ground. This strap however allows the starter to be grounded. At any rate this ground strap is an alternative.
