Hey everybody, since i did the wire tuck on the coupe i am going to be doing a battery relocation on the car as well, i have been having a really hard time trying to figure out what i want to use as far as battery goes. The car is mainly going to be for some weekend fun, some driving to and from work and maybe a trip to the drag strip. Now i really want to use a lawn battery (found one with the ca needed) and wanted to place it behind the dash with a inline fuse, cutoff switch and distribution block, thats what i really want to do, but now would that be legal for autox, road course, or drag strip? the battery would be securly tied down, and it is a sealed battery so i dont have to worry about it being vented.

The next option is relocating the battery to the back,using a full size battery having the kill switch in the back as well, and running a normal battery box from say oreilly. I know i want to have a kill switch installed just in case something dumb happens, and i know i need a distribution block. I am doing this on as big of a budget as possible so let me know your thoughts.

using small battery rough cost- 50 total
using large battery relocated to the back roughly 100 bucks

I really just want to make sure that i am legal to race at the autocross, and the occasional dragstrip run, i dont know if i would want to run a small battery in the trunk due to voltage loss thats why that is not on the list. Please let me know yoiur thoughts because i am stuck.

ok, well i guess that says it for me then, the lawn battery is out and the box in the trunk is in, im not worried about a kit, just a decent box is all, what are your thoughts about the generic parts store battery boxes?

whats wrong with the batery in the stock location.More weight over the drive wheels for traction.
