relocate battery

I have always wanted to relocate my battery. To the trunk. What are the pros and cons besides the weight issue? My car isn't a track car just more of a toy.

No cons really besides just working on it I did mine with no problem. Make sure you use big enough wiring. And ground the battery. It makes your car faster about .1 off a quarter mile also make sure you secure the battery also and you'll be perfectly fine

I don't think moving the battery will give you a .1 faster 1/4 time.

Pretty much slightly better weight distribution, and more engine space.

At my 1000 foot track it gave me .04 so it's close to a tenth in 1/4 mile.

Close enough maybe not exactly but it'll help. Little bit oh wait and I just remember that's when I removed ac too. So yeah your right my bad.
