I can see the point that you made Pete. I know that you want at least SOME weight over the front wheels for traction in straight-line races. And you are right again about adding the extra weight from the new cables.
The more I think about it, the only way relocating the battery to the trunk would be beneficial would be for auto-x or SCCA-type events. And who the hell runs Bonnevilles in those
I retract my previous statement. For now I will keep the battery where it is. My custom-built battery cables aren't holding up as good as I would have liked, so I am going to redesign those, maybe lead-reinforce the cable-to-terminal points.
