Here's one way: Battery Relocation

Try a search (if that feature is working). There should be lots of threads for that here.

That's a great thread
But another great tip(it might be in the thread)
Use 0 gauge welding wire. It bends allot easier.

Kits suck!!! Make your own. Buy a good box, use welding cable from your local welding supply store, use marine type connectors.

Good grounding is the key. Make sure everything is grounded, block to frame, block to body, negative post to frame/block.

You need a cut-off switch if you are going to race NMRA.

Call this guy, and tell him to put together a kit for you. One thing I would suggest is mounting the battery box with spring nuts and threaded rod, like the ones that they use for the front fenders (except larger, I used 3/8ths). That way if you need to remove it for any reason you don't have to drop the gas tank to remove it. If you put it right over the rear axle and the battery dies there is not enough room to take it out without taking the box loose.
