Where do you like to mount your battery?

I have mine high up in the right rear, just a tad forward of the rear axle. It exits the tray toward the middle of the car. Anyone else?

Behind the rearend in front of fuel cell if you can,and in the center unless you want added weight to one side.

If you can put the car on scales and see the difference it makes on tail weight.Sometimes little things like that makes a difference ?A battery is free tail weight because it's something you have to have.As the lifting of the left rear I dont think it's going to make much difference.Good Luck

harris puts thers oin the right side above the axl
but i have seen many cars have it to the left rear to help with left side and rear percent
it really depends on what yer scales read aas to where u want to mount it

The battery on my car is in the center
in front of the fuel cell. and does anybody
know is it better to use those dry cell batteries or the wet ones i was woundering if the acid would spill out in or on a rough ride.

that terminals are front to back(it keeps
plates from touching in corners)dragsters
