I don't have a spare tire and I don't really want one. What have people done to fill the hole? I was looking to buy foam and cut out places for that slime and a 12v tire compressor. Any ideas?

I had some 2x2 CF cloth around. So I decided to make a diffuser.









It still needs a few more layers and a final sand job. And then I will start on the strakes next week.

So for now it is a silly a looking CF cover.

I have my two dry cells in the spare tire well as it's the lowest point to mount for weight distribution. Shifting weight off the nose of the car is a good thing.

Not when the car isn't running.. That's just max lean for the gauge.

^You are correct. It's a sticker that one of the vendors sell. Think it's GrimmSpeed.

This is not a diffuser, you just covered the bottom of the bumper skin in CF

I had my passenger seat out for something else and decided that it'd be cool to move my battery to that location. Soooo, I did it. In the next few days, I'll add a breaker just in case. If this mod were planned out at all, I would have started with a breaker in hand.

Why the entire bracket, and not just screw the angle brackets straight into the car floor?

Does the seat still fit properly over that setup?

I wanted to use existing mounting points, and I had aluminium leftover from other projects, so I made that bracket.

This setup is very secure, and the seat fit without issue.

At some point, I might take out the carpet to remove the tar sound deadening. If I end up doing that, I might drill through the floor and revise this so that I can reduce complexity.

So what happens when it breaks and battery acid is all over in your car? Thought about this too I want to do it just not to sure?

It won't. I have a lot of personal experience with these batteries and my car is the most tame application I have ever put one in. I have seen them short and I have seen them take literally hundreds of fairly serious impacts. What I have never seen is a serious failure.

+1, I'm curious.

Isn't there a law about batteries in the cabin? Maybe its just a state thing.

Judging by the print on the side of the battery, I'm going to guess it's a powerfit es18-12.

I think the "battery in the cabin" rule applies to non-sealed batteries, i.e. the ones you can't lay on their side. Or is that just a racing rule?

^As for the worry about spilling factor, I've been wanting to move my Mustang battery to the trunk and will likely get a sealed box like this:
