    but you are moving a say ~40lb battery...

    so -40lbs off the front and move it to the back, is like adding 70-80lbs over the rear.

    the cables prolly weigh 3-4lbs is .003 that much? no. not nearly what you'll get as far as traction goes off the line. an 80lb transfer is going to improve a 60' time much more than thousands of a sec.

    not to mention, makes a great place to put your spray.

    2001 M6 SS - few mods...

    I know guys that pull 3-4lbs out of the car everyplace that they can. They also cut 1.3 sixties with the batteries in the front.

    thats all good and well, ive got a car that doesnt use a battery, has sub 1sec 60' times. but you gotta trailer it to the track.

    cutting weight out of a race car is something diffent than cutting and saving on a street car.

    hell, my SS ran a 7.64 with a full tank of gas, 2 10"s 3 amps, tools in the back seat and the windows down, and i drive it to work every day

    I thought about doing that too, because you still have the hatch button to open it ! I've never used the trunk key...
