Hi guys

 

My XR6 Turbo had a battery relocation done upon tune and the workshop used an ANTZ battery relocation kit. After having this for 2 years and seeing my batter sway back and forward, the material that ANTZ make the battery tray out of has to much flex and I'm not a fan. 

 

I'm looking to make my own with stee/metal that has no flex. The tray is flat and then it has one centre piece to hold the tray up. Like I said, I aint a fan. My battery has rocked a few times and that shouldn't happen. 

 

Has anyone made their own battery tray or modified the ANTZ tray to give more rigidity and strength???????

how do you know it has swayed? on the dyno?

 

I think it would be easier to just brace the tray you've got than make another one completely...

Wire and a field likely, I just like the appearance of the aluminum kit on LMR however I've found a number of these battery holders on amazon for not a horrific price, thinking about simply parting it out alternatively.

I read the replies on the thread early on boys but didn't get a chance to reply until now. 

With the battery tray, because of the way ANTZ have the tray propped up just by one support in the centre and also because the metal tray can be flexed, the battery can be rocked with pressure forward and back. 

I worked out the easiest fix is to drill 2 bolt holes into the tray and make a support and drill that into the engine bay metal (small screws). Should work a charm. Just have to get a flat bar of metal and I should be set!
