To stop batteries coming out from hits, get the stick pack guides on the car, have a look at what needs dremeling off and them grind them off until the batteries sit in the car without touching the guides. I did this and it has worked flawlessly. Use the 2 inner pieces aswell, stops the batteries going into the shaft.

this means you don't need to crank the battery strap,possibly tweaking the chassis.

I ground off the lugs on the underside of the guides, then installed it backwards so the flat side faced the battery.

No grinding required.

And have never lost a pack.

Have a Mazda 6 with the painter. Will definitely have better steering and handling characteristics. Mount it up immediately!

Why ask the "which body" question? Read above^
Your touring car body isn't just for show.

A cheaper "redneck like" solution is to use a cable tie around the battery and the battery strap, usually one in the middle will keep it in place but you could use 2 if need be.
