    f355 rear clip removable?

    My rear clip seems to be a bit different than the others out there. The convertible top tray, etc are all part of the rear clip. This makes it impossible to get to the battery etc. the battery is not a big deal but access to throttle body etc is. Has anyone made their rear clip removable or hinged? would it be too weak?
    What was I thinking??!!  I could have a VR4 Spyder for this kind of money.

    Tell us a bit about the kit (manufacturer etc). Photos will always help.

    I mounted my battery up front and it seems to work out better there.

    More details and pictures of your kit will help a lot. On my first build which was an IFG clone, I had just enough room to get the battery in but it wasn't something I would want to change if I didn't have to. I plan on moving the battery on my Ad355. You should be able to use any universal battery relocation kit.

    I've been able to get the battery out of my AD355, but I plan on putting it up front. There's no room for an 18" spare anyway.
