75mm2 isn't 0awg by the way it is in between 00 and 000 awg, 0 awg is approx 50mm2, I like your thinking but it is serious overkill can't hurt though.

Just remember if you're running a battery in the rear to fuse at both ends near the batteries....

Keep up the good work....

All fused at less than a foot from each battery JJ - I know 0awg is approx 50mm but there is a lot of ambiguity in labeling - shok label this as 0 gauge but there cable is CCA not OFC so it may be an 'equivalency' thing.

Probably is overkill but for 4 meters or so of cable run what's a few dollars more? (Besides it looks cool!)

Thanks for the kind words all

At least voltage drop won't be an issue
