Major weight savings here maybe?

Not sure if this would be the right one for our cars or not but they have others on their site. All weigh just 5lbs

I'm not sure with the traction issues the x35i suffers from, you would really want to pull any weight from the rear. Also the battery location darn near perfectly offsets the weight of a driver.

This is an extensively researched subject on the forum. Your first Google result on the "lightweight battery" term is not the most fortunate choice

Read this thread:

And YES, there are many benefits with lightweight batteries when drag racing your car.
