    Not downing your idea but people have been running heavy gauge wire from front to back for many years for big amps. Now from back to front with high voltage for electric vehicles.

    I agree with using the "Ford type" solenoid for the starter and for a different reason.
    IMHO it is the best option for running headers in the AZ desert.
    If you have ever experienced hot starting issues from dead or heat soaked starters solenoids you know what I'm talking about.

    I first purchased this convenient kit from a Tips and Tricks Car Craft / Hot Rod magazine article years ago.. yes before the Internet lol.

    I wired mine so that the heavy cables are only live while starting, used an (efF Oh aRe Dee) relay close to the battery....I have had things go wrong before, haven't lost a vehicle but come really close. When you see the cabling turn red and know that you can't just grab it to get the cable off the battery, it gets your attention.
