This looks like a worthwhile project if it can shave several pounds of high-up weight.

A regular automotive style battery has a pair of very heavy sturdy terminal which the vehicle leads are bolts to. Batteries like the one in the picture do not.... could cranking an engine over heat up the leads and/or terminals? Maybe even melt them? I'd guess there's a lot of amps being drawn through there when cranking

I haven't had any problem with that yet. The smaller battery doesn't crank long enough to build up that kind of heat. It's good for one shot only, but for me the weight savings and extra air flow was worth it.
Cool. Just the cogs in my mind grinding over.....
