    does battery relocation to the rear, really helps with the car weight distribution?

    why always on the right and not the centre?

    actually, apart from prolonging the battery life if were to place at rear.

    it also did help the weight distribution, I read that in some sites, thought you guys know the pros

    weight distribution, sikit shj... anyway as to why its placed on one side, easy..
    i)space saving (real awkward in the middle)
    ii)cable saving (shorter cable used = less money spent on cables!)
    iii)practicality (best spot id probably in the spare tyre well if it fits, lower + centre but.... comeon i think im the only idiot traveling with no spare)

    not only you, I am wondering why I need a spare tyre..
    since my pcd is totally different.
    spare is 4 holes while current is 5 holes.

    any idea which spare tyre can clear a 4 pot brake kit?
    5 holes only.

    ohhhh u pun sama.... im not sure what issues u face but...
    what 4 pots are you using? gto/aristo 4 pots? or..... brembos.......... some not very thick... no issue

    these are my issues
    -bbk, so yeah clearance is an issue
    -my car has a wheel well for a space saver tyre so yeah, not exactly deep
    -original space saver does not clear callipers
    -went out to look for space savers which do... (there are some models with extra wide brake clearances, look weird as heck) some honda's have em, subaru sti's and evos do as well (check the centre whatucallit hole thing clearance tho)
    -^yay they fit over the calipers.... but dammit, they dont fit the boot :banghead:.... so this is why i do advise people to reconsider bbk's (so check boot space clearance too)

    in your case.... i think the perdana can carry a full size tyre? so dont think its an issue for u.....
    my case, i think i have to just stick with my standard spare and just get an extra thick spacer to clear the brakes
