Also I have read through many threads and seen many different ways to do it guys

Including kits and just homemade ways of relocating it

But I would just like to see an overall opinion of what people think is the best way

Thanks

If you want an easy and free way to do it, just cut the stock battery tray in half long ways and mount that in the space just in front of the cab under the hood. Fits in there nicely and allows you to use the stock straps. The battery sits in the same position as the Werty Made one just without the servo winch mount.

Axial Racing - Step By Step Wraith Kit Build – Part VII – Electronics Install

This is where I saw it first. It's easy, works great and it's free.

*edit*
Sorry, posted at the same time as your last response. I suppose the aluminum one would be more sturdy but honestly I've never had any trouble. Mine has taken some big tumbles with that battery setup and never had any problem.

I like the Crawler Innovations one. It looks awesome. Delrin Construction. A Great Price at $9. Molded to fit Carter Fab Front Inner Fenders. They are awesome.

Traxxas battery clamp pins for a rustler and zip ties. You really only need a box if you are using soft case lipos

I have a Werty Made Wraith electronics tray and I really like it! Very well made, and it fits nice and tight. It also setup to incorporate a servo winch.
I think it's $14 shipped.
He's a vendor right here on RCC.

As far as trays go, mine is a low price plate. If you want the Cadillac of battery forward plates, look up BCP Chassis's battery forward plate.
