Nope... those things are dangerous!!! My Fox will have so much performance that I don't worry about weight! ::)

Seriously, I didn't need to lose any weight in the nose, so it's a regular AGM battery for me. If I were to go Lithium though, it would probably be Earth X at this point in time. Definitely Lithium Iron, and a built-in BMS would be mandatory, but even so I'm still not really comfortable with the technology (or the price).

So let the spanking begin... no pictures please.
