So I'm curious as to what kind of protection is in place for the battery from down below. As I understand the side, front and rear impacts are unlikely to damage it due to its central location and being part of the cars superstructure, but damage from below is realistic. If driven outside of smooth asphalt roads like icy roads in winter where a chunk of ice might very well be on the road or if the road is iced and the tire tracks are below the central area meaning that it's not uncommon to get hits to the lower part of the car. Second region would be driving on forest roads to get to some more secluded locations that don't have tarmac or gravel. In those conditions the road does go up and down and might well have stumps or roots from trees that might hit the underside. So the question is what is already in place to protect the most expensive component and what can be added? I know that my Evo X has also some delicate components that can lead to heavy damages and losses I've for example gone for a carbon fiber panzer that is installed below the car. It starts from front bumper protecting it against curb damage and extends to about 2/3 of the car covering the engine underside and therefore most of the possible damage. And I know that it has some serious gouges already from dents from road conditions. So somewhat worried about what could happen to the battery. As I understood from someones comments about delivery there was some battery cover damage from unloading from the truck so that's not helping with the damage anxiety Comments and ideas welcome. If someone can look below their MS to see weather a panzer might be install-able would also help.
