Thrill,
The Optima boxes are or should be smaller than what you have now.

The optima is about 1 1/2 shorter than a regular battery. Thats why a regular cheap battery hold down wont work.

You should look into the new Optima Blue Tops that are group 31 size. They fit in typical race tiedowns and have far more reserve power. In Tampa I can get anyone a deal on batteries gut they are now worth shipping due to weight.
