    I would like to mention a very important safety tip! A starting motor can draw between 120 and 230 amps depending on the type of motor. That looks like a Turnigy 2200 Mah 3s battery. Those are rated to pull around 100 AMPS MAX. And that is at full charge.

    It's a 6S 3000mah Turnigy. One cell bad so its 5S. After connecting wait 15 seconds before starting. That 15 seconds charges the lead battery enough to where both bateries together start the motor.

    Agreed. However, this wouldn't be used to cold crank an engine, I suspect it would be there to push a weak battery on a cold day along a little?

    Please be careful doing this - you are bypassing the fuses which are there for a very good reason, and putting an unfused live feed into your vehicle cockpit. There's a very real risk of fire when modifying electrical systems, particularly when safety devices like fuses are bypassed.

    Yes understood but car circuit is still fused. New wires are insulated and connectors are covered. Starting a car has no fuse. Inverters have circuit breakers or fuses in them.
