I hope your socket spacers are Snap-On - otherwise people will think you are cheap.  ;-)

With that much amperage you will want to consider running power to a new fuse panel to run the hi current draw accesories. I am running the same style 10si (100 amp) internal regulated. I ran a #6 wire to the  relay and then to a Painless wiring  junction block which feeds the 10 circuit underdash Painless fuse block and also the factory feed to the original fuse panel. The junction block makes it nice as I ran out of room on the relay post as you can see as the Robb MC starter feed needs to be on the hot side of the relay

My solution to this was to install a bank of fused relays in the engine bay picking up power from the battery feed side of the starter relay, the alternator charge wire also connects here. Keeps everything fairly accessible, which is probably a good thing for a race car.

 
I've finally given up drinking for good...........now I only drink for evil.
