Default [EVDL] HV fuse placement in Sky/TS traction pack

Hi all -

I am getting ready to upgrade my 96V lead acid pack with a 170 lithium pack,
and had a question about HV fuse placement.

I have 2 Ferraz-Shawmut 500A fuses in my current pack, one in the front
section and one in the back. As many know, these are fairly beefy fuses,
similar to a D-cell in size. The issue is, I have 2/0 cabling between
batteries now, easy enough to put one of these bad boys inline with the
connection. With Lithium prismatic cells however, the connections are now
small straps between tightly packed cells - not really a lot of room for a
HV fuse.

What have folks done for fusing in this case?
