You need to use very heavy cables for the interconnect in order to keep resistances very low. In a series of recent battery tests we were amazed at the difference between using, e.g., #4 cable and #1/0. I'd use #1/0 or larger. And, as has been said, the length requirement is minimal, so cost shouldn't be a big concern.
