I want to move my battery to the trunk this winter.But in order to race it I need to have an ON/OFF or kill switch on the outside.
But I dont think it looks right on a 14.9second car.My car is on the street 95% of the time.
Any idea's or opinions on this.

I've seen some folks install their ON/OFF switch behind their license plate. When they're at the track, they remove their license plate to expose the switch.......
Just an idea!

Scoop,
I think the on/off switch on the rear of the car would look great, it would make people think the car must be seriously fast especially with the SCOOP in the front. They won't know it's a 14.9 car and that way you can still race it when you want. Or hide it under the license plate like Ryan suggested. Let us know where you end up putting it. I just got a battery kit for Christmas so I have to figure out where to put the switch also. (I have to powder coat it Red 1st) I am also thinking about installing the exterior posts to be able to charge the car from outside

You can implement an on/off switch with a "pull-on/push-off" set-up. Moroso (for one) has a kit for adapting the usual battery disconnect switch to push/pull operation. If you did this, you could have a small hole in the rear panel, and only attach the thread-on push/pull rod when you are at the track. On the street, just put a small rubber plug in the hole. Presto-chango, street to track.

Alex, I hope the safety team can find the switch if they need to.....

Yeah, I have a BIG "push off" sign on the

Go to Flaming RIver's website also Scoop.
That's the one I use.

Is the kill switch required only if your battery is relocated? Or is it required just to race at all?

The kill switch is only required if you relocate the battery.

Do you guys wire it so it kills the alt,too?
Or just the battery?
Like the pull,push idea,where I could remove the level and cover the hole.So at the cruise nights most people wouldn't notice it.
Now if my car ran 12's or better I'd have alarge ON/OFF on there all the time.

Ron,

The switch has to kill the engine, so yes you have to run the alt. wire to the switch too. For NHRA/IHRA anyway,

yup, and it has to be connected to the battery side of the switch or the alt will keep the car running.

Hmmm...

My car has had the battery relocated to the trunk for years now. I've never even been asked about a on/off switch! You definitely won't find the one on my car, because it doesn't exist!

I think it's kind of silly to require one on a 14 second car. Are you SURE it's a requirement?

Good Luck!

When you race sanctioned, organized racing, full tech and saftey inspections by trained, certified tech people are mandatory.
A relocated battery requires a switch as per NHRA and IHRA rules. Rule enforcement is only as good as those who do the inspecting.
Outlaw and back woods tracks are notoriuos for lax tech and the consequenses are almost always near fatal. Some of the worst tech inspections I have ever seen have been at the few NMRA and FWC events I have been to.

I put the on/off switch through my license plate, and you can't see it unless your looking for it. I didn't want a on/off switch either, but safety are important.
My car only ran 14.99 last year.

Mike, you may want to add one to your car, even if the tracks you run at don't inspect for it. Reason is if you are in a wreck and can't get out, a safety team or anybody will AUTOMATIClly look for this switch at the rear of the car. It could keep raw fuel from feeding a fire, etc.. I have to have a manual cable fuel shut off located just inside the driver compartment because I run a belt drive fuel pump. Seriously consider putting this in.

You've got a point...

I just hate to have my car look like some sort of drag car.

I'm a sleeper kind of guy.

I'll probably add one...

Hmmm, install one where the track monkeys will clearly be able to see it, or hide it? MM said his was hard to find. I think to really do much good, it would have to be out in the open...

I'll have to think about it. I don't really like the idea of having two electric fuel pumps gushing fuel everywhere in the event of a crash.

Thanks!

It does seem odd to me that cars with the battery in front DON'T need a on/off switch. What's different?

Scoop, you could also install the switch inside a spare taillight unit, or reverse lite lens. That way if you ever wanted to go back to a stock appearance, you wouldn`t need to fill any extra holes.

Ron,

Did you see the switch on Melissa's
'66? Just a 20something dollar Summit deal in the rear taillight panel. The panel was cherry too when we decided to drill it and add the switch. It looks pretty good if I say so myself. The car isn't a "sleeper", but then again neither is yours with that big scoop.

Scoop,there`s about 8 or 9 cars in my area that run the switch out the back and have that orange tag on the handle. the 1 guy i talked to said it`s an intimidation factor. i prefer it to be unnoticable,that sleeper set up is the way to go in my opinion. just my .02

Rory to late for me to worry about extra holes in my car.

SteveW the switch on the 66 looked great.Do you really think people notice my scoop.

Keith,At this point for my car sleeper is not an option.

I think I'm going to just put the switch on the light panel.Right beside the little flag that says remove before flight.
