Default Battery Cut-Off

Can you put in a battery cut-off switch under the hood if your only using 1 battery ??
I do not have 1 in the trunk.

For Stock Elim.


Thx

If you did not relocate the battery a switch is not needed. But you can run one if you want.
My battery is in the stock location. But I have a fuel pump cut off coming out of the tail light.
It's a fuel injected car, so once you hit the switch the engine shuts off.

Pete, I use the Moroso shut off that goes right on the battery post. I always shut it off when done for the day or between races, I consider it good insurance.

Pete -
If you do use a battery switch make sure the amp rating is high enough so you don't burn up your starter - I've seen the cheaper ones that will only carry 400 amps.
