Now I have to install a battery cut off switch. Is this true? At all tracks.



While I got you here maybe you can tell me the rules about having a nitrous bottle in a hatch back.

Yes to the cutoff switch. IHRA and NHRA require it. As for the nitrous, you'll need a relief valve vented outside the car. If the bottle overpressures it won't release inside the car.

Make sure the kill switch shuts off the ignition also and just does not kill the battery. Tech got us like that once. They said start your car, and I did and then the dude flipped the switch and the car kept running. He let us run but said next time you won't pass tech.

Anyone can sit in the stands and talk s**t. Get out there and RACE!!!

You have to run the alt. output to the battery side of the kill switch, make sure you run heavy wires too, I ran 8 gauge wire from the alt. to the battery and I'm not having any voltage drop.

the relief valve is on the side of the nos valve, it contains a rupture disk (small thin copper disk set to blow out at around 1750 lbs). without the relief valve , there is no place to connect a line to vent the nos outside the car if the disk lets go. I think the relief has a -8 flare on it and it connects to a tube that goes outside the car. The bottle has to be empty to put the relief on.Just unscrew the existing relief and put the new one on, REPEAT---- the bottle must be EMPTY
