Contour dual fans in a Mustang????

Has anyone wired one of these fans to a switch without a controller? My car is mostly a track car and I don't need any temp probes to turn the fans on, I want to control them myself and I just need the high speed. I would like to know how to wire it this way.

Thanks
Jim

Definitely wire it with a relay. Those fans probably draw 30-40 amps at switch on and most switches won't handle that for very long. Google relay wiring and you'll find some good diagrams of how to do it. Make sure you use a fuse that is big enough to handle the extra current when it first switches on.
