I remember seeing a kit for $39, but I am not sure where I saw it. I just know it was 39 bucks. I would GUESS that it is available at summit.

But yeah, you can do it yourself with some welding cable.

I recently moved my battery to the trunk..... the big difference that i have noticed since is when i slam the brakes the car does not want to try to pull itself to the right anymore.. like if it evened itself out.. it also helped in my cornering ability.. as far as traction, i can't tell ya, have only been to the track once in my life.... hope this helps bud!

You need either a sealed box, or a sealed battery (optima) if you plan on running at the track, along with a cut off switch.

Summit sells two kits, one for about $50 and a sealed NHRA approved one for about $90. I believe that they both come complete with everything you need. I am installing the cheaper one with an Optima Red top next weekend so I'll let ya know how much work it is.

no. if you're running a battery in the back, you must have a switch. it doesn't matter what times you're running.

I have my battery in the back and have been told at the track in Miami Fl that i CAN run like that, and i have run like that. I asked when it would be applicable that i need a kill switch they told me only if i am running faster than 12 or something i forgot.. maybe the rules differ in your area..???

If it is a NHRA track and follow those rules, if a battery is in the trunk, there has to have a external cut off swith. Some tracks will not enforce the rule on a test & tune night. The battery has to be vented to the outside and have a barrier between the trunk & interior of the car.
