    I'll definately try to make it this year. I didn't at all last year. The year before I had a best time of 15.4, with much of the interior removed. I have since put an overdrive pulley for the supercharger on but the engine has some wear and the clutch needs to be replaced. Soon as I get a new clutch on I'll bring out my car.

    Cheers,
    Berg

    so then whats game for placement? Just has to be clearly visible? Does the car have to die when you pull the kill switch out? or does the kill switch have to be mounted on the alternator so the car will actually stall out?

    You'd have to check the NHRA Rulebook, but I believe it must be an easily accessible external switch that is a master switch - that it, is directly kills all power to all parts of the vehicle when pulled.

    You really need a kill switch for Secret Street? I don't remember seeing a lot of cars out last year with kill switches.

    only if you have relocated the battery from a stock location from what I understand.

    That is correct, Secret Street requires a kill switch if you've relocated the battery.

    clearly visible/ acssesable on the rear of the vehical and it has to kill the car completely so you'll need the 4 post kill switch taylor makes them i think around 70-80 bucks

    that's according to the nhra rulebook

    isn't race city an ihra race track or nothing at all hahah
