If the battery has been relocated from its original installed position, a remote mounted kill switch needs to be installed. It needs to be on the rear of the car, and can not be the removable key type. The way it needs to be done for Hondas (yours is a dodge I understand, but should be same), you have to intercept the charge wire from in between the alternator and the underhood fuse box. The cut-off needs to be inline with those so that when the switch is thrown, the 12v running the ECU is gone, and the car shuts down. The best style I have seen for doing this, so that you don't have to run a bunch of heavy wiring back and forth through the car is the one Tony Palo (T1 Race Development) sells. I will post a link when I get home. The work computer is not liking his website right now. I also have the 2010 or 2011 NHRA rulebook, I will take a picture and post the battery section on here for you as well.

nice, i run MS, so my MS controls everything, including power to alt. so looks like all i need is like u said, an interrupt via switch to kill my MS. i like the one posted, but i was looking at a push button style as well.. wonder if it still complies..

Default Re: remote battery kill switch

2010 rulebook:

MASTER CUTOFF

Mandatory when battery is relocated, or as outlined in Class Requirements.

An electrical power cutoff switch (one only) must be installed on the rearmost part of each vehicle and be easily accessible from outside the car body. This cutoff switch must be connected to the positive side of the electrical system and must stop all electrical functions including magneto ignition.

The off position must be clearly indicated with the word “OFF.” If switch is “push/pull” type, “push” must be the action for shutting off the electrical system, “pull” to turn it on. Any rods or cables used to activate the switch must be minimum 1/8-inch diameter. Plastic or keyed switches prohibited. Switches and/or controls must be located behind rear wheels on rear-engine dragsters.
