I heard everyone had to have a Remote Electrical Shut off switch @ $650 ???please tell me 'No' or I'm done w/ T/S.
Where did you see that Richie? I didn’t hear about that. Are you talking about the hit a button from the starting line and the car shuts off and chutes deploy deal like the pros have? I can’t imagine that would be required in TS.
Jamie, 'Tractor3' told me, said he heard it from a an 'Elite' chassis builder when he tried to order his window net, I asked are you sure he wasn't talking Pro Mod? he said T/S....I can't believe it either - no word anywhere.....
I would contact D1 Tech, Dave M. or Wayne from the track.
Every year they have a tech meeting before the banquet so if there is a change Wayne would know.
If they do institute that change I don't think you would be alone (NOT running TS).
If it came from CNN or MSNBC IT'S FAKE NEWS.
Man was not built to fly ... That's why he built HEMI's
ALIAS -- BIG KAHUNA
I've got Bob Nixon coming over my place this weekend for a chassis cert party, I'll be sure to ask him....
It's not in the new rulebook or in any of the latest revisions. So I seriously doubt that they would make you have that without any kind of notice.
I can understand the reason/requirement for an electric shut off in a Fuel car, they run magnetos. That might be a new rule for any car using a magneto, frankly I don't know.
If it is a 2020 NHRA requirement for all Top Sportsman cars your Division Head Tech Inspector will know, call him.
there is a new battery shut-off required in PM only, so far.
not a bad idea actually, an electronic relay with a switched ground to disconnect.
the Electrimotion down track RF shut-off is completely different, supposed to shut car off and deploy chutes a specific distance past the finish-line. still required supposedly, not sure it's foolproof though.

off the shelf/built it myself
