sounds like he needs to experience the 2.5!!!

I do pit crew for some guys running chump that help on my crew, its hard to get enough guys to come up with the money to go to events like that when you live in a town of guys that would rather sleep than work!

we have been working on getting one of the local series to attempt some road races (2hr sprints) so the guys that want to do it but don't have the support of drivers can!! if anyone in southern wisco or n, Killinois want more info ill pass it on.

so what tires is everyone running?
we ran falken azenis for awhile on the ovals
now they implemented a $60 tire rule???
(my other car runs hoosier s800)

Do you happen to have so pics of how your ignition is set up??? I'm going to be running a focus on a 1/4 mile oval and a 3/8 mile and curious as to how people are setting up the ignitions and kill switches.

Starting\ignition for us is stock key and harness. Need the key for the PATS so we figured there was no point turning the starter\ignition into a button\switch.

As for the kill switch we have hooked the battery and the post that has the large, single red wire on the alternator, to the hot side of the kill switch. That way when we throw the switch in an emergency (we shut down with the key first otherwise) both sources of power are isolated from the rest of the car.

So far in out tests with it setup with way we have run into zero issues.
