Tuesday Tech Question


I have a Pro Street style 1964 Chevy II that I drive on the street and would like to take it to my local NHRA Track on their Test & Tune nights.  I have moved the battery to the trunk and was told that I need a battery shutoff on the back of the car.  Is this true?

Battery Box Billy,


Yes it is.  In the 2012 NHRA Rulebook section 4A, E. T. Handicap Racing, page 7, Electrical: 8, Master Cutoff it states “Mandatory on any car with a battery running 9.99 (6.39) or quicker, any car exceeding 135 mph, or on any car where the battery is relocated into the trunk area.”
