I use the 2 pole version of this switch for my drag car

Moroso 74101 - Moroso Battery Disconnect Switches - summitracing.com




In NHRA rules you can't use a solenoid because you are sposed to cut all the power off, and if you did that you wouldn't be able to turn it back on!

The problem with using a switch or a solenoid is the continous duty rating, to get one with a high enough rating for these trucks can get expensive.

not really they are in parrallel, so you just switch on the load side of the passenger side battery.

just run them to a relay then to a switch from that and hide it well... or just make it so you cant get key power unless parking lights are on.... if you are trying to jack something your brain is going 100mph you wont get it to start.
