That's a good article, thank you for posting it.
I generally go with welding cable for a few of the reasons mentioned in the article but also because it seems to be more consistent to the actual advertised gauge of the wire and true copper, not copper clad etc. Unfortunately there is a lot of wire on the market that is overrated (doesn't flow at it's advertised size) and looks correct if you don't know what to look for.
This is all really good advice. Thank you, you guys!
the ford solenoid does add complexity to the system.....yes. Depends on the function of the vehicle. If it's street driven MOST would consider it mandatory to have a "cold" cable to the starter. If its "race only" its considered LIMITED exposure therefore readily acceptable to run a "hot" cable to the starter.
I looked into both setups and came to the same conclusion - solenoid setup for a car that's primarily street driven, kill switch for one that spends more time at the track.
You mentioned this is for SCCA and to pass their tech inspection , do they require a accessible Batt disconnect switch ???
Honestly, I don't know. Does any one know if SCCA requires the external battery disconnect switch?
If I got this kit, what else would I need?
Also, would it be better to run a Ford solenoid instead of the battery disconnect?
