Battery cutoff needed for battery relocate?

Postby ohisofly » Tue Sep 23, 2014 1:02 pm

Just wondering if a cutoff on the back of the car is needed for a battery relocate (per regulations); I plan on doing auto x and drag racing once my car is done

most likely yes, locally you do need a cut off and also vent if not sealed battery

Definitely for drag. Autox is a little more local; places can be sticklers, but you should be able to get away with no box if sealed (required even if it's sealed per regs), but no one should worry you about on outside cutoff.

Ive been to a few events and track days which have rules for external cutoffs if the battery had been relocated, my local track even having a rule on the hardware that bolted it to the car. With that being said, with every event and track day and tech inspection ive went through, not one person has mentioned my car not having an external kill, and let me go on my way and race.

My battery is a sealed Agm battery with very sturdy cradle bolted to the floor and obvious fusing close to it, so it looks proper.

Thanks for the input guys. As of now I'm going to attempt mounting the battery (stock 51 series) behind the front bumper, but if I end up putting it in the car then I may put a cutoff on it

Have you decided on a battery yet? I am in the same boat, i want a sealed AGM battery. Have heard optima's quality has gone down hill a bit.

I ended up putting the stock size battery where the washer tank goes
