Hey guys, I am not sure if this is true or not, but i was told recently that NHRA changed the ruling for battery cut off switch (for real mount set up). I have a on/off right now, but was told I now need a push/pull type switch, just verifying because I'm close to finishing my car... thanks, aight peace :chicken:

You are best off contacting NHRA directly regarding this rule. I have never heard of it and it sounds silly to me. A flip switch is just as easy to operate as a push / pull.

I think someone just gave you some wrong information.

There is nothing about it in the NHRA 2007 rule books.

8:4 MASTER CUTOFF
Mandatory when battery is relocated or on any vehicle running
9.99 or quicker. An electrical power cutoff switch (one only) must
be installed on the rearmost part of each vehicle and be easily
accessible from outside the car body. This cutoff switch must be
connected to the positive side of the electrical system and must
stop all electrical functions, including magneto ignition. The off
position must be clearly indicated with the word “OFF.” If switch is
“push/pull” type, “push” must be the action for shutting off the
electrical system, “pull” to turn it on. Any rods or cables used to
activate the switch must be minimum 1/8-inch diameter. Plastic or
keyed switches prohibited.
