Thanks for all the replies!!!!!!!


I will put a relay or toggle where the roost, or my knee, or a bug lol cant get to it.
I will not attatch it to the front plastic though. That is the third time con57
or me have come to a dead stop from the front plastic coming off and ripping the ignition wires off on us.
I was thinking of mounting it to the underside of the front upper frame by the electronics.

Does anyone else lose like all their pop buttons every time they race?
This is getting a little old. I didnt want to drill holes and use lotsa tiestraps but................

Thanks
Jack AKA Mattsdad 57

I still think using the tether for the on/off and kill combined would be the trick set up

no switches at all.

I like that idea!!!!

Can it be done?
Can you make the ignition power on and have the kill switch be functional at the same time using a single teather switch?
The kill switch needs to be an open circuit to trun, and the ignition needs to be closed to run.
Is there a way to do this? ....It would be pretty cool if it will work

sure it's easy with no head lights

bypass the engine kill switch and rout the tether true the ignition, the kill switch is a repetitive switch that is after the ignition any way.

look in the wiring diagram in the manual ans you will see.

Shadey ..... bear with me
but I really suck with electrical stuff.
What do you attatch the two ignition wires to in order for this to work?

Sorry for the stupid question but Im not that great with electrical systems.

OK on the kill switch there is two wires Orange and Orange with wight tracer splice these together to bypass the off switch.

at the ignition switch wiring you will find three wires black with red, black with Orange and brown.
all you need to do is use the black w red and the black w Orange to hook to your tether switch, providing that your tether is a normally closed switch.



the brown works the lights and we will not use in this scenario.
