Nope. But why are they there? For charging purposes?

Not sure how he is set up, but most drag cars don't run an alternator or anything... no charging system. They just run a hot battery. We always put the battery charger on between runs to keep the battery topped off.
I think he's got an Alt unless he's removed it.

Or are they the emergency shut off?


Congratulations on the award George! :thumbs:
my battery is in a enclosed box underneath the bed and not possible way to charge battery. The hassle of crawling under truck to place a jumper box on the Kill switch is a pain so i added charging posts on the roll pan. One i had a hole there from the spare tire which was ugly so added the terimnals there. Its easy this way, i do plan to change it out when i go steel roll pan but for now its what got to work with

I see. So its more or less for maintaining the battery when the truck sits.

I'm glad you specified "metric ton" and not just a ton. Big difference. :jester:
