Hi all,

I found this item on another site(sorry admin's) but I thought it would be a good addition to many race cars and add simplicity and ease of function that is protected. Let me know what you think about this piece, I just got mine and it is one nice piece. Here is some info.

It has 5 40 and 5 20 amp relays. Each circuit individually fused. LED indicators on the inputs and outputs. Apply 12V on the input turns on the relay. Besides the 10 input and 10 output connections it only requires a small ground and the battery feed. It’s 4.8 by 9 inches.

Here is one in a guys 65 Chevy Deuce that he sold, but a nice installation.John

That is on the concept of the K&R just doesn't have as much.

have you looked at the K&R system?

I'm not a real big fan of using relays on a race car. What you wind up doing is turning each circuit into two circuits which IMHO is double trouble if something goes wrong at the track, ie, the relay horks up, etc.! With one wire from the fuse panel, to a switch, then to whatever you're controlling makes it very simple to trouble shoot.

K.I.S.S.!

I changed it just over a month ago and ran it 3 weekends sense, really no difference just looks cleaner for resale value. If I needed a switch panel I'll buy the K&R next time ... downfalls to this relay board is how the wire goes in there is to small IMO and the mounts need to be rubber and not metal. But for what it cost its a great deal.

I haven't seen the one from them Ron, got any pics????

Ken, I understand your comment, and agree with the theory of keeping things simple, I just have fuse blocks here, and there, and wires that look like spaggetti under my dash :- So, I thought I would try to clean things up and try this as well. I can always go back to pretty much what I had, but I am going to trust this guy who makes these parts, he has his poop together, and uses some good parts to make this circuit board. He uses the same parts the Ambulances use and Police cars and Fire Trucks so it can't be all that bad, and he has zero returns or problems with what he has out in the field already, street and strip. I thought the same way a few years back "Too much to go wrong with", but I will give it a try and see what happens since my electrical system is getting a little more complicated when I add nitrous, a delay timer and a trans brake box to hold off the nitrous until I release the t-brake button. I will let you know if it pops later on ;-)

John

Here is a K&R Relay Board
Image


This kit also comes with almost all the wire to wire the entire race car, its labeled from front to back, comes with a complete wiring diagram, zipties, connectors,heat shrink, the switch panel has ground,12v,and ign 12v on terminals on the back of it. Also has a int light on the bottom of it.

Looks pretty good from what I can see, and I can see your point on the wiring inputs being too small for the wires vs this one from K&R, how much do they want for there stuff??? Thanks for the pics also. =;

no prob on pics .. I wire a few cars a year so its not biggie

The kit is kinda spendy 475.00 but if you had to buy a switch panel, relay board and all the wiring your not to far off it.
