Stylin'

Nice work -- gettin' jiggy wit it. How much would an S2000 button run? I'm sure it's a hot item. One question -- in the photo with the labels, under the red word "Loop", is that your TC switch, or a hidden kill-switch for theft prevention?. Good stuff. Just don't put butter on your burn -- pisses me off when people do that.

That's nice and everything

That's nice and everything but a S2000 button on the dash or shifter would of been mad tyte.

BTW, you added some weight to your car with this *gasp*

I'd love to have a ignition button like that but I have too many nitrous wires and alarm wires running in that area. Intellegent key owns.

I was going to jab at you about that, but C-888 beat me to it.

Also, I realized something. This will make for an easier re-start when coasting. As an auto driver (as you realize), I have to either reach over with my left hand to start and right hand to shift to D, or really pay attention. I assume that the key switch can remain in the "On" position and just the push of a button gets you re-started. I may do this close to the shifter a la Saab.

I've been trying it more and more lately -- basically slide it into Neutral and you can start it anytime and shift back to D whenever. Park and Neutral both have circuits to allow startup.

$40 for a freakin' push button??? I was afraid of that -- I've got one in my basement from Radio Shack that I paid 99-cents for 5 years ago (I might even have a 30-amp DPDT relay as well). Hmmm...
