Battery switch is needed if the battery is relocated, regardless of et/mph. But, your argument is still valid...it's not really the ET that's gonna get ya, it's the MPH (especially in the 1/8 mile?!)...for example, our '69 only runs high 11s on skinny tires, at 118mph...but, our '70 Chevelle runs high 10s, but only at mid-low 120s and requires a bar.
