I put the SJM a couple weeks ago and install was easy enough. Hardest part was deciding hot to do the wiring/switches. Was going to go with the cruise control setup mentioned above but went a little different instead. I Used the supplied SJM master switch which I installed under the steering at the bottom of the dash. I then installed a Plasmaglo momentary switch in the cigarette lighter socket for a real covert but functional look. When the master is armed, the Plasmaglo lights up to let you know. Install turned out really clean and I am really satisfied with the SJM quality and performance!

I've decided to get a black switch (about the size of a nickel) with a built in LED, and the shifter switch as the momentary. That way I don't have to drill any holes into the interior of the vehicle.

I gave the shop the details today hopefully I'll get it soon and some decent weather will come so we can finish tuning and install this setup, then I can just enjoy the car for a while before the next project.

I bought the Hurst kit....it was about $20 more than SJM but I like the fact that it mounts up under the master cylinder and out of the way. To me it's more hidden than mounting it up on the front of the passenger fender well.

Everything I've seen and heard about SJM has been great. You should be good with their setup.

I haven't installed mine yet but I'm about to. I've been working out how I want to do it because I don't really want to drill anything if I don't have to. I went by the Auto Parts store the other day and picked up a $2.50 two prong plug for some trailer lights. Right now the plan is to use the plug that I will hide behind my console when I'm not using it. When I go to the track I'll pull out the side with the switch from the glove box and plug it in. I'm thinking about using a remote engine starter as switch since it is designed to be handheld. It's just that a reasonable one is $15-$20 and a good one is about $30. That's more than I really wanted to spend so I'm trying to think up another option for the handheld button. By using the plug I won't need an activation swicth since there is no connection without the plug in place. At least that's the plan for now.

That's a pretty cool idea too. I'd place it in the glove compartment to if I was willing to drill holes. But, I get what your saying, basically just plug it in when you want to use it, and system is hot, then you just engage by pressing the momentary switch.

Yes, I would store the switch side in the glovebox. Get to the track, plug it in, it's hot and ready to go. When you're done just un-plug and throw it back into the glove box. Tuck the other side of the plug behind the console an you'll never see it.

I figure you use it and then after the burn out you just lay it done beside the console in the floor. Again, all just theory at the moment but I'm probabaly going to give that a try.

Something like this.

Cut the end off and put a two prong trailer light plug on it.
