I had the 'best seat in the house' for that one! I was staged on the right lane with co-pilot Wayne. That was some great two wheeling (about 3 seconds) to prevent rolling. MG Man you get the "Save It Skilz" award!


I agree MG man got some real skills 8-) :drinking:

The VW is a 1.4L twin charged engine, and the best time I got with it was a 55.0 second run.

I take full blame for not pulling off that win for the VW sponsors.

Revenge will be sweet though!!

Some of the older cars don't, majority of the new vehicles do! If you (on purpose) disconnect the battery and the car conks out, you don't know if it conked out due to insufficient alternator current, or whether the resulting transients (spikes) caused your ECU to spit out bad data, shutting down the car. It is possible to cause thousands of dollars in damage by disconnecting your battery while the car is running.

not so much spikes, but the ECU relies on sensors.
when they stop reporting voltages, (and they will), the ECU stops sending ignition signals (spark to cylinders).

much FUD here.

the battery poles connect all the wires to the battery and the alternator. you can remove either source but not both.

ie- disconnect the alternator, car runs on battery. (battery light will come on)
--- disconnect the battery, car runs on alternator, battery does not charge. no indication light.

If the positive pole touches the body, a short occurs, possibly blowing a fuse. This is the only way i can see the car cutting off. EFI vehicles cannot run if the ecu has no power.

But the gas pumps will still pump gas!!!

External electrical cut-off switches are used in race applications to cut power from going to the gas pump, lights etc.
