Heavy-Duty Dash Switches
Don't be let down by low-quality switches! Losing a race because a cheap switch failed is no savings. Our toggle switches are rated at 15 amps and have contacts of solid, fine silver for maximum reliability.* Mounting hardware is furnished.
* Except part numbers starting with LA, which have silver-plated contacts.
In 2004, I rebuilt my Formula Ford, including fresh wiring and new switches from a local electronics supply store. At the car's fourth race that season, the engine just refused to start. I cranked until the jumper battery was almost dead, but it never started. I switched off the ignition and watched helpless as the rest of the field pulled away from the grid. In desperation, I switched the ignition back on and hit the starter -- the engine fired immediately! After only three races, the cheap ignition switch had already begun to fail. Even when the switch was turned on, sometimes it wasn't really switched on. I had tried to save a couple of dollars on the ignition switch, but it almost cost me a DNS. Don't make the same mistake!
