That's what she said. But seriously yeah, wow that is tiny.

BTW very nice electrical installation. I like it. Where did you get the switch panel that's on the console? It looks better than the Longacre panel.

The switch panel is part of the painless race relay/switch kit 50005. It looks nice, but it's expensive for what it is. The smartwire would have probably been a better choice, but don't want to burn more money than I already have.

The starting problem came back. Actually, it never left. At least now I can log it since ECU power doesn't cut out. I need another weekend to figure this out. Not going to get much done at work with this on my mind.

I fixed the starting issue and mounted a battery box. Bought the NOCO HM082 U1-sized box which fits the LiFe batteries and weighs ~1 lbs. The Pb battery is just there to keep the ECU powered when it's parked.

You need a box for LiPoly in your class? Wow. I don't think I've seen a racing organization require a box for an LiPoly battery in the drivres compartment ever, from SCCA to NHRA. Is this a NASA or Formula D thing?
