    If you are racing, arm it first. Then let the wot switch turn it on.

    Yes, you are running a WOT switch right?

    Use either a WOT switch or a TPS-based switch. I have my arming switch in the ashtray and use the old-fashioned WOT switch.

    Even if you have a wide open throttle switch I'd run a hand held switch in the circuit. The WFO switch by itself SUCKS!!! The biggest problem is that if you spin the tires which more than likely you will you have to get off the gas or try to find the togglr switch which isn't happening. If you have a button in your hand you can stay full throttle and pulse the button for traction or wait a 100 feet or so and grab the kit again.
    Most people that say not to run a button are not nitrous people. That is one of the first things I change on ALL my customers cars and they have all been happy with how much bettert they cab=n control their tire spin.
    That's my 2 cents. But I've only been playing with the bottle for 15 years.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    I would never run a hand-held switch. Especially with a M6. If you are having traction issues, fix that or use a progressive controller.

    Well he already stated it was a A4 car I thought. And if your on the street with a "fast" car your not hooking regardless. So I'll stick to my button. Haven't had any problems in the past 15 years.......Yet
    And most of my cars are clutches.
    I guess it's what your used too and how good you are with hand eye going down the track.

    I just don't want to see a newbie using only a push button. Thats one more thing you have to thing about when racing. Trying to let go of the button and shift.
