Hi,

Just wanted to run something past you. I need to make a relay board for my drag car and was looking to do something similar to the attached picture. I was looking to provide power for the relays by the way of 2 x busbars (one live and one live switched), and was going to use fused relays to try and keep everything a little tidier. The rest of the loom came with my Ecu setup and is complete and functional and I just need this to complete it as it was previously relying on a bit of a mess of a chopped stock loom/fusebox for power etc which is now in the bin.

My question really is is this the best/correct way of going about this. Are there any drawbacks to fused relays? Are crimped spade connectors to connect to the relay pins the ‘right’ way to do it? I have seen some you can buy with neat block connectors but they come pre pinned with standard size wire so I wouldn’t be able to adjust the gauge of wire for the application. I’m going to be pinning plugs at the other end of this for the fan/fuel pump/nitrous etc. I didn’t see anything in the fundamentals course to cover this specifically so thought best to ask.

Sorry if this is a silly question but I’d rather ask and get it right first time.

Hello yes this way is fine, if using fused relays make sure they are mounted as to not be able to work lose ( so vertical is best )

crimping spade terminals has worked for years so no issues there

Thanks Ross
