Video: Racepak Street Smartwire Saves You A Bundle

When it comes to wiring your car from scratch, it can be a mixed blessing. On one hand you aren’t doing battle with existing confusing bundles and harnesses of possibly decaying or confusingly labeled wires, but on the other hand, you are dealing with a blank slate.

With a blank canvas to wire, you are left with options to do it any number of ways. If you prescribe to the old-school of thought, you’ll be mounting buss bars, fuse blocks, and integrating things like relays and circuit breakers. A clean wiring job goes a long way towards a professional look under the hood or dash. In a racecar, a clean electrical installation helps make troubleshooting problems quick and simple.

Racepak

Conventional switch blocks are becoming a thing of the past in favor of key pads to control all the electrical systems of a racecar. Racepak has offerings to cover your needs there too.

Racepak has been on the forefront of performance automotive electrical needs, and is here to simplify what used to be an intimidating and tedious task. Condensing all those previously individual electrical components into one clean box is their Street Smartwire kit. This power distribution module (PDM) acts as the electrical clearing house for all your wiring. Users can say goodbye to stand-alone fuse blocks or breakers and instead take control of programmable inputs and outputs.

These fields add up to a 125 amp total capacity and are divided among 12 inputs and 30 outputs. If you’re running additional electronic motorsports systems like data loggers and digital dash read-outs, the Smartwire also connects to those aides.
