    We had used painless on the first 3 or 4 dragsters. The last one we decided to go K&R. After using the K&R set up, I will not go back to painless. The instructions are easy to follow, nice chart for those the like to see the layout versus having to read the instructions and great customer service if you need to call.

    I have the Biondo Mega Dial Panel with the dial board all built in. It was real easy to install and has been flawless. I dont have any experience with the K&R but it looks very similar. Here is a link to both.

    I have used a couple of Painless set ups. But from what I've seen of the K & R harnesses, I think I'm going with K & R next time.

    Thanks for your opinions. I see a lot of dragsters using K&R, I run a door car is it the same set up? I looked on there site and there is a panel box for the roll bar also they say the kit comes with a new solenoid, why is that? Thanks again. Mike

    comes with a ford solenoid so you only have to run the main wire to the starter.
