Well isn't that a kick in the scrotum.
It's amazing what some people will steal, "oooh, that's a purty red color, let's take it".



wow.
Have you looked around the area, maybe they dropped it close?

Perhaps you have a neighbour that doesn't like the rumble of your car and knew that you couldn't start it without it and they stole it so they wouldn't have to put up with your racket...

of couse you are going to get dinged when you are driving around flashing your big-shot rally car all over the place. You can do everyone a favor by removing the kill switch yourself. Why do you need it on there? Why do you need the big ol I've hot a huge ..... rally car with a battery kill switch. Get rid of it from the get go.

Pretty cars that people want to touch are a huge PITA to have in public. Don't try to argue that it's not all predictable.

Ridiculous isn't it?

I even had valve caps that I bought at Wal-Mart stolen because they were blue.

Apparently, according to a few members, you are supposed to paint everything Tremclad black to ward off theives.

Probably some punk kid who walked by who stole it. What's with this world nowadays where nothing is safe?

Probably sell it for scrap metal. Pretty sad to say that the state of petty crime here has got to a point where people steal any "scrap metal" - even if it's "bolted down" like a fence, or copper telephone wire while it's still on the pole, etc!

Good luck finding a replacement safety kill switch key aspect.

LaterZ!
