Technically we don't need to use FIA approved ones to race in the VWDRC dude. We are told we must use metal ones and not the ones with the red plastic keys...

Like this one cut off switch

do the red plastic ones break a lot? I bought one years ago and only just found it again in my shed. Was thinking of putting it on my skyline but if they break a lot...

I just don't think they are entirely fit for purpose. Would you want something with a plastic key being needed in a rescue situation...personally from my point of view as someone who could crash whilst racing i like to think that the first person on the scene could use that key and me not think it might break.

I need it for a track car and rules state fia approved red rotary type. Im sure there must be one or two people on this forum that are involved it track racig rather than just drag racing. Using metal ones in drag racing doesn't surprise me due to the fuels that are used.

The plastic ones are good if you get a branded one but there are a lot of cheap ones about that don't last long.
