Kill switch....

Doe anyone know if there is a way to use the same switch as the windows kill swith for an electrical kill switch (like a safety switch for trackdays....yes i know its not according to race regulations but still)?
I was thinking this would be a cool and stock looking feature. Anyone have done it?
Would it be possible.
I mean the one on the picture below

Would be easy enough, just run a wire from your main relay trigger wire to a switch. Kind of pointless though, since that's what the key does too.

I was thinking of wiring it straigth from the battery so as to completely kill power. Like the cut off switch on race cars

Won't work. Battery switches need to handle 100 amps or more, hence why I suggested relay.

Anyway, it's not really "cool". If you want a battery switch, install a battery switch. It won't do anything for you but reset your radio presets and clock.

Yeah i though amps would be too much. I just want to install a switch that looks stock and does the same as the battery switch. Dont like the usual huge switches.
Is there anything better that looks stock that i may be able to use?
