Default starter box wiring


Got a starter box problem. I keep melting the plastic around the plunger switch. Seems to melt really easy. Not holding the car down that long, I normally just kinda blip the motor until it kicks over but my new RB 10 takes a bit more to get going which has resulted in melted plastic.

I've done a little research and it looks like wiring in a 30amp relay with some heavy duty wire should help with this. I think that the relay needs to be between the motor and the plunger switch but not sure? Has anyone wired one of these up before? Did a bit of digging on this site and there was a reference to solution "Ofna Truggie Box Problem" on another post but couldn't find that one.

If anyone has a few pictures or info that would be great.
