Question Powering a cars ICE at a carshow?

How do you power a car's ICE when you have to disconnect the battery? I've already put in a request for power, but how does the connection work? will i have to bring a special adapter or plug to connect to my main car power wire? This is for Hot Import Nights

I have a power cable connected to the second ice battery. This cable runs to a point under the seat. I can lift the seat and connect this cable to a battery charger.

I need a battery charger of 60 amps but i only have one of 30 amps so i have to play sillent because otherwise the batterycharger will go in automatick securety

Just disconnect the battery terminal in your engine compartment. This always works for the judges and you can still use all of your functions. The firemarshals come by and inspect, and the day of the show everyone connects them up anyway!

how do i keep my battery from going dead though? I'm upgrading to a yellow top but, would one battery be enough to power an ice for 5hrs or more?

you do it like me, you add a second one with a power cutting relais that kills the connection between the 2 batterys when the motor is not running
