SLP's manual fan control switch allows you to turn you car's electric coolant fans on manually, yet still retain stock fan operation. If you are sitting in traffic or at the track waiting in the staging lanes between rounds, you can click on your fans early to aid in keeping your engine operating efficiently and producing as much power as possible. With a flip of a switch, the fans will resume stock operation.

Ususally used to cool your engine while your waiting in the staging lanes. I hope thats the fans your talking about.

There are 2 fans that are wired in series or in parallel depending on the speed. Low speed is 6V and high speed is 12V. Advantage of low speed would be cool off time between runs w/o so much drain on the battery.
