    Disconnect the Negative, not the positive.

    I've always wondered if it made a difference. Do you have an explanation to why you say negative and someone else says positive? Just wondering.

    Basicly because your less likely to accidently have the wire touch some other metal or something while the batt can give juice, thus lessening the chance of accidently welding some sh*t together or shocking yourself ect.

    Supercharger, nah. I think you got me confused with sppdracer. Although i do know much about cars. That one just always got me because when i was working on cars i would disconnect the positive, when my dad (who will know more about cars than i, or probably anyone here, will ever know) always disconnected the negative. I guess i'll start doing the same thing.
