I'm not really worried about the carjackers
but, a way to immobilize the car from 300 feet
could serve a few purposes. I guess I didn't
think of the possible accidental shut-off of an
electrical kill switch, though. Perhaps the
whole burglar alarm idea is the best way to go.
Thanks for the thoughts everyone.
