The only thing I have my ballast resistor hooked up to is the fuel cut solenoid on my carbs.
I have always been of the understanding it limits voltage. The solenoids are not supposed to have anymore then 9V supply to them (by my research).

Yeah. I was told the point of the resister on the ignition was so when starting the car it has initial 12v then once its started it limits to 9v. But if your not running one either i probably wont bother.

Thanks for the reply aswell!
