Gang,

Who runs those LED light bars that blind you and suck little power?

They are the rectangle and have the xenon looking beam?

Thanks!!

Last year the Hoover cars had something like that. IMO the blinding light from those cars was over the top & dangerous. I wonder if they were projected beam automotive type lights, or general purpose. Either way, they sucked for everyone else.

Hey JD-

This weekend we are running 4 HID 7" lights from the old 2nd gen Rx7 enduro car at the NASA 3 hr Button-willow Enduro Event. We used the old
light bar w/ new quick mounts, so it takes about 10sec. to mount the lights and your off and racing. Let me know if its something your looking at?

They're not rectangle, but a fellow Spec Miata racer is making these, which I will run at the 25:

I'm interested to know how much a light bar setup for car racing goes for because the high intensity LED systems for bikes are extremely expensive (and extremely bright) http://www.bikelightingsystem.com/seca1400.html

They are extremely expensive! Not unheard of to drop $600 on a mid-size unit, but the suckers are insanely bright.

I've been working on securing one of several manufactures to add to our enduro product mix. I will post a classified ad once we do.
