I know this is a little off topic but...... has anyone seen lightforce lights...they're used for spot-lighting.....absolutely bloody amazing!!!!!!
I have seen them fitted to a few cars and trucks....and they have a variety of filters that can be fitted. I imagine that they would work a treat. Extremely powerful...(think that the units lights are measured in candlepower? )
can imagine that they would be pretty fragile though
The Light Force lights aren't fragile at all. In fact, they're bulletproof (part of the marketing spiel is to shoot at the lens with a .22 rifle at 150m). The lenses and bodies are polycarobonate (bullet proof glass). This makes them incredibly light and strong.
A few of my mates run them on their 4WD's, but I haven't seen them used much in rallying.
Lampy - if you get some H1 inserts for your high beam, this will give you about the best result short of going to separate driving lights. They have ones with slight vertical lines on them (just enough to make them legal). When I had a set of these on the front of my rally car, you couldn't tell when the Rallye 1000 medium beam spotties were turned on. Wasn't until I fitted a pair of Cibie Super Oscars and a pair of Rallye 2000's that the spotties were any better than the high beam inserts.
Also, don't waste your money on anything more than 100W globes. Going higher than 100W gives only slightly more light, usually burns the reflectors, and tend to blow the globes much more frequently. I've never burned out a 100W globe, whereas I burned out 125 and 130W globes all the time until I switched back to 100W.
