    pictures of \"buggy spring\" test

    I took a few pictures today while taking the measurements for my new f%$d shock towers. I unhooked the front shocks to get a true measurement. I could have gone a little higher, but the back left shock topped out and was lifting a tire. Cut a paste to your address window. Enjoy.

    I noticed that your running Lightforce lights. Have you been using them for very long? I've been thinking about getting them for a while but I wanted to talk to someone who's had them for a while first. So, how do you like them? I know they got a great review here on the site but I want an opinion from someone whose beat on them for a while. I'm going to get the big 1 million candlepower ones if I've got any money left after the paint goes on and the gears and lockers go in. Let me know how ya like em... Thanks!

    jcg,

    I have had them for about 2 months now. I have used KC's and the Procomps. By far these are the best I have ever used. I just recieved a test sheet on these comparing them to other high dollar lights. It was done by an independent company in Australia, and it showed the Lightforce to rank the best of all the lights tested. (PIAA was one of them). These are the biggest you can get and put out right around 742,000 candlewatt power. They are adjustable and hardly draw any power off of the battery. I think this is because of the way the lense is designed, and the type of bulb. They aren't the best looking lights (I have been asked if they are mickey mouse ears) but they are the most functional.
