NO WAY!

I loved the GP kit for the FC, it was probably my fav. That says a lot, seeing as there are 1,000's of different kits for the FC's.

Yeah, I'm gonna start hoarding cheap engines and practice to get the feel for it. Figure if I can do pistons with relative ease then rotaries shouldn't be that bad.

heres a though guys i noticed/found these lights I always wanted but never knew I can get.. anyways they are the same lights the cars use in lemans.. they come in many differnent wattages.. I ordered the brightest 110/130watt they amke them all the way down to 55/65watt for the stock wattage bulbs. I think it would be sweet if I could get everyone to upgrade their light to these H4 ones.. if they have the H4 conversion that is.. So our whole club will have the same ones.. I think it would be awesome kinda like our out class that we could easly tell whos who. Anyways let me know what you think. I have a set coming for me and can get a few more whenever.. cost os $20 for both bulbs. anyways let me know party time!

If you can prove to me that they are brighter then the PIAA Ultra Plasma GTX bulbs that we both had/have then I will buy a set for sure. But they gotta be noticably brighter.

I don't mind if lowbeam is just a normal lowbeam, as long as high beam is retarded bright. Thats pretty much the way my PIAA's are right now, lowbeam is a bit brighter then a normal low, but high just lights up everything. But if I am gonna be loseing the nice bluish white look for some yellow ones they better be worth it...I dunno....call me ricey for that I don't care, but I like the bluish white alot.

Invatational = Invitational
Go back to Grade 1 f00l!

Yeah all sounds good to me. Those gonna be the VRC circuits?

What about the road from QB to Port Alberni? The one that when we do it we turn around at the top of the hump. Think of a name for that one too.

Yeah, I fully agree with Justin. To me, a normal lowbeam is more desirable, much less heaty. I'm kind of thinking about lighting right now too. I think I want the PIAAs now. They're pretty pricey, but my current lighting isn't cutting it really. Another option are Sylvania Silverstars, which won't be as bright but are street legal.

When will you have these lights, Ty? And are the 110/130w lights like the PIAA ones, so they don't actually use that wattage but actually just use 55/65w? I'd also be worried about getting too much drain from them.

I'm going to do something soon, whether it's the pricey PIAA route, the cheap yellow route or the middle ground Silverstars.

Hmmm. Okay. I think I'll snag some PIAAs tomorrow then. If I like Ty's lights, I'll return 'em.

Ty/Justin - Is the kind to get PIAA Ultra Plasma GTX in H4? I've got the H4 conversion done, so that's not a problem. What's the wattage? Also, the PIAAs are the ones that are 120/135w or something rated, but actually only use 55/65w?
