I went to Harbor Freight and picked up a couple of those 5,000,000 candle watt spotlights for Matt's kart, I'm not sure where they are going to be mounted, but they should light up Rio Vista! Shocked

Dan,We are having a problem getting the FLIR night vision to work on the Kart. Mounting it was no problem once we talked my wife into letting us use the tower of the ski boat. It was working fine when I took it off the Apache Helicopter. Maybe it needs a bigger wire from the Magneto?

Well, the FLIR worked, although I had to mount it to the kart under the fairing instead of the Ski Tower. If anyone is interested in one for a future night race. The FLIR is under the nose piece of an Apache. The airlines are charging $25.00 extra for check on luggage from Iraq. Once you get it mounted up I can help with the wiring.
