Some Goodies arrived today

 

I had all but given up on the Hi-max battery , it sure took a long time getting here , the stuff from KD was not so bad , a week and a half , and my L2P grey , got here rather fast .

Looks like I have to build that XM-L U2 drop in now .. [ wonder if its really a U2 ? ]  , I already swapped out the bezel ring for the SS steel low profile one on the L2P 

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….

I'm curious about that U2 drop-in myself. I'd like a L2P and a U2 so I'll keep checking back on this thread. Keep us posted!

Dunno there will be big difference between T6 and U2. For sure, T6 at 3A will be brighter that U2 at 2A.

If you look at it like that , then a T5 would be better ..

Still , if you can buy U2 , why not ?

Or a beeswax candle. They have not only a nice tint but also smell good. Wink

I have some Hi-Max batteries on order, playing the waiting game on them now.

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

You would ahve to drive the candle pretty hard though, according to the lumens output, you need to drive about 100A through it, I dont we have torchlight sized drivers for that at budget levels yet.
