We are prepping the car for the SNORE series this yr. Had remembered for the night races that the blue strobe light was implemented. Does that also hold true for day time races? Specifically BAP?

I am pretty sure you do not need it for BAP as we only run with our class and class 9. Might want to verify by asking on the Snore site or Maybe Ed will chime in.

Not to confuse but SNORE says you have to have the blue light but it doesn't say anything about a blue strobe like you guys had at the night challenge.

Just got an e-mail back from Bill Shapley SNORE tech. he says:

battle at primm requires a rear facing amber light min of 25 watts and a max of 50 watts must be turned on by the ign switch

Check the SNORE rule book. It specifically says that you need a 3\" blue light for class 11.

That light is to designate us as a slower class. Since at BAP we only race with our class and class 9 we don't need it. All other races it is required though.

I'm chiming. Bill Shapely will be performing pre-tech and if he says no blue I'd agree no blue. As far as the strobe light, this is mandatory for all SNORE races except the BAP. I'll try and get some more clarification from the new RD on the 3\" so there's no issue. The rule book is being amended.

What's up with DRIVE not allowing LED lights for amber lights. That's super lame. I don't want to dedicated a couple valuable amps to some crappy light that doesn't look trick. Duh.

Jason, I believe that those are the same lights that we have on our car. Shapley didn't have a problem with them as combined they make up the required lighted area. What's cool abt them you can have them alternate the flash between the two. Which gives an added sense of alertness!!! You may want to run it by Shapley, an tell him that they are the same as ours. An thanks for all the grub, beer, pre-run, an help!!!

Thats not entirely true, you can always add taillights for better visibility to those behind you-read safer!

So what's wrong with the $20 Ebay ones?

And that one is a cheap example. They are available from US vendors as well.

the trick is mounting them so they stay and not get destroyed,
ORW is only a little more money and they have solid mounts and rubber groments for them and you can test to see how bright they are in the shop. Less than a $100 I was able to get 3 - 2x8 LCD lights, with steel mounts and rubber shock obsorbers for the lights. (2 - blue and 1 Amber and blinker) LCD Blinker sold at a deisel truck shop, Thanks Dave C

Hey guys,

One of you mentioned 2 x 8 blue lights, but the SNORE rules only mention 3" (round I presume). Has anyone gotten any grief using the 2 x 8? Where can we get the 3" blue flashing light?

Thanks,
Larry
