Ride along with Justin Lofton in his off-road prerunner with laser lights
Whoa, now do it again.
It's so dark!
We hear a lot about laser headlights coming to the States.
Great, we're going to be in BMWs, blah, blah, blah.
The trick is, though, is that for the United States, they have to be dialed down a little bit.
And I want to know what laser lights look like For reals, and there's one place you can do that and that is out here in the dirt.
So I'm going to team up with a mid 400 winning driver, Justin Lofton, we're going to take a ride in his prerunner and see how these baja design laser lights powered by slb laser can light up the night.
When it comes to off road racing.
You should only be driving what you can actually see So at night it stands to reason that the further you can see, the faster you can drive.
Now these trophy trucks, they can have a lot of horsepower.
Five, six, seven, even 800 horsepower.
And these laser lights really Cut through the night.
It's going to give drivers and advantage and of course when you're racing out in the desert, every advantage helps.
Now, Justin's prerunner isn't quite as powerful as a trophy truck.
It's rocking about 400 and 450 horsepower, but it's still great to see how far these lights can cut through the night.
What's even cooler is when Justin turns off the lights all together, you can see that it's really terrifyingly dark out here.
Then when you turns on just the stock halogen lamps, you realize that you probably can't see anything at all when you're driving at night, right?
When you go from those two and led, which is what a lot of people are using these days, it's definitely much better but the lights still a little bit fuzzy.
Switching on those laser lights really means that the light is crisp, it's clear and it's just pure white.
As we turn around and head back into camp, we're driving through some of our own dust.
A lot times, you wanna use an amber light to cut through that dust.
But these lasers, even though it's a white light, still does as great job of piercing through that dust.
You can see what's on the other side and, hopefully, you won't have to check up that much.
But my real question is, can a trophy truck outrun these lights?
Now here in this prerunner in this rocky will be section and we're doing maybe 4050 miles an hour and I feel pretty confident I feel like I could see and then I could definitely go this fast in this section.
But what if we were out on a dry lake bed doing 140 hundred and 50 miles an hour with these lights shine far enough that I would have the confidence to stay flat out Possibly win the race?
Well, a lot of drivers seem to think so because these lights have been on all of the winning drivers for the past couple of years.
So truth be told, I've always been a little nervous about racing at night just cuz I can't see so good so I'm definitely gonna be getting myself a laser light bar of my own.
Because with off road racing, any advantage you can have, it's what's gonna push you over the podium.
