The Scientists of Lighting at Baja Designs would like to thank all of their sponsored KOH race teams and congratulate Bomber Fabrication’s Randy Slawson for an amazing victory at this year’s 2013 Griffin King of the Hammers race. A long week of preparation and pre-running culminated in a very exciting race on Friday. This year’s KOH was witnessed by a record crowd out at Hammertown and an even larger following via the live internet broadcast. Staying true to its name, King of the Hammers was more relentless and unforgiving than ever before, allowing just 27 finishers out of 129 racers.
Bomber Fabrication’s Randy Slawson had this to say, “We chose to outfit our Bomber Fabrication race car #4448 with two Squadron Wide-Corning lights and one 8″ OnX LED Light bar (with all spot reflectors). This combination allowed us to tune our suspension well into the night in preparation for our bid at the 2013 King of the Hammers. End result, on February 8, 2013 we were crowned “King” of the 2013 King of the Hammers. We highly recommend Baja Designs lighting systems for race applications, recreation off-roading and expedition excursions.”
The Scientists of Lighting – at Baja Designs are thrilled to be part of the 2013 King of the Hammers spectacle. Ultra 4 racing has become well known as one of the toughest race series in the United States and King of the Hammers is the granddaddy of them all. The scientists of Baja Designs will have a booth setup so everyone can see their lights, including the new OnX LED that provides the distance of an HID with the smoothness of an LED. BD scientist will also be on hand to help aim your lights and recommend the ultimate lighting setup for your vehicle. Bluetorch Fabworks owner and racer, Jason Carner says, “We are all really excited for this year’s KOH, and even though we hope we won’t have to use our BD lights for this race, we always know we have the best in the business.”
Baja Designs the Scientists of Lighting - are proud to be the official lighting sponsor of Jeepspeed 2013. Since 2001 Jeepspeed has been providing the world with an amazing race class unlike any other. “After attending the 2000 Dakar Rally we returned with the concept of an affordable off road race & rally type class here in the United States. With Dakar suspension wheel travel limits but using American built Jeep vehicles, Jeepspeed was born.” – (Jeepspeed) Baja Designs could not be happier to be involved with the Jeepspeed class and provide all of its racers with the best lighting solutions possible. Our new OnX LED light bar was introduced late this year and has begun to make a huge impact in off-road racing. “Racers can now have the distance of an HID with the smooth spread of an LED”, say’s owner and head engineer Alan Roach. Jeepspeed racers and enthusiasts will have Baja Designs standing by them for support with the newest in LED technology as well as educational information on optimal lighting set-ups and aiming. Please feel free to contact BD if you are participating in the 2013 Jeepspeed class and would like more information on LED/HID lighting for your vehicle.
NEW PRODUCTS AND SHOW SPECIALS!!!!
At the 14th annual Sand Sports Super Show Baja Designs celebrated 20years of innovation and racer proven off-road lights with a bang. Many of you have been hearing “buzz” about BDs new OnX LED light bars. These are the light bars that Baja Designs racers have been excitedly testing and they are all saying the same thing: “this LED light bar really gets out there and it’s small enough to significantly reduce wind drag!”.
The brightest LED light is worthless if it is not where the driver needs it. Most LED light systems use optics from third party companies. The majority of these optics produce round shapes, similar to a flashlight. All “spot” patterns are round to achieve maximum distance, but much of the large circle light is wasted at the top and bottom because it is not usable by the driver. Driving lights should be wider and more oval in shape to take maximum advantage of the available light provided.
