Default Pit Space Lights??

Hey guys i know this isnt really a normal question but i have been struggling with those cheap SH*TY lights that arent very bright. But in a lot of the pics from the Vegas race and other races for that matter i have seen the lights the racers are using and they are unbeleiveably bright and small looking. Save some room in your pits too possibly. If anyone has any idea where i can get one possibly in Canada that would be great. Thanks

I believe you're talking about Ott Lites. They're not exactly cheap but they work great. Click below and follow the 'Where to Buy' link...you'll see a link for where to buy in Canada.

Fry's Electronics also has the knock-off like mine for twenty bucks. They work fine. You have to let the lite cool down when done before storing though. That keeps the white plastic from toasting and turning brown. There website is www.outpost.com, good luck.

The OTT-LITE is the way to go. I've had mine for 8 years now. Works awesome. You get what you pay for.

Spesh,

I looked for that darn light for 2 weeks locally in Ontario, Canada last year. I went to the track last night and my buddy is like you have to see this new pit light I bought. He shows me and it's the OTT lite (in black no less) that I looked for and went to countless stores trying to find. My g/f must have thought I was right out in left field with the time I spent looking for it

He tells me he got his at Canadian Tire for $40+tax, so I gave him $50 to buy me one... should have it tonight
