There is always the traditional downpour 1 hour before the start of the race to look forward to :wink: The ominous look of doom on everyones face was a picture last year. Turned out alright in the end :D I'm here all week if you want more helpful advice on Florida weather forecasts.

Does Lewis need some lights? I can get mine to Jango if needed.

ah, could be a slight problem there allready claimed Matts as well! Just looking at a helmet light if poss. Yours are fixed so Lewis should be coverd mate. Need to do a better fix though, are you going to run them as helmet lights? if so buy an extension cable and i can splice it directly to the existing cable, make for a much better repair.

Yes you can but I found it a bit heavy as a helmet light, the Ay-Ups are much better as helmet lights

Ay-ups use velcro pads (have plenty of spares) to attach the light and battery to the helmet. Have 2 settings max and not-max power (still very bright), in theory the lower setting should last 6 hours but have never tested it.

Back to work, will catch up later
