well went for a ride last night. was fairly dry ended up driving threw some billabongs but they were fairly shallow still.

did have a lil accident popping out of a set of ruts sideways with a bit to much pace and clipped a tree wth the front corner. so gotta fix that up. only cosmetic plactic bits which will be replaced with my front armor when its ordered. but untill the armor turns up youll barely notice the damage anyways only minimal

Well it's all fixed just gotta weld. A little bit tomorro. Ordering my under body protection this week hopefully all alloy skid plates and bash gaurs with inter grated winch plate so ill able to mount up my winch. Thinking bout a lift kit also can buy from mind to wild and lift from 2" to 7" but going to stuck with 2" just to fit some 28s in the future

well the brute has been going strong. just clocked up 23 hours. few little things have been done to it lately.

Resinstalled my Great White Led Lightbar.

Installed a pair or RALLYE 400 Compact lights Converted to HID using a 35watt Kitt from Revolution

Installed mesh In Front Of The Rad To Try keep the mud out of it.

going for a drive tomorro night to see how all the lights work.

also did a check on the battery and seems to be holding charge will all the lights on,

The problem is the amps it draws and whether the mag can overcome that draw and still provide sufficient oomph to the battery to charge it.

Any pics of your mesh?

If that doesn't work then;

.9 of a volt??

Amps equals watts divided by system voltage.


a pair of 35w hids should draw 5.8 AMPS at 12v plus another 6 amps for your headlights plus the light bar maybe another 3-5 amps


so 16-18amps just in lights let alone anything else the motor wants.


Dont feel im telling you off or anything, but seems like alot of load and a shit tonne of light for a quad...... I'll buy the rallyes off ya? :mrgreen:

For reference they're a 33amp alternator and a 12V 12Ah battery. As long as they thing is charging then OK. Just didn't think she'd cope will everything running too well.

33amp is not a bad size for a quad.

The newer ones are a bit bigger to cope with all the electrics, power steering etc. Old ones were around 20A I think I read somewhere
