Ken Block: How Much Light is TOO MUCH light?

Is there a such thing as too much light? On today's episode, we use some high speed science to answer that question. I teamed up with Rigid Industries (who provided over 300,000 lumens of bolt on lighting) and took my SVC Offroad Ford Raptor to the middle of the Utah desert in the middle of the night to find out if more light = more speed!
This also happens to be the very first full-look at my SVC Offroad built Ford Raptor since it’s most recent round of upgrades. We sent it out to SVC to get an all new wide-body by Fiberwerks (painted by LNC Motorsports), new reflective graphics inspired by my 2020 race livery by Troy Lee Designs, rad custom Borla Exhaust system, more suspension upgrades, a new bed cage setup, and a fabricated F9 rear-end with a locker and full float axles by Currie Enterprises. It also features my brand new “Block” signature wheels by Fuel Off-Road wrapped in 40” Toyo Tires!

  • Weird question, what can I install on a 2012 Chevrolet spark to increase my night time visibikity in poorly lit roads. Not in US. I have glaucoma and i live in a country where roads lights are barely used at night.

  • Might consider testing some color filters on the lights to reduce dust glare. No clue if it would work, just know that astronomers will run filters for their telescopes to aid in reducing atmospheric glare. Thinking the same could help with dust.

  • In 2006 I had linear actuators and photo electric sensors steering my adaptive light bar on my Funco. Same year Mercedes/BMW came out with a similar adaptive lighting method. Lights steer when the car steers allowing the light to bend through the turn. Position of each light was crucial. The up/down/left/right override was clutch. I could drive forward and hang the lights hard right to see camps as I was driving at night through the dunes. However the the function of being able to lift or lower the lights was crucial for climbing the big dunes at Glamis. Can’t believe I’ve never seen anyone else do this.

  • This video is certainly not covering all kinds of driving conditions. There definitely is times when too much light is bad. I.E. dense fog, dust , heavy snow, blowing/drifting snow. Also where you mount your bright lightbars can be a big deal for when it’s effective. Mounting lights above the windshield can be an issue. It makes it hard to see through dense fog, snow harder, causing eye strain, also it creates glare off the vehicles hood. It might not be a problem if you have other light bars mounted lower on a bumper or in the grill. Where you can go without it. But if it’s the only light you plan on mounting. Lower light is more functional. Also the beam pattern is possibly the most important decision to make. Spot lights are good, if accompanied by flood/driving lights. Spot light beams are nothing useful in dense fog or heavy snow.

  • I fucking hate all these fancy new lights that blind you as they drive by you. We already went through this "phase" in the 1980's when idiots decided that some people needed halogen lights so they could be sure to blind everyone else. LED light is the absolute worst. It creates an intense glare. I hope LED light is banned forever for autos.

  • You should call that truck "LightSpeed". (Or "LightSteed", if you prefer. That would be a better name for a Mustang, though.) You could make graphics for the truck like *[LIGHT=SPEED]* (with the equals sign a fair amount smaller than the text size for the rest).

  • In Brazil if you simply replace halogen bulbs with led bulbs, even the good ones, you may be stopped by the police and get a ticket. Here if you install bulbs of different technology from what your car had from factory you will be an infractor to the traffic laws, even if it's for better safety and visibility for you and other drivers
