OK new to the forum here and the buggy world. Bought a TM Challenger 150x, a year old but only 2mls on it. Seller works in Alaska so no time to ride. Buggy turns more rpm's and power when normal lights are on, but when the light bar is turned on at any rpm the buggy dies. I am looking forward to upgrading the buggy as I'm an avid drag racer, but I need to resolve this 1st. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Sounds like it might be a power issue. If the light is drawing too much power from the system then it wont have the power to spark the fuel. Was the light stock or was it a aftermarket light added to the system?
