  1. Looks like a lotta fun, until you crash that is!!!!!
  2. medipuffs info is spot on, unless the lamp is rated dimmable by the manufacturer (and the majority of lamps are not) all you will do is shorten the life span of the HID lamp, electronic dimmable ballasts are notorious for this. Not to mention RF issues if you haven't bought a RF shielded electronic ballast, this could potentially lead to an unwanted visit form a cable tv or telephone company or worse, theives or law enforcement. I'm a firm believer in magnetic ballast's and standard inexpensive HPS and MH lamps and have used them for many many years. I've tried the expensive par hyped lamps and noticed nothing beats a standard HPS or MH lamp swapped out more often. Standard HID lamp is about $20 bucks, par hyped HID lamps are typically $100 bucks plus. I use a typical cobra head 400w street lighter magnetic ballast and lamp, works great ive been using the same one for almost a decade and havent had to change the capacitor or starter yet. Street lights use a higher grade of components in their cores or reactors designed to last longer as well as their standard components. I've tried dimmable electronic ballasts and their features and never particularly cared for them. I believe in KISS "keep it simple stoner"!!!!!
