Would it be possible to hook a relay to the light circuit for control and use a 30 amp relay to the HID ballasts ?

I hate using an under rated control device. Time will tell when your feed wire melts

Some of the HID kits out there draw a momentary 15 amps at cold strike. I would use a relay with at least 15 amp rated contacts, 30 amps is better.
