Better take notice of the bright spots showing where the flash is aimed, too.
And, if you look at the hood & roof, you should see that the flash is just providing some fill. The actual good reflections come from the sky, & you won't get these results shooting after full dark.

needs major slammage. for a more agressive look

I agree with this guy, definitely needs lowering... Either that or new tires that actually have some side wall.

What would you recommend changing to eliminate the hot spots? Just changing the direction or another method?

I think moving the lights closer would concentrate the light too much on one spot. Or am I wrong? I'm a noob to using flash too so I'm glad you asked.

You are right, and will blow out an area of the car and have dark spots as well... The more distance you have with your strobes, the better.

Nice pics by the way. Looks like you used a CP?

No. (I have no idea how you arrived at that?)
These were well after dark, but maybe it will help you visualize what I was saying. The sky still provided light for the roof & hood. The only strobe was for the tail lights:
Malibu in the snow.

I would be a good idea to park the car, & just stand there a look at it for 5 minutes before you start shooting. Then you'll probably need to MOVE YOUR FEET!
