    1/16 summit light set

    visiting this side from the merv world.... i just upgraded my bumpers to summit bumpers, and want to install lights in the bumpers. does traxxas, or anyone else sell already made light kits for the it? i don't know if they come with them or not, but my bumpers came with some clear plastic inserts that look and feel a lot like an led....

    I got the same led lights used in the 1/10 version, remove the plastic inserts and they fit like a glove.

    for the 1/10 summit i am seeing 2 part numbers

    5689 LED lights, front harness (4 clear lights), Summit .............................. $8.00
    5688 LED lights, rear harness (6 red lights), Summit (1)/ wire clip (1) ....... $10.00

    can you please show me what was removed?

    i probably wont even need most of the back one as there are only 2 rear brakelights, but i might cut it down, maybe, make my own for the rear

    Do these plug into the receiver AUX ports directly or is there more to the kits than that?

    Hey, dunno the rules bout posting ads and stuff , but,

    G T POWER 12 LED RC Car Flashing Light System

    thats what i got, works great, comes with the cords for the esc, and 12 leds, and a switch, to change the mods on the lights, can turn it into a cop car , if you really wanted too,

    The link to an on-line retailer has been removed. Please review Rule 11 of the Traxxas On-Line Community Rules, which prohibits the posting of links to on-line retailers.

    went and looked at the LHS, they have JST plugs and are plugged in via the diff lock controller... i think i'll wait for the 1/16 version to come out.

    Speaking of the 1/16 kit, anyone know when we can expect #7285,7286,7287,7288,7289 to hit the shelves?

    I just installed the gt power light kit yesterday. I plugged it in Ch5/Batt on the receiver. The 5mm white leds fit perfectly on the front bumper, you just have to remove the plastic inserts and plug in the leds. For the smaller 3mm color leds (e.g. red for rear/brake light) I put them in their mounting plug that came in the box and plugged those in the holes in the rear bumper - the holes are just slightly smaller than the plug, but with some force I could plug them in. Just to be safe I applied some glue so they can't fell out during larger bumps or rollovers, and used plasti dip to seal all of them. I plan to make a light bar for the blue, yellow and whit leds on the roof, then I'll just need to dye the body to finish my "off road emergency truck"

    and i dont know much about electrics and aint the best at soldering, but this was the easiest solder job ive ever done.
    cost me something like $12 for four front leds, resisitors,wire and solder. the rear lights i pulled out of a bicycle light.
