    LED. s for my P4DE

    with the sun going down earlier soon, it might be time to install some LED's on my P4de so I can do some night time driving. I've never installed lights before and know nothing about it. I need recommendations on a good quality set of lights that are easy to install. I would like to have the option of turning them off and on as opposed to them just being on when the truck is on. Please advise. links and/or part numbers would be a great help.

    the front lights in the bumper are #6784
    the roof lights are integy roof rack

    hard to see in the picture but i have the body drilled with led holders. These means 12 more leds. 2 front headlights and turn signals on each side (6 total), and the back have taillights, signals, break lights (6). to run the lights i bought an RClights controller.

    so with 3 different sets (rclights, integy, traxxas) this thing can run in complete darkness

    Leaving the lights on is no biggie. I don't even notice them on in the daylight. They are great once the sun goes down though.

    That Revo is cool...

    for super simple just buy TRA6784 (those are the lights that fit on the stock stampede front bumper). Other led's will require you to buy a controller but this can also add to the light system (police lights, turn signals, break lights, strobe lights).

    what remote switch is used to control the lights from the controller? I already have headlights and tailights installed on my pede, but would LOVE to have remote operated police lights! Too sweet!!!

    Traxxas makes a 4 channel tx and Tamiya makes several light controllers and light kits.

    I tried a light kit with a controller that had 2 rx leads. One for turn and one for brake lights. I can't use it because it interferes with throttle and it only goes half speed. Any ideas guys?
