    Am an electrician who goes against the "stream". But you can't always translate wordplay. The swedish word for stream (ström) is the same as current...

    Soldered some sheet metal on the back of the LED, like heatsink.

    Retooled Stampen to make it more durable and userfriendly.
    Lowered the CG by removing weight from the body and lowered the body.

    Also changed power-LED. A little less light but more durable...

    (Though the body doesn't look that great anymore.)

    With all that paint that came off the body. I wonder if you used the correct paint for a Polycarbonate bodies? The Light system is amazing. I've been working on a light system for another truck Yesturday. My son and I, hand built a light bar/brushguard that will hold to 5mm LEDs.

    Yes, it was lexanpaint. I washed it. Maybe too thick layers...
    It was my first body (not counting the hand painted body 20 years ago). Hopefully the next will be better, but painting bodies isn't really my thing...

    A lot of paint came off when I removed the junction box, that was mounted inside the top of the body...

    We are all blessed with some skill.
    Good when we can use it...

    I do have a clear Slash body, that came with the Platinum. When I'm ready for it, I'll give it a try. Keep it simple, one color...

    This is my dad's rustler with a 12v neon tube from an old computer. The main battery couldn't run it so it was plugged into a wall outlet with a 12v inverter.
    [IMG][/IMG]
    I also put two 5mm white LEDs in steel holders and one 3mm led in a red holder, I also put a 12v led strip across the center driveshaft on a piece of lexan, it doesn't really look good because the paint on the body is falling off.

    Sorry I just realized one of the pictures got eaten by the internet. I'll try to get a night run video of the 4x4.

    The 2wd didn't run with the neon tube, although I forgot to mention he did put led strips on the sides of the chassis.
