    Sverige, love this project. Any chance you might put together a single sheet schematic for this? I can solder like a champ, but have zero EE skills. I am gonna start a new scale body project soon and would love to rig lights on it.

    Thanks. Have to think over how I've done it, then try to get it down on paper...

    I was able to create some sort of scheme, and I added some colors...
    Hope it's understandable.

    That's awesome! I'm hoping to do something with LEDs for my stampede this winter, but I won't have brake lights.
    Nice job though!

    I plan on just buying a bunch of LEDs and wiring them how I want. I found a place where I can get them really cheap. I was playing around and had like 104 items or so in my cart and the cost was like 8 bucks.

    Not to hijack the thread or anything, but here's a couple of not-so-sharp pics of the lighting job I did for my Rally.
    Used to book lights, one strapped to the hood and the other strapped to the battery holder aimed upward to make
    the orange markings glow. Makes it a heckuva lot easier to tell how the car is oriented.
