If you have a 3 channel radio, you can put in one of these to remotely turn the lights on and off.

Here is my 8 year olds Slash. The lights are controlled by a Hansen Hobbies NER and a DX-3. It's a garage queen right now, but I'm going to turn him loose with it shortly.
+1 on Hughes500bob, I have exactly what you're looking for and it's great.
+2 me too. I have to put something else here or it tells me my message is too short.:D
Very nice. My originals are almost slick. I would like to put on something different but the same size. I'll keep this in mind.
I need to cut a little on the forward edge of the rear fenders. Otherwise, not bad, we have the springs set pretty stiff. We run mostly up and down the road in front of the house and in the front...
I had this painted for my son by Larry at Kustom RC Graphics. We've mounted it since this picture was taken and added some scratches to the roof :D .
IMO its the best mod you can do. Shorter antenna, no interference, transmitter uses 4 AA's vs 8 AA's. I despise the long antennas so much that I just had them running the length of the car under the...

Order some $1 bearings from Avid RC, you'll need 8 4x7's, 2 for each rocker arm. That should help reduce some binding. I went ahead and bought 2 5x8's for the steering servo arm also.
Run away from the brushed. I have (had) one of each: a vxl slash and a brushed revo. The esc in the brushed lasted about 5 runs and paled in comparison to the vxl. I ended up transplanting the vxl...
+1 on that
I just did the same thing (sidewinder and stock vxl) to upgrade a brushed. Seems economical and popular. It was the same cost as a power up. We'll see once all the parts start coming in.
That same seller has a combo with a motor too. I am thinking about it. It's been discussed here: http://monster.traxxas.com/showthread.php?t=508801
I'm threatening to put in a sidewinder micro....
3rd post. Thank you for all the great information. I have a 1/16 Slash VXL. My son has a brushed (big mistake) 1/16 revo. The esc in the revo is evidently dead (I think it lasted 3 runs with 2 stock...
Playing in the front yard:
You won't like the stock charger. Charge time is 6 - 8 hours. I just received a Venom Pro charger. Its more like 18 minutes.
