    Desert Night Drifting w/ pics and vids

    I created a light kit last night from some of my old flashlights and a helicopter light kit I had. Each of the white LEDs and the center red LED is 3watts, the other two red ones are the regular superbrights.


    This is the first configuration that I had. I call it Wall-E config after disney's robot.



    This is the ideal configuration since the main headlights are leveled.





    Now for some vids. Please rate and comment.

    These vids are taken with a camera, I'll update later with vids from a camcorder.

    Somewhere in the garage I have a full lighting kit from one of my drifters I used to have. Going to try an dig it up tomorrow. It has all. Head lights, tail lights, brake lights and even indicators. lol You can switch the head lights off and on using the third channell too. I hope I can find it.
    BASH. BREAK. FIX. REPEAT. ALWAYS REPEAT.

    I am using the Trinity light kit for the Mini T , its just the right length and the LED's are really bright ! Very easy too install , you just dont have the back up lights .

    im not sure what your setup is, or if you care ... but a PicoSwitch ( $20 ) and a TQ3/4 would allow you to turn on/off the lights for your truck. Alternately, you could build a simple "Dark-Detector" circuit that would turn on and off your lights based on the luminosity in the area you're running.

    I don't know why the edit option is gone so I could add pics to my first post, but anyways here are updates. The the LED harness is made of plastic but I will soon upgrade to aluminum with carbon fiber to help the LEDs dissipate heat and strengthen it. I also got rid of the center front LED.
    @RokeyLounge, I want to keep the light system separate from the receiver. There's no point of having the system attached if it's not being used.











    The Tx is 25ft. away.

    well, it certainly looks like the system is working great for you... but for me, if i was going to have something sticking that far out of my truck, it better be flame-throwers (i only say these things because, i still flip enough that those would be broke, and flame-throwers would be awesome! )

    I'm a purest so I only put things on my revo if it has some type of functionality not just for looks.

    This is only a mock up. The heat from the LEDs melted the hot glue and it dropped off before I even had a chance to flip and knock 'em off. I will make a harness out of aluminum layered with carbon fiber and thermal expoxy glue the LEDs. If those break they better take the stock mount with them as well.
