    is anyone running the proline light bar?

    if so how does it hold up to roll overs etc? I like it because i think i could run on my backyard track at night but if it will break everytime i flip the slash(which is sometimes a lot) it might not be worth it...

    Thanks

    I have been running it on one of my bodies for months now without any problems. Had a few roll overs and its been fine.
    All you do is just make two holes for it and use the clips it comes with to attach it.

    Proline Light Bar

    I bought the light bar from Bill's Custom R/C lighting complete with the led's already in the housing and wired to a switch battery holder and a set of lights for the front and rear. He will do just about any combination of lights you want, amber, red, white, super bright white, wired into a Proline light bar, etc. Here is a link to his website:

    Proline Light Bar Installed

    Here is what the Proline Light Bar looks like installed. I kinda screwed up on the front lights but the rear and the light bar came out pretty good.

    Could you please take a closer pic from the front without the yellow caps and with the lights off?

    Are they using the stock plastic lenses? Are they semi-transparent? Thanks!

    My Proline lights on my Baja Slash lasted 3 runs. The first barrel roll off of a 2 foot high jump snapped 3 of them off. They looked great on it, but they didn't last long at all.
    My scale crawler I used Tamiya Clod buster lights zip tied to my roof rack. That way they fold back or forward when it rolls. I have to try a different mounting method.

    Thanks copter, but from that picture I can't tell if the lenses are grey or semi-transparent. I want to add the LEDs myself, that's why I'm asking.

    Mine lasted about 4 runs with a few rollovers and they got kinda beat up then when I first put my brushless system on I rolled it doing like 40 and yeah 4 out of the 5 "lights" broke off. If you drive like a grandma then go ahead and get them but for everyone else they wont last.
