    MERV Lighting kit Question

    I got the Lighting kit sold for the 1/16 E-Revo and I'm not sure how to connect these two together (See picture). From what I can tell everything I've been able to find, including the instructions, show a different connector on the MERV than this more recent one. What am I missing?

    Thats for the older style plug so you'll either need to find/ make an adapter or swap the esc plug

    I run my lights straight from the receiver but I see there is only the red lead on that jst plug. Make me wonder why they would wire it like that.

    This the kit I use and it works with nearly any receiver.

    That kit works with the 1/16 Merv VXL and plugs in nicely to the stock receiver? Can you show pics of your install of the lights and how you ran the wiring?

    You're not missing anything. I've owned and installed that kit. It sucks and it's outdated. And it doesn't install on the modern/new E-Revo's.
