    1/16th Erevo VXL Light Kit W/ Old Style Plug

    I just installed the light kit for my brand new MERV and my last step is plugging in the "power tap" to the ESC. I finally decided that this power tap connector is incompatible with my MERV's connector. This connector seems to be for the older style square Traxxas plugs instead of the more oval shaped plugs. Has anyone come across this? What can I do about this?

    Sorry to pull up an old thread, did you ever get this resolved? I don't see a light kit with the new "ID"connectors.

    Yeah I did. I had to buy an old style connector then swap the plugs. To swap them just pull the plug off the wires. You have to pull pretty hard.

    You swapped the connectors out on the light kit or on your ESC? Would you have any pictures by chance?

    Thanks!

    Call Traxxas, they sent me the correct plug at no charge.

    I believe it was the ESC. They gave you a connector?? made me buy one...
