    Headlight options and ideas

    Hey guys and gals, I am looking for lighting options for my ERBEV2. I want to keep it simple and want it to look good also. Please give some idea, if you could include picture also.

    Saw a guy using the mod from your first picture today. Was pretty slick. His had reverse lights too, I assume yours just aren't activated? Both choices are sweet!

    For $99 bucks. There has to be a cheaper way.

    I have the same lights Acidic recommend the ebay one the lights are bright you could see it way down the street. I don't have a video of it going down the street but they are pretty nice. As for the braid that they come with I was concerned about the body cutting the Braid so I had to find a way to mitigate it a little bit so I wrapped it around the front body mount a certain way. I will share pictures later of how I set it up. But geez I took like 30 minutes trying to find where the heck to place that braided wire.


    I linked a video for you guys so you can see.

    $32 on Ebay. Love the looks. They also came with a controller to strobe, change brightness, or even turn off.

    edit: I used the insert image button and I'm not seeing the images

    I like the bumpers from my mod. Rear is big enough easy to pick car up from the rear bumper. Yes I have the reversing lights as well. The vid on my album. Shows it.

    I just can't recommend the trx led module. Due to price and durability. Wires for lights to small and easy to break. On the erevo and xmaxx I have issues with the lights due to damaged wires. I think my led module on erevo may be toast now but not sure... Just didn't want to turn on with app but I didn't muck with it to see what's up. May just be cut wires again....

    I was trying to stay trx for components and for app integration.

    I've had issues with the traxxas light module on my trx6. The junction box won't work unless I keep the lead wire from the truck taped in a certain orientation. Pretty disappointed in its durability, but it's light years better in function than my Axial Capra's stock LED which flickers with the steering despite have an 8a bec.

    I put the Summit bumpers on, and the Summit head and taillights. No pics, but it works well. I need to reinstall the headlights, so I can drive at night.

    I find your lack of teepee disturbing.
