    Bronco lights.

    Have the Bronco with the light kit installed. Traxxas now has a switch available to change from high to low beam with out using the jumper. Any idea if this could be made to turn the lights off and on without having to pull the plug? Thanks.

    Are you wanting to turn the lights on and off from the remote?

    If so, do you have a spare channel open?

    No, just an off and on so the plug can stay plugged in all the time instead of just when I want lights or not.

    You could just buy a cheap on and off switch for the desired voltage, somewhere around 3v, join the + and - wires together and you'll have an on/off switch.

    If you have a extra channel on your remote you can either buy a switch or make one using a old servo.

    Iíve done this a few times and it works great. Very simple as long as you can solder.
