Lightbulb LED Truggy Box Mod

I did this mod so I can see when my box is still on and for alittle more light at night races. I used a 12v dc flex light kit from WalMart from car area came with two light that you can cut to size... You can also use these to http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=8944
I am runnig this on a S4 lipo (14.4v) works fine..... Also works as a flash light.
