Default Summit Headlights & Tail lights

Does anyone know of good looking head & tail lights to put on a Summit?

Light buckets or parts from another model?

The Summit comes with stick on decals for Head and Tail Lights. I would like to add LED Head and Tail Lights.

My lights are wired to a turnigy switch and 10a BEC on the receiver, and uses the Red Rocker (3rd channel) Switch on the TQI transmitter. I think that RC4WD has an add on that will bump/add what gets turned on, each time you hit the switch.

I have a set of these on my E Maxx and their pretty nice. They run off receiver power directly, doesn't need a seperate 9 volt battery. Have headlights, blinkers and tail and brake lights. The headlights could be a little brighter, but their ok. Any of the lights can be configured differently.
RC Ultra Bright LED Headlight Taillight Brake Turn Signal System TOYZ 698.

Now if you want brighter headlights there are these.
Yeah Racing 3mm (6500mcd) Super Bright White LED for RC Car Parts
http://www.ebay.com/itm/140570128414...84.m1438.l2649
OR these that are brighter yet
Yeah Racing (#YE-0005BU) 5mm (8000mcd) Super Bright Blue LED - 2pcs
http://www.ebay.com/itm/130539219103...84.m1438.l2649


Here they are being tested at like 5:30 am in the morning lol.

Here's the brake lights. They come on when you decelerate using brakes.

I don't see any leds on this one. It has fake leds, but not real ones. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Summit-UPDAT...item4d130623a9

I know they offer a real led light bar for it.

Just drill holes in the shell and fit the led's in it. Also yes there is a working light bar from traxxas. It doesn't come with the leds. You are thinking of summit bumpers that have led's.

LEDs and controllers are not the issue. Looking for light buckets that match the body and mount from the inside.

Tape works pretty well, also hot glue will work best.

shoe goo has worked the best for me, it works excellent cause it dries but stays a little flexible for those hard crashes and continues to hold.
