mounting options are suggested for securing the LEDs into the
first is "plug and play." This is where you just push

hole is drilled, insert the LED holder followed by the LED. The
LED clicks into place from the rear and is held securely by a
heavy duty installation requires removal of the wire terminals
from the connecter housing. A hobby knife works well for this,
just be careful not to cut your self. Slide the housing over the
LED leads, insert the LED leads into the wire terminals, and reinsert
the wire terminals into their housing. You will hear two clicks
when the terminals are completely seated in the housing. You may
now bend excess LED leads back around the housing making sure
not to let them touch each other. Finish the installation with
some shrink tubing that can be bought at most hardware stores.
illustration shows the polarity of the LED leads. The long lead
is positive and should join with the blue wire while the shorter
lead is negative and joins the black wire.
included square bases are fitted with mounting tape which holds
securely to the body. A zip tie can then be threaded through the
base to secure the completed wiring.
final step is to rout the wires away from the windows and secure
them to the body with the included aluminum tape.
included "RX pass-thru" plugs into the receiver where
the ESC normally goes. The ESC and light control switch then plug
into the pass-thru for simple installation.
controller is fitted with two switches. One switch is for brake
direction reversal and the other controls throttle center brightness
(weather the tail light stay solid bright or act as brake lights).
