Ok.

I got the LED from eBay, the wire from a old car, and the resistors from my local electrical shop.

Before I painted my body I masked off the light area so it remained clear. Then I fitted yokomoto AE86 light buckets and painted the detail on the front indercator, read indercator and brake lights with Tamiya translucent orange and red.

The LED's just push into the lighbuckets, and I just used sticky tape to hold the wire to the body.

Do u really want a pic of the inside?

What u wll need
2x while LED's
2x red LED's
3x resistors to suit LED's
Length of duel core wire
Heat shrink
Small switch
Female servo connector and crimps
Light buckets
Unpainted car body
Masking tape
Doubble sided tape
Sho goo
Soldering iron
Solder
Servo wire crimping tool
Optional.... Black silicon

Hope this helps

I have the hpi e10 mustang body drift car and I am new to this but I reading what is being posted about brushless and I was wondering what the difference is and what r thebenefits of using brushless and is it costly? I also saw a rc car with a battery that was like twice as thick and twice as high as the battery that came with my e10 does anyone know what kind of battery that might be ? I want to customize my e10 as much as possible even cosmetic of the chassis. Any help would be appreciated sorry if my novice lingo doesn't make sense.

@angus5 That cf chassis looks nice. It looks very similar to the one I made a while back, pics are on post #389. I have had lots of fun with it. It has proven to be very durable after many many parking lot bashing sessions. Shimmed rear diff has held up well to brushless power and 31mm rear tires. I'm very happy with the e-10 overall. Although it has taken considerable upgrading to to get to that point....

I've had my e10 drift for about two days....For a beginner in non toy grade r/c (you break you can fix/upgrade)its pretty good. However being non noobish to r/c what is with the ni-cad pack? does anybody use those anymore for anything but the radio? The only real thing I hated about the car is its seems slow(but I heard it has bushings not bearings). But with that said the weird/anoyance I had with the car is the way they mount the wheels..i dont really race and mainly bash,and I have a feeling the screws that hold the wheels in are going to snap,so do they have a way to upgrade to regular style hubs?. Also what are people running for brushless? I plan to run 5000mah nimh at first then go to lipo.

LOVE THE TL-01 BUGGY!!!! A little off topic but.....Does anyone know where one might get gears for a tl-01 still? I have two of these things but need the gear set that the motor comes in contact with due to a 10t and a curb.

Has anyone figured out a way to use regular style hubs with the nuts and not whatever it came with? The first mod I did to mine is rip of the calipers due to the slop in the wheel hitting them and causing drag. I can see where people bash on this thing and say its junk,but for someone just getting into r/c touring/drift its pretty good. Its crazy durable,I've slid this thing into concrete walls at top speed and I've only popped the axle out once. The other problem is the drive shaft hits the chassis,battery,reciever at high rpm (9t brushed on stock speed controller until it melts). Maybe the drift tires could have some traction because you cant really stop, and when starting on a slope the car sits for a bit and spins in place.

hummmm... something might be a miss if the something is rubbing... i would recommend looking into that, i had painted discs and calipers and it never rubbed,,,

it might be worth looking into the HPI upgrade axles. that way when u screw on the wheel the screw is going into something thats metal not plastic.. and another good thing to get is some ballbearings for the drive line.
