Well here it is. It works very well. The capacitors just barely fit.

The lights stay nice and steady regardless of the power and  stay on about 2 seconds after you stop or deslot.

Lots of fun to drive.

This one has blue headlights to match the body. The next two cars in process of assembly now will have clear white and red LED headlights to go with their white and red bodies. The reason for different color headlights is so you can tell your car from others when racing in the dark.

This car is on Ebay now!

Jeff go Steve Medanics web site for that. Google  Siberia Racing and he has an article on lights and the schematic I used is in figure #3.

Steve is the pioneer in making this possible.

Anyone have a copy of that article or schematic, that website doesn't appear to be working...?

 

Thanks...
