Maybe if you fabricated a small l bracket off of your new shock towers, you might be able to throw some on the rear at least personally since I'm not huge on the scale side of things I would prefer to drill too small holes in that deck you have on the rear cage point them towards the rear tire


R.C. means both;Remote control, and Rock Crawler.

I was actually thinking about almost the same thing except mounting them to the frame rails. One of the issues is the wires.

Those look like theyíd work, but Iím trying to reuse the Traxxas rock lights since I already have them from before I removed the inner fenders.

I was looking at that also. Iíd like them to light up around the axles. Thinking about glueing them to the underside of the frame. Also tucking the wires into the frame and holding them there with a dot of silicone.

I imagine some 3d printed mounts that mount to the frame rail with the lights at an angle under the rail, if that makes sense.

Maybe this until you get your printer? LEGO light buckets

NightOwlRC utilized legos, maybe you can do this and sand the top down so itís flush and not just a Lego on the side of your cage.

Orr you could get your printer early lmao!

U got any axial light buckets? The bigger squared ones may work to mount the lights in. Plus it has a mounting hole on the bottom for a screw

Try to email PoloCreations! They're great, and their customer service has been incredible thus far! They also have a smorgasbord of lighting options (most/all 3d printed) but they offer custom kits for certain RC models, maybe they'd be willing to design a bucket for cage-style-mounting! Or modify an existing product to accept you TRX rock lights but mount how you'd like them to? Ill message you the number you can even TEXT them at! Thats how i handled my exchange/return and they've more than taken care of me!

Thank everyone for the advice. I decided to glue the rock lights to the frame for now. I ordered a tap so I can eventually drill and permanently mount the lights. Also I used a few dabs of clear silicone to manage the wires in the frame rails. Only time will tell if the glue holds.
