Got any pics of your BEC setup?

Thanks! They're nice and bright.
Here's my BEC setup. All my electronics are up front except the RX so I ran the BEC to the back and stuffed it into the rx box.

A little more about the lighting...
Picked up the Gear Head Slim Line roof rack and replaced my old light bar with a Darth Sprocket (eBay) 4in LED bar. Mega bright on 11.1 volts.
Made some L-brackets out of styrene to mount the bar an I was good to go.

Thanks man!
Those are Darth Sprocket LED's as well. They are little 3 diode led pods that are encased in silicone with an adhesive backing so they can be placed almost anywhere.
I was so impressed with them I went ahead a gave them more money for their light bar. :)

Here's a linky.

Sweet! Thanks for the link, the ones I bought have 10 lights but aren't near as bright as yours. Kinda makes it a royal pain to mount cleanly also.

No problem.
Yea, these are super easy to mount and full brightness is only achieved on 11.1 volts. Probably wouldn't look near as cool on 2s.

Got some new Pitbull Rock Beasts and some CI Double Deuce's and mounted them up! Those are some big azz foams...
These fit nice and tight on Axial beadlocks.

Got a chance to test out the Rock Beasts between rain showers the other day.
They defiantly live up to their name even on somewhat wet surfaces. Stickiest of the Icky.
Here's a few crawling photos from last weekend.

Yea, I haven't been out in a loooong time prior to this so...almost forgot how much fun it was to go slow.
This place in PA is great. Lots of variety. I ran for solid hour and didn't get bored in the least!
