Team Tetsujin Selection Light System (SLS) Initial Look

Team Tetsujin Selection Light System (SLS) Initial Look

Unboxing of Team Tetsujin's new lighting system

Team Testujin released not too long ago a new, modular lighting system for RC cars. It is comprised of three parts, a controller unit, a wiring harness, and the LEDs. The controller unit plugs into a Y-harness that receives signals from your throttle channel. The wiring harness comes with or without LEDs in 7 different options (4 front, 3 rear). The LEDs come in 10 different colors, sold in pairs of the same color.

Packaging (from left to right) - TT-7510 Control Board, TT-7813 LED Set for Front 8 LEDs, TT-7815 LED Set for Rear 10 LEDs

Current Product List - LED Control Board, AC Adapter for Display (so you don't have to have it plugged into a car's receiver), Spare Cable for Front 10 LEDs (no LEDs included), Spare Cable for Rear 10 LEDs (no LEDs included), LED Set for Front 4 LEDs, LED Set for Front 8 LEDs, LED Set for Front 10 LEDs, LED Set for Rear 5 LEDs, & LED Set for Rear 10 LEDs.

Rear Wiring Harness w/ Wire Keeper

Front LED Harness w/ Wire Keeper

Initial Thoughts - I helped a fellow driver install this lighting system in their car on Saturday and made the following observations:

  • One side of the wiring harness is longer than the other so keep this in mind when attaching it to your car body.
  • The wires tangle very easily so cut the wire keeper in half and use it to straighten out the two sides before installing it in your car.
  • Plugging in the LED before installation will help you determine which LEDs go where.
