okay guys, theres a spot reserved in my garage for a new car:eek: just ordered it and ive got to wait 2 WEEKS! so i thought to pass the time, instead of just telling you, might be more fun for you to guess... jayce and chris already know what it is, i got a set of rims for it too:D
guess away peeps:p

what colours is it available in, and which colour is yours?

I am guessing from your signature that it's an AWD... Chassis set or ready set. That is the question.

Bearings or without...

Hmmm...

Spill the beans Liam!

Is ittttt the Calsonic skyline?

yup:D now youve got to guess what skyline lmao, r32 or r34? (isnt that hard)
oh and sry for the nooby question, but is it safe to plug a comand logic light kit into the battery terminals instead of the motor terminals?

That's where you're supposed to plug them. Otherwise you get blinkey lights.

My 6 light kit is motor terminals :o.

Theres 3 terminals, put 2 under one terminal, 1 under the other.

You get a constant dim light then they light up when braking/accelerating.

I put mine under the power and one under the negative.

Hey Chris, that can't be right mate, think about it for a moment, if you were to put both +'s on the motor + and then the - on the motor negative, you would get no power until you pull the throttle.
What is happening with yours is, the moment you pull the throttle, you are charging the capacitor in the light set and that gives you the 'dim' light you talk of, but it will fade the longer you leave it without throttling again, that is the way it is with my monster light set, it stays on for about 2 mins after you have unplugged them.
But if you put one + on the back outermost + and the - on the back outermost -, you will get lights on all the time, the other + usually connects to the motor + and gives brighter lights when moving. Connecvting it the way you have will just give dim lights with slightly brighter ones when moving, connect it the way i describe and you will get bright lights, with even brighter ones when in transit!
Just make sure you get the right wire to the right + or you may blow something.
As a general rule, make sure power does not flow through the wrong direction of an LED for more than about 1 - 2 seconds and it will not blow, just tap the wires where you think they should go, if it is right, it will light up instantly, if it is wrong it won't, if it doesn't light up straight away, dont leave it connected.
Trust me, i've blown a few sets figuring all this out!

It's not supposed to go there at all. Hense why it's blinky. No one drives full thottle all the time so it'd be pointless in a night race.

Thanks for the description :S.

But... Straight from my manual:

Connect the wire in yellow and black to MOTOR (-),
Connect the wire in red to MOTOR (+);

Duno how it works.. dim/forwards/backwards but it does, ill be ordering a new kit for my new ASC so ill take a vid...

Thanks, Chris

Waiting suck's, especailly that long! That's why I like 3-4 days EMS option. But your user name is 575, which is a Ferrari 575 and that's an MR02 chassis, not an AWD. Confused.

tom- it said on the website its supposed to go there- but the descriptions gone now, i know where its supposed to go now atleast:rolleyes:
marc- your right lol, the 575 was my first car, im still running it for hfay, runs nice but the chassis f%&#$ up and gives really bad motor conections- ordered a clear chasssis to sort that out now;)

That's only 2 wires, you said there were three, i'd say if that is the description, and there is a third wire, that probably goes to the mains power of the battery, then it would use the - of the motor to earth itself and that *should* give constant power to the lights, and brighter when running!

The clear chassis is just as bad, its all about the colour, or lack of colour should i say, the clear/smoked chassis are weaker and more prone to cracks/screw thread stripping, if you want to go for the less likely to have these problems, go for a standard dark grey or black. They are stronger and more pliable.

i think the shop i ordered from ran out so it was clear or pink:o should be here tomorow, at least i'll have something to do whilst i wait. then i need to leave the 02 forever and only drive it, i tend to break it just by touching it:o

i decided against them now lol, i think theyre cool, but im trying to keep the 575 plain and the skyline would look too cluttered imo. and they wont really do on the landrover lmao:rolleyes:
