One of the things we learned while at the iHobby Expo was that our friends over at Sunshine Systems are now distributed by Horizon Hobby. We have been huge fans of the Sunshine Systems LED lighting kits for rc cars since we first saw them about a year ago, with them now being distributed by Horizon they should be much easier to find in your local hobby shops. If you’ve never heard of or seen the Sunshine Systems kits before check out THIS link for their official website, we highly recommend them.

Sunshine Systems, whom we first met back at IHobby 2011, are lighting up the place with their selection of RC ready LED light systems. New to the product line is a new connector thing that allows you to daisy chain together multiple strings of light systems. Go back to our IHobby archives and check out the review we did of these lights to see how they standup. Spoiler: we liked ‘em. Then check out the Sunshine Systems web site for more info.
We take our BASHER APPROVED award very seriously around here, and it’s rare when we hand one out. That being said, we would like to congratulate the Sunshine Systems folks on their LED Ground Effects Kit getting the latest award. You can read our full review of light kit here.
We have seen a good handful of light systems pass through the office, and none have taken the beatings that these have. If you need to add some serious bling to your ride, make sure to check out the Sunshine Systems site for details, and our review.
THE Sunshine Systems RC LED Ground Effects Kit Review
So… I’m up on the drivers stand at iHobby and “Top Jimmy” Swift was standing next to me. I notice Jim’s Slash pulling over to the side of the track and he then proceeds to pull a wireless remote out of his pocket and turns on a set of very bright lights he had mounted under his truck. Jim then proceeds to use the remote to cycles through different colors and “effects”, finally settling on a shade of purple with a strobe effect. I stood there in awe. “You have GOT to be kidding me!” was running through my thick Cro-Magnon skull, it was simply too cool to be believed.
Fast forward to 2 days later when Brian walks over and says “Cubby, I’ve got a set of lights for review, do you want’em?”. I never volunteer for any extra work but this time I piped up and said “Heck yes I want’em! Consider the review done!”.
So here we are… is the Sunshine Systems LED kit worth your hard earned cash? Read on…
