If you are looking for the brightest light it definitely won't be the Slot.It kit. I've installed a couple of these and they are much dimmer than stock Scalextric, SCX, or Fly lights. I think Overdrive advertises they use the bright Xenon lights even in their basic kit - headlights, taillights, no cap.
You can see pictures of the Slot.It kit installed and glowing on this page which also has links to tutorials on installing all the other kits but the Kelvin Lights.
Guys thanks to all who told me where to get the light kit i went on getslotted and bought mine straigt away! But even better than that!! When you sign up you get 50 loyalty points worth £5.00 so what would have cost £10.99 cost me £5.99!
Now i gan get those new guitar stings!! lol!
The trick with installing lights (anyones) when your main goal is to light the track well is to take extra care when lining them up. One kit might be brighter but will not appear so if not installed right.
Point the LEDs down slightly (a few degrees only) to light the track,
Point them straight to light barriers and walls etc and
Point them upwards to make them appear brightest to watchers and yourself.
Same applies for rear lights, if you point them down they will appear dimmer to anyone watching from a higher viewpoint than the car.
This might seem to be obvious but most seem to forget that positioning is important.
