Overdrive have made some I think, even if they haven't, most kits will fit most cars but you will have to be willing to change your car slightly to make them fit. Swissracer is the man to ask for fitting light kits-he helped me fit one to my Fly Lister.
I have the Oreca light version, and I would like to fit the chassis under the red Zwaans version. So this version would have two lights... I would like to fit the Zwaans chassis under the oreca, and fit it with a light-kit with four front lights, and make the center fog-lights work also on the oreca version!

It does look good. The driver seems a little low though. You normally bang your helmet on the roof in one of those.
I'm not a real lover of many of the Fly Vipers because I don't think their other liveries look right. They look too bright and have 3 year old children colour schemes. This Viper however is superb. I've read that these Fly Vipers are one of the quickest Fly cars out at the moment, can anyone confirm this for me?
The new Fly viper is the fastest thing out of the box by far. beats the previous Viper easily due to its Fly racing motor (as standard in previous 2 releases...not sure about this blue job, though) and slightly better profiled tyres (they seem softer too). The new version is also far more stable (old version had a dropped magnet pod so it tended to hit track over bridges and de-slot). If you want high speed racing then this is your best bet
The only downer I found from this new range of Vipers is that the acceleration is way down on the previous nippy version. It starts like a slug as the magnet has too much downforce. However, as soon as the momentum is up it really tears the previous version down a strip. If you have a flat-out track layout this will be a perfect car, but if you prefer a tighter curvy track, then the sluggish pick up after braking could be a frustration.
It really is a lovely model design, despite rather delicately fitted rear wing, mirrors, and a very flimsy chassis. If you have the horrendous cash spare that Fly and distributors want to maintain for this car, then you will not be dissappointed.
) and I'm not impressed by the performance at all. Yes the motor has some serious zip, but the handling is quite bad really. Not at all as nice and stable and smooth as the Fly Lister or Marcos for example altough they're also front engined. It's narrower by a considerable margin, so that hampers the cornering performance a lot I guess, but that flexible chassis doesn't help either. But I do like the looks
. Very nice
I'll have to spend some more time developing that chassis...
