One of the most exciting things about owning a scale crawler, is customizing it. Getting out among friends while driving a Gen8 crawler, that you have personally worked on and made your own, is an incredible feeling. There are many ways to customize the Gen8 scale crawler, but one of the coolest mods, is adding the ability to drive at night. The Gen8 light kit allows you to, not only see obstacles in the pitch black night, but look awesome while doing it. Let your friends drive with their flashlights, while you take the lead and experience night driving the way it was meant to be. Light your own path, with the Gen8 light kit.
