Hey all! There has been some interest in getting a new LED group buy going. I figured I'd post up and see what kind of interest there is.
Here is the link to the sight that I will be ordering through: http://shop.motorsportsquared.com/product.sc?productId=119&categoryId=20
Here is the link to the parent company with more items that are available: http://visionxusa.com/

I will primarily be ordering transom lights but there is all kinds of goodies on these sites.

That said, we will get roughly a 20% discount if we order more than 15 pieces, and around 15% on 14 pieces or less. Buyer will be responsable shipping this time. I ended up paying out of pocket to complete the orders last time.
This is not limited to just the transom LEDs.
If you see something else on the site ie. tower lights, o.e. replacement bulbs for your rig, fire extiguishers, off-road lights, batteries, flashlights... essentially anything on these sites are available in this group buy.

I can not answer any tech questions regarding anything other than the transom LEDs, but I can attest to the quality, as can any of the other members that picked up these lights last fall.

Everyone in the last group buy seemed to be very happy with thier lights.
To those involved in the last buy: please feel free to comment on the lights and/or post up pics of your lights so people that missed some of the other installs can see.

If you do have any tech questions send a pm to Msquared (Darick) here on the boards. He's very helpful and should be able to answer your questions.

I'll let this thread soak for a week or two before I consider a closing date.

Happy shopping and happy modding!
I've included the Supra forum in the buy to help us get to the 20% off.

Here is a few pics of the lights I've done.
The LSV has 1 white flood, and the X-1 has 2 red floods. Both are insanely bright, especially in clear water.

Not bad at all! A drill, a couple of drill bits, a little wireing, zip ties, some sealant, and a switch. I'll do a "how-to" when you guys are ready. Really its very easy. 2-3 hours start to finish if you have everything.

I did a complete "how to" originally but it got deleted some time back. Its stickied over on the supra forum but the pics are missing. Should still be helpfull.

I've got a message in to Darick about colors. When I know, you'll know.

Anyone who did this last time, post up some pics!!

Newty, in the pics above, would you call the water clear, dirty or just normal. The red looks great, which is what I would want, but I know the water can be deceiving depending on the clarity.

This is a single blue spot light taken at dusk:

I think that I'd be in for 2 blue floods to add to my spot, especially if we meet the 15 units and get 20%.

Water had some algae so it was a little murky and green. I'd say water clarity was 4', meaning you could see the bottom in 4 feet of water. The red was bright no matter what conditions we were in. He also had 2 lights which makes a difference.

Not an awesome picture but this is in water that has visibility of one foot or less.

The install was not bad (especially with the write up). Did it last winter. One Red flood is what I did and it is really bright.
As far as transom LED's go - they are the bomb for the price. When I do upgrade to my next boat, I will definitely be doing these LEDs on it.
If you are planning on doing the LEDs these are quality pieces.

As for pics..........I didn't boat much after dark so I don't know that I have any. I'll take a look and if I find some I'll throw them up.

What color is your interior? I would base my decision on that most likely?
I do like my RED light on the transom and matching RED leds in boat

I have a black mobius... I am doing Blue... but my LED's are blue as well. You guys gotta watch these red LED's... gonna get you rods and cones all screwed up.. like the Kenny Rogers Chicken sign.

I'm going red on my black boat put its bc I have red accents and red interior leds. Remember blue will spread further than red.

Kg, you have red accents on the boat as well. That will look great.

Congrats! You getting it from Diggs?

I'd likely go with blue or white and put 2 on. It will make a huge difference, besides whats an extra $200 when your buying a new boat. The interior lights that SC puts in the Supras have a hot white with a light blue tint. I think either would blend nicely, unless you plan on upgrading to different lights later.

I've heard blue attracts bugs but red does not. I have no experience with this but read it on wakeworld or here. Idk if you are planning on doing leds on the interior too but it's something to think about if you want the interior to match the transom lights. You could get real patriotic and do red and blue, would be pretty awesome for 4th of july fireworks on the lake.

Newty, I saw on your install photos where you noted that there's only room for one on the transom of the LSV due to where the flat spots are. Is that true or is there room for 2?

Pretty much, unless you want to mount them on the outside edges, but you'll need some sort of spacer blocks to make up for the curve of the hull.
You can see from the pic there isn't much room.

I'm in for a red or clear (white?) flood. I need help to decide, I want to see into the water because I think that would be cool, but my interior LED's are red. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

Jm - does the obv have space for 2 on the transom? I wanted two for my LSV but there's not room.

newty

Yes there is plenty of room. The hull isn't nearly as curved.

jmvotto
10-25-2011, 03:58 PM
Yes canucklehead put one on each side of the exhaust. Search for his per install. He has good pics of it.the obv is flat on the back though.
