Virtue Laser Eyes, Are they worth it?

Are they worth the 25 dollars over the stock eyes? What are your experiences with them? Thanks

They're colored stock eyes. They aren't any better or any worse.

there has never been any proof that they drain ur batteries faster...

The voltage sent to the eyes is the same either way, the board controls how much they get.... so theoretically there should be absolutely no difference

supposedly the stock eyes are faster. but only by a few nano seconds...nothing that you could hardly notice

if u look up chumanfu's (sp?) mod site... he did a test on the speed too, and if u replace the resistor... u can make the laser eyes faster than the stock eyes too...

I made my own, including the new resistor...

only good thing is if you have to replace stock eyes and warranty is expired they may be cheaper lol and with the laser you can see when there dirty easy for trouble shooting

I'm pretty sure none of the original posters in '08 are ever going to come back.
