is there anyway to make my taillight modulate by just picking up some parts from radioshack? i know a lot about electronics and soldering (rewired my last car to incorporate new sensors and such), just dont know what i would need to get to make it work. thanks

i wired up a flash from a disposable camera using a relay to 'push the button' when i first kick the brakes on. i also put a big series resistor in the power circuit so that it takes a good couple of minutes to charge up so nobody gets pissed. it works pretty well, and it's not blinding or anything. just a little snap to grab attention when i first hit the brakes at the end of a long stretch. that little flash tube fit right in between the 2 bulbs.
:D
