3Racing introduce two new pit accessories in the form of a LED backlit setup board and a LED pit light. Starting with the setup board, it is designed for cars of up to 220mm in width and sports two bubble tubes to make sure it sits nice and level on the pit table. A pink-themed graphic allows the LED backlight to shine through for a bit of added illumination in dark surrounds, without being to harsh for the eyes. The setup board can also be used in combination with the second new part from 3Racing, a LED pit light. The lamp is of a foldable design and it can be used as a stand alone device but it also is attachable to the aforementioned setup board using a threaded bushing. There is no release date yet but both accessories should be available soon.
