+[title] Prepare USB Power Connection
+[* icon_note] Only complete this step if you will not be using the 3AA battery pack and you will be using the USB power cable instead.
+[* black] There should be a 12" black connecting cable in Bag 1, along with a BRANCH04 adapter board. You will use both parts now.
+[* black] As shown in the first photo (green circle), connect one end of the 12" black connecting cable to the last open connector on the main control board.
+[* black] As shown in the second photo, turn the car on its side and carefully route the black cable down to the bottom of the car (see the blue line in the second photo), making sure to avoid the tires so the wire will not get caught when the car moves.
+[* black] As shown by the red arrow in the second photo, wrap the black cable around the light bluish gray Technic beam to secure it, so it won't come loose later and get caught in the wheels.
+[* black] As shown in the third photo, connect the other end of the 12" black cable to one of the plugs on the BRANCH04 adapter board, then use a sticky square to attach the BRANCH04 board to the bottom of the car.
+[* icon_note] Make sure the car can still freely roll with the BRANCH04 adapter board attached. There should still be enough ground clearance.
+[* black] You can connect the USB cable to either of the two remaining plugs on the BRANCH04 adapter board to power your lighting setup. Having the power connections on the bottom of the car makes it easier to connect/disconnect for transport without having to open the car up again.
