people with R/C/R LED tails

to the people with RCR LED tail lights, can you either have someone hit the brakes for you or pull up to you window of walls or whatever and see if your tail lights have a delay from the third brake light to the LED tails? mine has a second delay from when i hit the brakes, the third brake light turns on first then a second later the tails do... i just wanted to know if this is normal for all RCR LED tail light owners. TIA!

Doesn't sound right, I went with Eagle Eyes LEDs and don't have this issue.

i know thats not normal, ive had other aftermarket LED tails before and i just want to know if i got a dodgy set or if there all like this....I do think its maybe a DEPO problem, because on my last coupe i had DEPO LED tails and the brake lights didnt do it but the directionals did, they had a split second delay compared to when the rest of the blinkers came on.
