Just noticed after recording with the gopro that the leds flicker, which doesn't look good. What would be the right anti flicker frequency 60hz or 50hz for go pro?

Oh, boy, LED's. You may be more easily served by placing a small capacitor across the leads to the light. It may smooth out the delivery of power to the LED's, taking them from pulses to smooth lower-peak, but close-overall flow. I suspect that on braking, they go full pulse width, so they won't flicker.

Can you see the flickering with your eye or just when watching playback on go pro? Seems like anytime I watch a video playback the lights appear to flicker if they are LEDs.
I think your asking about what setting to use on the go pro right? I'm no help.

Yes, he's asking if a different scan rate of the optical sensor of the camera will fight the flicker or eliminate it.

Often, a camera opens and shuts its motion capturing shutter a little bit faster than the speed of a flickering LED. ... When the frequency of the camera's frame rate per second (FPS) and the LEDs don't quite match, the flicker becomes visible on the camera screen.

You can use video editing software to fix it. I use Davinci Resolve its easier to use than Adobe and free. There is nothing wrong with your lights.
As you know the Lambo uses Audi control systems and it uses a pulse modulated signal to most of their lights.
The pulse is hard on regular bulbs but leds has no lasting effect.
We use to see a lot of burnt bulbs at the dealer and some only lasting a year or two that was until they went to leds.
A pulse signal is great for having a module run your lights and it can tell you when one is out.
Also you can short it with a screwdriver across the contacts and it wont ark but the bad thing is on certain cars it messes with the whole car if you put a led bulb where a regular bulb was.
I put in leds on my Pontiac and I lost cruise control and transmission torque converter lockup. I got many codes in the system.

I wonder if the camera's scanning would slow down by the simple act of putting a neutral filter over the lens?
