    How about sound?

    I am just thinking out loud would sound be cool I know they can put sound on HO trains and I have a 1/16 Sherman tank that has a great sound system.
    I wanted to put a really cool signature but I ran

    a nice and loud "Choo choo" would be perfect to go with the HO trains

    When I was a kid I a giant Knex remote contol top fuel dragster that had a sound box on it. I still have it at my parents house to put I think the box would be to big to cram into the 1/8. And if i rember right its tied in with the motor some how. But it was cool because had the idol sounds and then you could punch it and it would scream. They tried the do some kind of stanging thing with it by throwing a turbo button on it.

    You should see the sound system for HO power loco the biggest thing is the speaker. If you can put one in a small train you would have no problem fitting one in the dragster.

    Tamiya has awesome sound/light units for their Hi-Lift trucks and for the eighteen wheelers. They are very complicated and obscenely expensive ($300). A unit for the dragster would be much more simple and therefore cheaper. I can see years down the road with the Ipod integration, where to get new features and functions, you'll just have to get an app. The ESC's will be like small computers, capable of all kinds of things we can't imagine now. You want to go faster? Want to turn on the sound? "There's an app for that!" I believe that this is just the tip of the iceberg of what's coming. Remember when 3000 mah's of NiCad power was insane?

    My point is you can please some of the people some of the time, you can't please all the people all of the time.....

    I guess the best suggestion... A boom box with car sounds.....
