Capacitors and other electronics?

1) Hi Ive heard that some fly cars have a capacitor in their lighting set up, it seems like a good idea to me, does anyone know the specifics on this capacitor or upload a macro picture of it. I would like to try wiring a capacitor into one of my lighting setups.

2) Has anybody wired sound into their cars? If so do tell...

3) Feel free anybody to please chime in with electronic ideas for cars.

OK Maverick,

I will give that a try, I could wire a resister in to keep the voltage down, besides which, a resistors needed for the diodes anyways.

Thanks, soapy
Yes Ive heard of the capacitor in the controllers trick. I am not so much interested in carrying speed or adding length in stop and start races, as I am in charging the lights in the straights to keep them bright in the corners. I suppose you could put a capacitor in the car to help carry speed but I suspect it may not be big enough to make much difference, diodes on the other hand draw very little power. I will let you know if I find anything out though Lotus.
