Hi, Xlot:

As for "untapped possibilities", I'd be curious to know whether the chips can be reprogrammed "on the fly". That is, must one use a dedicated controller & track segment to reprogram a car, or is it possible that someone with a hacked controller could send signals or instructions to other vehicles? If so, this introduces some real "black hat" scenarios! For example, what if I don't need to nerf another car, but simply send out a series of random "full power" signals for a range of ID numbers? If that's too obvious, then how about intermittent "brakes" or "lower speed" in the same way?

PS: despite my participation in the "Cheat" thread, I don't see this as anything I'd want to be doing. However, I think that it is at least necessary to determine whether such things might occur, and/or how they could be prevented. mph

Hi Beppe:

That's a relief! One less worry.

I like your idea of having an Allen screw connection -- that type of replaceability sounds very usable. In addition, I think that I'd prefer having the module be smaller, and just installing a separate light kit if I want it.
