I'm a computer scientist, currently doing a lot of work in the asset tracking field. I do plenty of application design, lots of programming and system administration for a living. I'm not a particular expert in a field but I do go deep into a subject/problem which is probably my only specialty ;-)

comment How to speed up the 4x4 Crawler truck 9398?
You could actually crash the car in a way big lego pieces broke in half, so it was pretty fast, we played with them at work and some couldn't handle it ;-) There is a big diff between the mechanincal power the PF XL and the RC one, but as always: lego isn't about receiving exact answers, but about posing the questions to figure out by experiment ;-)

Indeed, I love that remote, I'm so glad I actually have 2 sets. Found them on ebay at the time, pretty suspicious person selling it but hey ;-) Those motors are really awesome.

comment What was the 12v AC socket for on the 7864 transformer?
Cheers! Didn't know this gem existed in the SE family till today. Wish I had more time to play with my mindstorms sets.

But I see your point, indeed the manual doesn't tell you to use it in the front but on the side, I do remember my dad (the engineer) telling me it was ok to use on the lights, knowing the plug wouldn't survive my curious hands :)

It was capped because it's AC and putting your trains on it would backfire. I found the set I have, there where 4, not 2 : guide.lugnet.com/set/7867
