comment Does the Power Functions IR Remote Control 8885 make a good remote for a car?
Good answer but bad news. Seems like the train remote would work just as well. I think what I need is an IR transmitter for my phone or to program one of those universal remotes. But even then I'll have to press up up up up to get it to go faster and then down down to slow it down. Not great.

Oh, and nice find on the product description . . . that's about as good a confirmation that it should work as I could get. Interesting that it's not on the box or description for the Western Train Chase.

Are there different versions of the Erling? The ones I have don't have an open back.

Looking at the picture it seems the wheelbase on the train motor is much wider than the Train Chase set. Maybe it's the pictures deceiving me again.

@LarsTech Done. Though, I think the train itself is inconsequential . . . I wonder what brick could hold the light no matter what the application!

Wow. Now I really do want to get the Shuttle Expedition just to see how different it is while the build is fresh in my mind. Alas, my Lego budget was blown on trains! Seems it'll be around for a while though.

Bricklink is solid gold for this kind of info. I wonder what kind of stability issues? And why did it go from 16+ to 14+? And why different names? More questions than answers!

comment As of November 2011, should I buy the NXT 2.0 now, or wait and buy the NXT 3.0 later?
I thought it was released in 2006 . . . it's been out a long time.

comment What are the best options for building a LEGO RC car?
@Coyote I wish I had links! But since the NXT 2.0 supports bluetooth it should be possible to control it from a phone and I'm sure I've seen that (though it was probably too laggy).
