Excellent stuff. Runs very well over points!

Behind the front rad you say? That means I will have room in my sound fitted 08 too... which is crazy! :D
That rather depends on whether anything else is already behind the rad. Also the sound will be taking extra juice which may mean the results won't be as good.

To be honest the sound install was my first and a challenge I set myself. In at the deep end.

Unfortunately it never ran particularly well, even from brand new.

So the sound is a waste on it, the capacitor is a much better choice of 'mod'... that said, I think there's enough room near the rad to retrofit. I used the cab for speaker, side of the motor for the chip.  :thumbsup:

DCC won't fix a poorly running loco. If the problem lay with the pickups they can be adjusted but it needs gentle handling.

Of course, everything starts with clean track and clean wheels.
