  • Revised Carrera Tow Truck with 5 unique sounds.

    This came out yesterday. Carrera has revised their tow truck. You now have 5 sounds to choose from. The weird thing is each sound is for a specific controller ID. So to get the sounds for control ID 5, you'll need the extension box. I may be wrong but that's what it seems like under a quick test we did here. Below is a video of the 5 sounds. It is activated by the lane changer.

    I had seen the different part# a while back and was curious what the difference from the original would be. I wonder if that chip/speaker would fit in a cop car [I opened my tow truck up when I got it and the speaker is pretty big]. I wouldn't mind having a siren in mine.
    Thanks for posting,

        It would be interesting to know why they just didn't go this route with the first truck. Perhaps they didn't think it was going to as popular.

          That's a good point. I think all the trucks will do well. Even though it was a limited edition, the tanker was very popular. Just think if they brought out a track duster truck!

            What are the two different part numbers? With/Without speaker and sounds?

                Track cleaning is where I thought they were going. A track cleaner would be HUGE and that truck is a great platform for it.

                  Just spitballin' here. My grandkids [like all kids] love noise. This would probably drive the adults nuts, but think about this for a minute... IROC , 4-6 tow trucks, each would be programmed to a different ID so each would have a different siren/sound. And you know every kid would be hitting that sound/LC button all the time Oh the humanity

                    That's exactly what my niece and nephew would be doing talk about a race full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
