|"I suppose you could plan the song so that the rear tires hit the primary note just when (or just prior to when) the reverb starts. Then you have the problem of different distances between the front and rear tires. I'm thinking the reverb (at least if made to be smoothly falling off) would be overpowering. I think the volume of a given note hitting the rear tires is around 60% of it hitting the front tires (I've hit a few 'rumble strips'..). And you'd have to calculate the best speed to travel to get a good interval between reverbs."
