That's OK, I like the concept of this thread.

A couple that come to mind right away:

The Paragon On-Board Comm Drop pack (I forget the actual name for it). It was a small plastic bottle with a tube and needle that was to be positioned near your motor. This device would 'apply' a comm drop to your motor intermittently during the race.

The Hyperdrive: the belt drive system designed for electric cars. (long before they made their own car). Problem was, to make this work, you needed either 1 of 2 things. Either have a motor that ran backwards, or you had to have the ability to put this device on the left side of your car, instead of the right.
