"Matt - could you plan the sequence so that the rear wheel contribution to the piece comes out as reverb?"

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."
