    How do you power it though...

    I'm taking my Alpine head out (doesn't support Aux :scratch:) and trying this out if I can get power in my car.

    There are probably much better ways to do it, but I just ran a 1/4 in. cable out of the Axe-Fx into the aux in on my friends stereo. You'll probably need an 1/8 in. adapter. You can also run it through a tape cassette adapter with a 1/4 in. adapter.

    To power it I just used one of those wall socket adapters that plug into your cigarette lighter spot. If you're using something as nice as an Axe-Fx I would make sure to have a power conditioner between the car power and the Axe-Fx, because I got way over 120 volts.

    Sounds like a real timesaver, it takes me 10 mins to unload my gear from the car and set it up

    Now you need to bolt a stack together, get some bike wheels, a go cart engine, some kind of steering mechanism.

    Do a wheelie right on to stage and jump off while playing an emotional solo.
