What is the best undercoating for sound and heat?
For sound and heat resistance there is a padding out there that you install between the floor and the carpeting that is a foil backed insulation. Check with your local auto parts store.

The water heating up.
Short answer, NO you do not NEED undercoating.
according to the info i read on the back of my can of undercoating, it only takes 10 minutes. I'd give it a 1/2 hr myself.
you can if you want to but i would not susgest it because then you will have problems under the car and no one will touch it
It is a waste on American made cars, like Fords. They will just break down and fall apart regardless. (Above answered by a bigoted Chevy owner or a furriner)
It depends on what colour scheme you are painting your army for example something like White Scars Space Marines it's best to use a white or grey undercoat but Chaos Space Mar…ines look much better with a black undercoat. I always use black to undercoat my models because then you can drybrush over it, leaving black in the recesses to give the effect of shading. You could also paint your models in the foundation paints before adding another coat on top.
They travel in waves.
Heat is part of the electromagnetic spectrum. In a vacumn particles travel at over 299792458 m s^-1. So that is a lot faster than vibrations (Sound Energy)
The similarities between heat and sound insulators is very small. [The names are imprecise.] A Sound Absorber , to give it its proper name, is usually a light fibrous mate…rial such as cotton waste or open-cell foam. It is possible that the sound level in a room might be reduced by perhaps 10dB or so by the use of sound absorbers. Porosity is often an important property of a sound absorber . A Sound Barrier on the other hand stops sound from travelling from one place to another. Mass and non-porosity are the important properties of a sound barrier material . Concrete or drywall board are quite good sound barriers. A good sound barrier will reduce sound by about 50 dB or so. A heat insulator is a material with low thermal conductivity . Porcelain, or mica sheet are good heat insulators. A Vacuum Flask is a good heat insulator. Often, but not always, a high melting point is an advantage.

Yes,,yes it does!!:)
Yes, yes, and yes. Heat: Water in a pot over a hot fire or stove-burner coil absorbs heat, and eventually boils. Light: Black fabric appears dark because it absorbs …the light falling on it, and there's none left to bounce off of the fabric to your eyes. Sound: There's much less echoing in a room with carpet and drapes, because those absorb sound. A room with hardwood floors and bare walls sounds much more "live".
It will depend on how much undercoating you are wanting to rubberize.
because its a nothing i dont know
Undercoating is a waterproof coating applied to cars' undersides to prevent them from rusting. The parts under your car are also vulnerable to damage from the elements (especi…ally in north climates), oil, tar, and items that fly up from the road.
