I see that you're having lots of fun there!!
I had a pack of runtime before the rain began to pour again. The cutout winglet actually made a lot of difference in the handling.
Yeah, suntan lotion works even in our context here.
So does your F104 swing on the rear end with the saddle packs mounted on the rear? Do you think it's more of the suntan lotion that help a lot more in keeping your F104 running on as if it were on rails?

Unfortunately it's more or less odorless - I love the smell of wintergreen
Sun Protection is a very creamy liquid and you need to leave it on for a while for it to really penetrate the foam, even better if you have a tire warmer to help this process.
You will have added traction for 30+ minutes.
