Yep, already cleaned up my pit box to sell any bits I dont need in anticipation.

Although saying that the Sepes racing tuning set is going to keep me sweet in the meantime

I'm actually very curious to see if the steering fits the 417 and removes the slop.

It rained (poured) for 1 hour it took 1 hour to dry the track 20 min of practice then we raced.
Brooms squeeges and 2 blowers and a group of determined racers that were go at drying the track, not knowing if it was going to rain some more! We got the race in it was fun.

+1, a little more durable too imo.

Useful on narrow tracks with unforgiving track markers! I haven't broken anything on my ta05 and it's taken some beating.
