What is that stuff the drivers are using to waterproof the electronics? Is it tack stuff for hanging posters on walls?

thanks,
chris

Yeah, basically, the UK drivers use something called Blu-Tack, the German and maybe some other EU drivers use Uhu brand stuff that is the same thing.

Jeremy Felles definately has the best commentary out there. If you have never had the opportunity to hear him announce a race, then you are truly missing out!

Man Truhe's car was wicked off the small triple! Way faster than the rest through there, but inconsistant in a few other areas around the track.

Morning race fans. Its 6:15 here so we're just rolling out for Breakfast.

It just started to rain. Yeah!

I thought we were gonna get lucky and it'd stay dry, but NOPE. The rain started just a few minutes ago.

I saw some guys built "extra" mud cars yesterday. Others are not so lucky.

Billy and Mike have both installed chassis tape, and Blue Tack'd them all up.

Lou Dawg, built Cavo a second ride, they stickered up a body with no paint, I think it looks cool, I hope they run that bad jonny! And have matching outfits to boot........

I think a few of the AE guys have 2 brand new rides for today.

The Aussie "hill" team all have new cars and were kicking themselves for not bringing their old cars.

Ben learned how to shim a diff last night, set a chirpin diff, and loosen a slipper. All while Fish was flopping a strait..... BOLLOCKS - KRIKY -

Well, its still raining now, and I can smell the breakfast. I'll turn the computer back on at the track and give another update when we get there. Gates open in 40 minutes, and practice was to start at 8:00.

Wish us luck, and start that Reverse Rain Dance already.

WOOT WOOT WOOT Fellas.

That video there is far worse than the 3 horses and the magic candy mountain.
