We have to use the schui wet tyre over here, as its the spec wet.
I was told that sorex brought up all the old stock of the pit wets, they have enough for about 7 years apparently
They do work well though, I did always like the old 21mm wet as well.
The problem with brushed in the wet was that you could easily eat up a set of brushes in one run. As long as you take the right precautions brushless in the wet is no issue... Just don't let the sensors get wet!!!

As for the power cap, erm, that's the standard one that came with the speedo!

My Mk2 waterproofing.
This did work far better. Had glitching after about 5 runs and found this was due to the servo wire going through the same cable gland as the transparent breather tubing, it mean't it wasn't quite sealing properly. Sorted now.
Cable glands are IP68 rated so don't let anything through.

The motor is comparitively easy;

Well I did say you could have some of my silcone adhesive, which as you know worked on my car

I will post some pics of my wet box when I get the chance to take some pictures of it, fans included
