Default Water proofing products for electronics

I'm preparing my touring car for wet racing here in the UK.
I'm after advice on the following products that I've heard of being used.
I'd like to know how each one dries and where best to use it

Corrosion X

Plastidip

FSC

Thanks guys

Try conformal coating, they sell at frys. You will need a UV light, by far it's the best I've used. I use to be into Rc boats, that stuff is really great.

+1 on the Conformal coating...... It works! use about 5 thin coats over the circuit board waiting 1 hour between coats let dry a full 24 hours after all coats have been applied then reassemble.
