Oh man - I've been ready to drive now for two days and it's now been raining for 48 hours solid I've got tomorrow off and it looks very unlikely I can drive. Car's setup; batteries are charged and all I can do is take stupid pictures of the rain on my window

Man Mark - I know how you feel. I swear it rained every weekend last summer and really hindered the race schedule. But for the good news, you took a really cool picture of the rain... I want to see if I can do a paintjob like that on my body to see if I can get it to look like it rained on my body but didn't.. Get what i'm saying?

Thanks, John Yeah, it'd be pretty cool to have a wet-look paint job - wouldn't like to know how much effort that'd be, though

Well, the rain should be really heavy tomorrow, but on 40% chance on Sat - hopefully I can get on the track

Cheers, Mark.

Ooophs, sorry to the other guys about the 705 discussions. [/B]
I use a solid diff for the 705 but broke one of the outdrives recently.

I definitely see a step improvement in performance with it!
