Needs to be 6mm or bigger...due to surface tension of water.

Coming back to tyres,  for beginner all round tyres I would recommend  Falken ZE914 High Performance Road Tyres

With my Road RX-8 I used to track day, I tried quite a few different sets of road tyres over a few years and this was the one that was not the fastest tyre but was really good at letting you know what was going on under you and would not just let go on you !

(I still use these on the RX-4)
All the best Clive

You looked at lights today Jamie...was having a rethink and i remember Stu on rx8oc having a similar problem with blowing fuse and the end of the engine loom does rear 02 sensor gearbox nuetral and reverse switch...Stu loom was burnt through on exhaust...as it was not secured....theres 2 points that use push clips into holes in gearbox....im wondering if yours is hanging down and the end of the harness is damaged and then you select reverse completes the circuit to a short....Stus car was from Tim as well!!!!

Would seem more logical than the lights as there is little water in there. I'll check out both ends
