I can't argue with you there, but I've never had a problem with that on 
my Midget, and I drive it in the rain quite a bit.  In the trade off 
between brakes that stay too cool to be effective in the dry and having 
to be extra-cautious in the wet, I'll be extra-cautious in the wet.  I 
might feel differently if I lived in Seattle or somewhere else where 
the rain/sun ratio was even worse than Ohio.
