There is a guy here on LotusTalk who makes and sells a kit to put a drain in the back of the "groove". Cheap and easy to install.

Looks like the seal is there. I would not take the chance. Metal-to-metal is good for me. I installed a MotoRad and it has been great so far.

The one thing I would change is that I would want to have my hands at 12 and 6 on the launch to handle that crazy first left turn.

I have autocrossed.

I teach 9 and 3, don't move them if you can help it. For nasty pin turns, pre-position at 12 and 6.
