    I use it on all glass except t-tops. RainX helps eliminate water spots (it is better than not using RainX).

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    i just use it on the front. If your not going fast enough, the drops tend to stay clung to the window surface until there is enough momentum to blow them away.

    Rainx kicks ass. I use the Rainx wiper fluid as well, so I can easily spray more on the windshield as needed...

    Everywhere, on my jeep. Only on the windshield of the TA, as I never intend on it seeing the rain again if I can help it (I only apply it b/c I've removed my wipers). I even use it on my jeeps headlights as well, keeps the waterspots down alittle.

    When applying to your windshield, apply 2 coats of it, it makes a difference. I've noticed that at around 30-35mph it works (when freshly applied) versus only 1 coat which is around 40-45mph (depending on rain).

    You need to drive faster usually 50mph or so will do it. That is one of the things I like about rainX makes drying the car with the leaf blower so much easier. The water just blows right off the glass and leaves very little behind. Hardly ever have to towel dry the glass.

    Try waxing your windshield. It works about like RainX.
