    Why 28C. It survives in the body at 38C?

    FIIK. Ask the virus. Probably has something to do with being exposed to the atmosphere.

    And the way I understand it is that RAM makes a specific version for Australian conversion? Fascinating, I had no idea.

    Correct but I remember reading something about HSV buying a specific version of SS Comaro
    ( for South America?) that had a closer mix of equipment for our market.

    Argentina market has similar regulations

    The first generation of SS was sourced from that supply chain but there is no special model for Australia
