Default Car drying technique?

Its really a very lengthy task to dry a car after washing. I usually spend like 2 hours drying my car with the help of California water blade, absorber, and micro fiber towels. Recently I was told to use electric leaf blower for drying the car. But I am confused about this technique. May be the air forcibly lead to some paint damage. Before try this, I need your views on this technique from your own experiences.

My reply is a little beyond post date but anyways. Leaf blowers work great, even 2 cycle gasoline type. Start from top and finish around the car in a circle getting wheels last. Don't use unless car is parked on a clean wet from washing paved or cement surface, otherwise all kinds of debris will get blown around on a clean car no less.

On nice days in ME if it hits 40deg. F, middle of winter I'll use a chamois as a lot of wet sand is present in driveway from hosing wheel wells and underside of car. Then I have to sweep any puddling water and empty the standing water in the hose afterwards before the sun goes around back and everything freezes.
