Slicks and Blown Engines

Recommended Posts

From Roger Becker at the US LOG and confirmed recently by Nick Adams, shoding your 2-Eleven with slicks and running it on a track that has fast left handers severly risks oil starvation and subsequent engine failure. The 2 litre Accusump will not protect the engine in long sweeping left handers with "slick" grip! Adding any one of the larger oil pans that adds oil capacity, has baffles, and even "trap doors" is no guarantee. The only failsafe answer is a dry sump system, something that Lotus is currently working on.
