May be you guys from Hangar 111 may tell us differences between the 3 sumps currently I know (Lotus, Moroso, Komotec)?

Moroso and Komo-Tec are essentially the same.  I've not seen the Lotus solution as yet.

In the meantime, this illustration gives you an impression:

Yeah, that's the current production version …. steel pan.  The original aluminum version was a beauty, but super costly.

I'm at Lotus tomorrow. I'll see if I can't get a picture of one of them that isn't attached to a car. :ph34r:

Let me know if they've made a start on the full cage on my 2-Eleven ?

Oil starvation isn't just caused by surge in the sump,  it's also (and perhaps moreso) that oil which has just been pumped to the top of the engine no longer has so much assistance from gravity to drain back down to the sump. 

Good remark for the understanding of the oil system. Thanks!

Dani, Lotus used accusumps on the Cup255 as well as the 2-Elevens to deal with possible oil starvation, Both those models did not come with a baffled sump from the factory.  Nevertheless, pretty much all of us that ran those cars in Lotus Cup had baffled pans installed as well for peace of mind,  Perhaps a case of belt and suspenders….:)

 

Very interesting, good to know it! Thank you for the information!

 

By the way... I did not know the expression "belts and suspenders" ... great!

Gav, have they found another GTE tucked away in a corner for you to buy or are you looking at a 311 B-)

I remember with the Radicals, if I you were running slicks then the baffled sump was a must really. I suppose some of the more track focused tyres being so good, then the same would apply. So Trofeo, Cup 2, AD48, ZZR etc etc.

For the piece of mind, the accusump maybe a perfect solution.

I figure it will always be worth something and as i said, it's required to maintain warranty. 

Its probably overkill to fit it, but i have trofeo tyres now so the Gs will increase. I've heard of a few V6s registering oil 'moments' when their ECU data is downloaded.
