Tim! (or anyone else who might know)
I'm getting close to getting my race job 45 ready to hit the track. I even had it out for a little run around the other day. I found a bunch of things that I was not satisfied with & need work - the brakes, the clutch, the shifter, the throttle, the carb tuning... Other than that it was perfect! I've got a few things sorted out already & the rest are well on the way to being sorted. One big issue is going to be carb tuning because I can't run it around the streets to tune it. I've got a friend with a dyno but I gotta get coordinated with him to get my scoot on his dyno.
I've been studying the AHRMA rule book to try to make sure I'm prepared, but I got one stumbling block I would like some advice on. The rule book says "dry-sump machines must use a pan with a minimum capacity of one quart, or approved oil-absorbing material with a screen backing and fastened securely..." I have looked around the interweb & I haven't found any pics of handshifters with any kind of device to meet this requirement. Is this a new rule? How have folks been meeting this requirement? I'm kinda stumped on this cuz there's no room between the frame & the bottom of the engine case, & if I go under the frame the pan is gonna hafta be huge to be at all effective. It will have to go far back enough to turn up a lip to make the rear of the pan, & to do that it would hafta go behind the tranny. I'm stumped. Any ideas out there?
Road America is just over two months away & I got a lotta work!
