Just checked the oil level and it is spot on, nothing in the catch tank either....bizarre.

Did the car sound loud(er) or quieter?


Ive not heard you run before, plus the exhaust was on the wrong side to where i was viewing. But it didn't sound all that loud, there were louder cars. Your noise didn't seem excessive if you know what i mean.

I did see a guy with a sound level meter and a stick at just behind the start box. Did he not check you? I saw him checking a few cars as they approached the start. Im guessing if he didn't test, he didn't think you were that loud.

No oil swill in a straight 1/4 though. Has it been worse on right hand circuits? (like Llandow+Mallory)

It isn't likely to be related to lateral G, the Raceline sump has been on there for many years without having an issue. It is more likely to be the result of me testing the traction system at Blyton Sprint and causing bore wash. New plugs and an oil change seem to have cured the issue.
