    Not really. I have seen oil ride up the walls of the block when g loads get high. Depends on how the sump is designed. That is why they have crank scrapers to pull the oil off the crank.

      On a side note, still looking for any information about the "top secret private test" Newman-Haas supposedly conducted at Talladega circa 1993-1994 with Nigel Mansell. More than one person has confirmed that some sort of test happened, but it's always been very scant on details. We just really don't know anything.

        That would've been a very rough, bumpy ride at the time. Not the place for a suspension failure when flirting with 245. And Ol' Nige was complaining about Michigan Int'l's condition....
        You have the IndyCar you deserve.

          Talladega in those days always reminded me of an airport (which of course it once was), and for once I don't mean that in a good way.
