See my earlier post? About hard cornering, with low oil level, this is 
sound advice you give, which I have followed since I got first hand 
experience of the consequences of not knowing my car.I believe guys 
who compete T.C. cars in Motorkhana events add additional oil if an 
event is all or mostly hard right turns or they get the same result, 
low oil pressure, even losing the prime in the oil pump, because the
centrifugal force keeps the oil away from the pick up, anyone else out 
there know for sure?


PS: Yes I mailed a "FURRIN" contribution in US $.
