    C7 Corvette track toy and weekend cruiser what oil

    Love this forum, everyone is very helpful and also help solidify my oil selection on my last track toy / weekend car, which was a 2013 ZL1. I currently have a 2016 C7 Z51 Corvette with a dry sump that holds 9.8 qt of oil. The car is only driven on the road course, autocross and then on the...

    Oil for 2013 Camaro ZL1 road course application

    Another question for you oil guru's. My second analysis had 2,730 miles on the oil where as this most recent one had 5,029 miles (and twice as many track events). In the comment section Blackstone mentions that normally aluminum shouldn't increase with longer oil runs. But what about iron? Same...

    <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: tiger862</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Problem is with coolant not oil. Sounds like lack of air flow to cool. Bigger Flow radiator as well as better water pump for racing. The oil numbers look good but if you did more...
