modifying oil pan. need help
I have a RC51 in a Quad that i do competitive hillclimbs with. It does kick ass but i want to shorten up the oil pan more. Currently i have a oil pan machined out of billet aluminum and its shortened it about 1-1/2inches. i trimmed the relief valve a little and shortened the sump tube also. After 4 years of running i m doin larger and larger jumps and the oil pan is hitting the ground more and more.
I would like to shorted it up so its only about 1 in deep or less.
My questions are;
-what can i do with the relief valve? plug it?
-Can i do something like a dry sump set up?
-how much oil should i run?
-can i over fill it even though it would have the correct amount of oil in it?
It only runs for a couple minutes at a time.
I m sure i ll get responses saying it can t be done but that philosophy does not exist in my garage
