    If you were able to program an alarm that was rpm dependant it might be useful

      On a rally car i was involved in we had a trailer stop light on the dash attached to signify low oil pressure.

        We have a gauge in place of the stock dummy light. The car has been running without a baffle/scraper or light since 2013 on that car, but it has never been this quick (rule changes in the series with points/lap deductions vs modifications, better tires etc). Will be installing an oil light, and baffles/scrapers in the oil pan for the next event, needless to say. We were over 4 seconds faster per lap vs last visit to the same track, and a few of the same drivers.

          Have you thought about using an Oil Accumulator and placing it on the rear of the car for weight distribution?

            Installed several oil accumulator setups as well as diff/trans coolers over the years, but honestly, unless you are doing rigorous long races, they hold up well in e30's. The e36 platform seems to heat up diffs far more than engine oil (more tire grip, more power on the same sized diff carrier/ring set, heavier car). A very simple oil cooler and small e-fan or ducting goes a long way.


            The current e36 sprint car sees oil temps matching, or lower than coolant temps, in the neighborhood of 169f maximum. Took 2 1st place and one 2nd at the last FARA 300km event in homestead Miami two weeks ago.
