Done some googling - quite a variety of styles and opinions. I think the style you describe - with the lip - looks best for me. The versions with flaps seem a little too complex.
Hi Paul - I have a non-standard (looks home made) winged sump and think I may have been running with too little oil. As the engine is out now I will measure the sump to see what the capacity is up to a height that just clears the rotating crank. I can also add baffles - can you remember what configuration you used for baffles, and what size holes to allow the oil to flow to the pickup?
first time I took my B+ to landow trackday it sufferd oil surge and wrecked the crank and 1 con rod, If you are useing you car for motor sport events I would surgest a winged sump and baffle it. I did this andthe the following year had no problems,
Interesting. That's a bit like bicycle helmets where they reckon a similar thing happens - in particular other road users take more care of an unprotected cyclist then they do of one with all the gear, apparently.
I don't think that I noticed a lot of restraint being exercised in your Dutton though, it looked rather hairy to me. I like a track with a wide run off area (although I've only ever come off twice).
I'm a little surprised that they didn't insist on crash helmets.
