    I think the tt shop do them. Not cheap though if memory serves me right. If you know anyone who is confident at welding alluminium then give it a go

    Baffled sump? Track use I take it? I doubt you will find any designs but would be easy to design providing you get clearances correct. Not what your after, but I was reading into those accusumps a while back, ideal bit of kit, especially if your expecting loss of oil pressure. Also reduces wear on startup

    EEK!

    This scares me a little! Not had a problem YET in mine, but most definitely looking to get a baffled sump soon!

    What were the signs before it went Rob? or did it just suddenly start knocking?

    Bill runs a Backdraught sump, sticky tyres, big brakes and a light car will be the issue for you Nick... if I was doing serious tack day stuff like you I would be considering a baffled sump tbh... the Backdraught ones are based on the SEAT Sport sumps done for the factory race cars...

    the pictured pro-alloy one makes me nervous of the rubber baffles only being retained by their 2 little "pips"
    I have known 2 sumps of this "ilk" detach a rubber baffle, which unluckily for the owners got sucked into the oil pickup pipe, causeing loss of oil pressure and.... well, you can imagine.

    SEAT Sport sumps, of which there are copies of, have a large full width rubber baffle which does not come off. This is the type I run and use, and they are now available thru backdraft motorsport
