Well I decided to go 3 instead of 2 track days and accumulated 5K miles as well. Thats an increase of 1 track day and 2K miles over last report interval.

Two things I notice:
1. Iron is up from last report but down overall from initial reports
2. Tin, although low (I presume) is at its highest

Blackstone certainly seems to like the report laugh

Here is the report:



cheers

its a bit suprising to find TBN of this high for such high performance usage on a car that can handle it , hosepower wise.

keep up good work!

You are definitely asking the wrong person.

It will be fine on a P1, I've seen people do the multiple 1/4 miles with Fram's OCOD on and still drive home, lol.

He probably asked because your Insolubles are so low at 0.1.

Way to go using the previous UOA data to justify extending out the oil further. It can definitely handle it.

Absolutely outstanding! Thank you for sharing the UOA's and I would definitely take tpitcher's advice and extend your drains, It is definitely safe to do so. BlackStone's drain advice is good on this one. 7-8k would be a cinch.

Excellent results. Nice oil choice for this car.

Those are great results, but not all that surprising IMO; especially given the 8 quarts oil capacity/dry sump setup. Glad to see you're using that car for exactly what it was made for though smile

The dry sump Corvette engines hold over 10 quarts of oil actually! smile

Okay, thanks. Any insight on the trends in Tin and Iron. Or why the ZDDP levels are up ??

I am not questioning their drain interval recommendations. But I'm just not comfortable going more than 3 track days on the same fill. If it were not for the track days I would certainly go 7-8K.

I'm much more concerned about trace metals and their trends. I am looking for any preliminary findings that could indicate motor issues. My first motor blew up at 87K with Mobil1 3w30. Do any input is appreciated.
