Hi everyone,

I am not too familiar with UOA and just wondering if this is a sufficient enough test:
http://www.e-monitor.com.au/

I run a car on a race track (non-competitively) and wanted to know how often to change the oil.
I use Shell Helix Ultra 5W40 on a 6A12 Mitsubishi motor with bolt ons.

I'd ideally run about 8 track days a year and would like to have annual OCI (which would result in about 1,000 miles total I would expect)

Seems pretty barebones, but it should be okay for estimating OCI.
