Heh, I'm not too worried about it... although I'm probably going to do a Blackstone oil test every change just to keep tabs.

Agreed. I was thinking of having a blackstone done at the end of track season as well. Couldn't hurt.

The other thing I've been considering is having the DCT oil flushed. I know its a lifetime fill but I am not sure that applies to tracked cars. It's going to be expensive but probably worth it in the long run.

since this thread is full of side notes, I have a question. How bad do you guys think the oil and fluids (in the corvette that I am waiting for) are now that it has been sitting in a garage since 2005? Hmm?

Time to flush everything is my vote.
