Luigi gave his all battling those dreaded air-cooled, track oilers down in Monterey. When Jim conducted his routine post race inspection he found lots of metal bits in the oil filter element:

But he fought well and beat all but one of them. Here's the video:

Until the port-mortem results are in, I'm guessing those bits came from the main or rod bearing(s) and suggest inadequate lubrication, though the oil looks pretty clean otherwise.

But I've been known to fall out of my tree occasionally, so let's see what the pros at Racecraft turn up. I suppose the oil filter would not normally have been dissected, but there was a failure, so good to look into it.
