Here's a quick shot of the Champ Pans oil pan we are using with the windage tray removed. Champ also provided the pickup. This is an eight-quart pan, which will provide enough volume of oil to help keep things cool. Notice the dividers. Each is equipped with a trap door that only allows oil to flow one direction. This helps keep oil trapped in the area around the oil-pump pickup so that oil can't move out from underneath the pickup thanks to g-forces in the turns. If that ever happens, your oil pump is left sucking air and your bearings are as good as dead.
