Higher rpms use more oil. Every time the piston goes up and down you burn just a little bit from the cylinder walls that gets by the rings. Moving the piston up and down a lot in just a few miles would then logically use more oil than cruising in top gear over the same distance. I don't think that is a lot of oil for what you were doing with it.

sounds like your rings finally loosened up a bit. That says a lot about how damn good John Day builds engine.

Nope, I ran about 50-laps today and didn't burn a drop...and I also drove in "rape mode" all day.

I now have the M-tuned rear stuff with the sport calipers. I went on and on all weekend about how awesome these brakes are.

I gave a ride-along to a kid who works at the track on the side and drives a lot of cars and he was raving in the car about how deep we were braking. I have the sport master/booster, TSE biggest kit in the front, sport rear rotors with 1.8 calipers...it's ******* disgusting. It's so easy to brake the car down on the limit, every damn time. Front caliper temps are still only 290*f, rears are down from ~500 to 360*f. The second thing the kid ranted about was how smooth the car was over the massive bumps.

It was 103*f today in my last session. ZxTX, spoolin2bars, and I never got hot on the water. I almost broke 200*f today, lolol.

Sorry for the aimless self praise over my equipment, this car is "hooked-up". Now I have to figure out why JZ is 3-seconds under me.

Sounds awesome! You're running with the +36 15x9 6UL? I seem to recall that you used to have the original +40 15x8 6UL. Does the TSE kit fit over the +40 15x8 6UL?

I cooked my front brakes my last track day with the front sport rotors, Wilwood dynalites, and XP12s. I'm looking for more brakes but I only have the +40 15x8 6UL...

It fits with the 5mm spacer, but it needs a bit more offset to give enough clearance, I have no problem streeting the Gen1 8's. You can get a big-enough, 7.5mm spacer at Pep Boys and with longer wheel studs you'll be fine.

I also cooked those XP12's, I do not cook Hawk DTC-60.

The next TXMC at HHR might be my last track day for a while. My GF is moving to Houston for the PhD, I'm trying to get down there with her, and it's probably going to mean cutting my income substantially if and when I can find work. Maybe NASA will let me work corners on Saturday to run on Sunday.
LMK if you move down. Several of my friends corner work/drive at MSR all the time and I can get you in touch with them.

Thanks for the good info. For some reason 7.5mm seems like a lot of spacer, I need to do some measuring. I'd also want a hubcentric spacer...I suppose I could get a 10mm H&R machined down.

Makes me wonder if I shouldn't just try a radial mount Dynapro Mini kit like bbundy.

Mine aren't hubcentric, I don't use the hub-rings, and the car goes just fine.
