List a lesson learned

From this video post a lesson learned observation. Anyone that races should take note.

I'll start with the least obvious
Injector length is critical

Don't count on the track safety crew?? That guy was looking at flames for a long time before he got any assistance.

Spot on! Dont count on authority figures to save your ass, and watch out for your friends. The guys on the quad are hero's.

Change your own oil.

$7.50/hr oil change jockeys are a roll of the dice EVERY TIME.

Let them lock up your oil pump once and you'll regret saving that 30 minutes, I promise you.

Here's Mustang oil pump driveshafts (runs from the distributor into the oil pump). See a problem with one of them? I do!
