Keep away from speed bumps & raised manhole covers{-}

How low is low?

If you're talking under the motor, I have about 100mm under the sump.
If you have significantly less then some options would be to sit the motor higher, fit a different sump (may involve also changing oil pump pickup) or dry sump. Maybe your wheel/tyre size could increase a little.

Tony,

I have about a 100 mm as well, did not cause me a problem with speed bumps etc on the way to and from SVA.

I think windin gup the Spax will give a bit more height.

I,ve only got 2" of clearance from the sump but have yet to fit the right wheels.after talking to Tim at raceways and explaining this i should have about 3"1/2 inches clearance and will then have to adjust suspension if its to low
