You should just fill it to the "full" mark. If you are going to do some extended high-g cornering, get the baffle. I've heard of some bad things happening with it overfilled like seals leaking, etc. And you don't want extra oil being picked up by the crank.

Im just curious how much oil you all run in your cars. Ive been told on these to go over the full mark about a 1/16th and by others to go under by the same. Ive just been going to the full mark. Is there anyone who has an answer to this oh so importsant Q.
Sorry if this sound a little stupid, I just dont want to fry any bearings.
