With the g-Machine aspirations of this engine build, the sump and lubrication system had to meet some specific requirements. Oil control under acceleration, braking and cornering were vital, while reducing windage losses and controlling the oil were also important considerations. Under road-race style demands, nothing will compare with a dry-sump system so that was the system selected for our g-Force Hemi. The four-stage gear-driven Missile dry sump pump system is a thing of beauty, operating in the Hemi application without the need for cogged drive belts as with most dry-sump applications. The Charlie's dry-sump pan offers excellent windage control and a much lower profile than a deep wet-sump pan. This will be a big aid in getting the engine set as low as possible in the chassis, benefiting ground clearance as well as allowing a lower center of gravity.
