g'day,

noticed the other day that after i drive my car hard (hard cornering and braking) it leaks oil. i'm thinking its coming from the breather or something, but the oil level is at the right level.

i want to do a track day on it so i need to get this sorted. maybe i should make up a catch can on the breather. dunnno.

is anyone elses gearbox doing this?

cheers

Lift it up, check/clear the breather in the top and replace any leaking seals. Only way to go about fixing it, really.
