    I don't use them because of stories like these...but I used to. Never had a failure maybe I was just lucky...wow. With so many stories like this you would think they would rethink things at FRAM.

    MY OLD ENGINE BUILDER SAID NEVER USE A FRAM FILTER ON A RACE ENGINE. THE FILTER WON'T HANDLE THE PRESURE..... HE SWARES BY MOBILE ONE OR A NAPA RACING FILTER FOR ALL HIS DIRT RACE ENGINES, AND WE NEVER HAVE A FAILURE WITH HIS OIL OR FILTERS....

    i have a friend that blew a motor after he changed his oil at the track and put a fram filter on.His said his oil pressure was low low at the end of the track. A local engine builder came by after he blew the motor and told him his pressure drop near the end of the track was from the fram filter. I had a fram on my motor and noticed the drop in oil pressure also at the top end. I changed it and had oil pressure again. I wont run a fram on a race motor again.
