Matt - could you not just use a windscreen well nut?

Just curious - I wasn’t sure whether it HAS to be something like you showed from KG...

Well it needs to not have a hole in it like a well nut. Make sure to cut the hole in pan right sized. I know many a loose Pan plug. Need to be able to retain fluids.

This. Needs to be able to retain fluids but also drain on command.

I get it, for sure - I just wasn’t sure whether the orgs with whom you race say that the plug has to be of a certain type or size. I know *they* can be particular sometimes  :D

Yeah even with the screw in it would still leak some fluid. I would also think that size hole would not be drain friendly. Key is front and rear. I found the stuff Julie sells at KG to
Work but it
Is a weird sized hole. I found plugs that have a groove cut in middle can get from 3/4 to 2 inch if you want. I have a 3/4 front drain and a 1 1/2 rear drain.
That way fluid drains under both acceleration and deceleration.
