The Valvoline Springnats are back again bigger than ever and confirmed dates for the famous Shepparton Victoria event are as usual the last weekend of November with this year being the 25th to 27th November 2011.

Now into its 19th year the Valvoline Springnats is Victoria’s LARGEST performance car festival that provides the true motor vehicle enthusiast with the opportunity to display their skills and vehicles against other enthusiasts in a safe, controlled and friendly environment.

The venue for the 2011 Springnats is the Shepparton Showgrounds which will again prove an ideal central location with its unique, ready-made paved areas suited to driving events and brand new indoor facility that was very well received by both participants and spectators alike at our 2010 event.

The Valvoline Springnats will again be all about admiring the best cars in the land including Street Machines, Hot Rods, Kustoms, Restored / Authentic as well as Imports and spending quality time with family and friends, whilst witnessing some of the most powerful cars compete side by side in Hi Octane Action Events such as Go To Whoa, Autokana, Indoor and Outdoor Show N Shine, Dyno Challenge, Autofest Corkscrew and everyone’s favourite the fiercely competitive Burnout Title.

The Valvoline Autofest Series includes, Springnats as well as our other events that have been held in Murray Bridge SA, Corowa NSW, Mount Gambier SA and our all new NSW event to be held each year in March at the Australian Mecca of Motorsport, Mount Panorama Bathurst kicking off from the 17th and 18th March 2012. Autofest events attract 100’s of entrants and many thousand spectators over the weekends providing unique environments to compare and compete.

All our events are alcohol free and thus promote a true family atmosphere where spectators are able to enjoy the enthusiasm and excitement of a motor vehicle event in a friendly environment. This has been evidenced by the fact of strong crowd attendances consisting largely of families of all ages.

The Valvoline Autofest Series of events present themselves as fantastic marketing tools for companies to profile their products and/or services.

    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
    • My bottom end was rebuilt... so I think it's standard? Or refreshed.. standard? I didn't do it - I bought it with a lot of receipts but it has new bearings, new pump and was re-assembled. Apparently I have the standard flow, standard pressure pump. I did notice the oil pressure for a LS at idle is quite low, but not critically bad, I am happy that it's at about 28psi now (that my gauges work/don't leak). I would have probably specced the high pressure one, but I'll admit my ignorance after making my other post, I don't see how the pressure spring changes things. Given the pressure is a resistance to flow... high flow should also = high pressure, and your oil pump specifications should be dictated by how the engine is built (hence the sincere thankyou video man)
    • my first time on the track, just after getting the 32. tyres were 3yr old NT01's, rotors were cactus, pads were street pads. You can see the vibrations when I hit the brakes lol. After this is when I put new BDA rotors, Hi Temp Brake fluid and Intima type 2 pads. Wow what a difference
    • I second the recommendation to use a power bleeder. Pressure on the cap, if you want you can try some vacuum on the bleeder too with a hand pump. Pressure is needed on the cap to make sure that everything only goes one direction instead of potentially getting air sucked into the bleeder. 
    • Which one do you use? Your bottom end is still standard isn't it?
