    If it drops to the second/bottom hole it's a quart low or close.

    i usually put it to about where b has it and put some sea foam shit in there. it cleans out most the gunk on the valve... you know like the shell compercials.

    Tell me about less windage while you pick up your rod after some hard cornering. Why run the chance? If you are to trust anyone, trust the engineers who built the thing. Intakes, exhaust, cams, etc.. Those are restricted engineering wise because of regulations placed on manufacturers. But the amount of oil in the crank case is exactly what the team who spent years developing that specific motor decided it needed to live a long healthy life.
