    oil and catch can issues

    We have a riva 3 kit plus a few more mods and have problems with oil blowing out the catch can after a few hard laps there is oil 1/4 the way up the can and oil blown out the filter and all over the exhaust.
    We have tried running the oil at half on the stick which just made the oil warning and limp mode kick in half way through the race.
    Is there an internal filter we can fit in the breather system or should we be looking at a reason why its blowing so much ie rings etc.
    Motor has roughly 50 hrs on it. 04 rxp

    same thing would happen to me....ride it casually, few WOT's...barely a drop....WOT for a good portion, can is over flowing...

    I'm upgrading my can/location to the one that Rodneyae has...

    or should we be looking at a reason why its blowing so much ie rings etc.
    Some ideas mostly from reading the boards...
    Rings shot
    Water in intake tract
    Bouncing off rev limiter,
    injectors too large for setup or leaking
    weak springs
    weak spark
    pinched wires going to injectors or coils

    The catch can needs to be level or above the engine. If it isn't, that will be the result. I NEVER had more than an ounce of smegma in my Stage 3, even at Mudbug going through 3+ tanks of gas in a day.
    The type of catch can has NOTHING to do with it.

    If the can is above the engine, and it is still filling, there is an issue with the motor as Mark has stated above.
