I absolutely need an accumulator. It has nothing to do with being a rec rig or a race rig. I take just as steep of lines as anybody else does. Sometimes an extra 30 seconds is all it takes to be able to drive out of a situation. I would say in my first two days out without it, I probably saw the oil pressure gauge hit zero 10 times. As soon as I put the nose up high, I had about 10 to 15 seconds before the oil pressure started to drop. This is why I put the accumulator on there in the first place. That problem is solved now. I have not seen the gauge drop since installing the accumulator. Not that it will never drop, but I have always been able to get back off the incline soon enough to prevent that from happening.
