Should I use Crankcase Sealant?

    Some background info is that I am part of a formula one team for college. We use a dry sump oil system with a custom oil pan manufactured on campus(we plan to manufacture it outside soon) and have been experiencing oil leaking. We plan on using gasket sealing on top of our gasket to solve or help our problem hopefully and I just wanted to seek opinions on this solution.

    It can't hurt. That custom sump mating surface is probably not completely flat after all of the welding that was done on it, unless you milled it after fabrication.
