What does a guy use for a dipstick tube etc on a dart block? Or do you plug it and use one in the pan? Thanks

Plug it and know how much oil your system takes. Some wet sump pan's have a dip stick also.

why is it that so many people plug the dip stick holes?

you dont need it because most pans have a check plug in them and that way you dont have teh dipstick in the way of the headers, or worry about it coming out sometime during a race.

Also it depends on the stroke of the crank. A big stroke will hit the dipstick. So most people just plug it off & change oil every race or 2.
