Lake Speed Jr was a speaker at the BBF Tech seminar back in January and gave a real extensive talk on oil. I wasn't there but, I saw it on the Tech DVD that Kristina made. I was already using Joe Gibbs Driven 10w50, and after seeing the DVD I'm switching to the ATI synthetic Type F trans fluid that was actually formulated by Joe Gibbs Driven.

A lot of the guys around here have been using the Brad Penn oil and buying it by the pallet load. Phillip Oakley and I were both impressed by the talk from Lake Speed Jr at the seminar,,,,and he really wasn't try to sell the Joe Gibbs oil, but talking more about viscosities, zinc and phosphorus additives, and special formulas. Anyway we're thinking about switching over to the Joe Gibbs Driven line of oils.

I've used both Valvoline and Royal Purple and have never seen a noticeable difference in performance or protection. Because I like to buy my oil 5 gallons at a time I mostly make my decision base on price and availability. Would I see a big change in protection and performance if I use Joe Gibbs oil, maybe, maybe not.

It all depends on which dealer you talk to, as Doug said, if what you have been using, is doing its job, why change, when I asked the fellow at the seminar to compare the two, Brad Penn, and his he said they were basically the same, one big difference, the price.

I like the Schaeffer's oil myself, but with that said I lost my supplier and I just put the last bit I had in the DD. When I change it next there is a case of VR1 20-50 sittin on the shelf that will be used.

In my opinion ... any well thought-out RACING oil brand will be fine. It is the lesser oils which have the big differences.

Oil preference imo would have alot to do w/the type of racing you are doing. I don't thing a drag race/mud drag/truck pull application would need the same level of oil as would a engine that would be running 30 to 50 lap races in 90* heat. I would love to be wealthy enough to buy the royal purples or the J. Gibbs line,but in all honesty in my application,I really don't think I need it. I think if your bearing clearances and your parts and oil system is up to snuff ,the high dollar synthetics is overkill in a drag race application.jmo of coarse.Smile
