When it comes to selecting oils – especially when you’re speaking in terms of an expensive, intricately-built racing engine – there’s far more to the process than simply driving down to the local automotive repair chain and grabbing a bottle from the shelf or opening a performance warehouse catalog and ordering the brand and viscosity of oil that everyone else does.
Different racing applications, engines, and combinations demand specific oils, and the right and wrong choice can be the difference between more horsepower and costly repairs.
In seeking to answer some of the most commonly asked questions regarding the selection and use of performance racing oils and lubricants, the folks at Royal Purple have put together a section on their website dedicated solely to FAQs regarding racing vehicles.
These topics range from the basics of what product one should use in their race car, to mixing exotic fuels with racing oils, how to break in an engine with Royal Purple Synthetic oils, whether coated bearings may be used, how often the oil should be changed in a race engine, how Royal Purple oils will affect oil temperature, recommended lubricants for use with nitromethane and Lenco transmissions, and more.
In addition to these Racing FAQ’s, Royal Purple also offers FAQ sections for motor oils, oil filters, marine applications, motorcycles, 2-cycle engines, rotary engines, transmissions, and Purple-Ice.
