This is the difference..pretty interesting to learn this. izso you knew about this?

I love it when people tell me that their Sumo engine oil, their "racing" oil, or their JTX engine oil damn good.

A glimpse inside Mobil 1, and I believe the big boys like Shell, Total, Castrol would have something similar in terms of R&D.

Oh, and keep your "race proven" engine oils. Race engines are rebuilt annually or after EVERY RACE. So unless you rebuild your street engine every year, don't be a freaking idiot and tell me your race engine oil damn good for your STREET car.

it's easy to feel you're doing the engine good with lighter "racing" lubricants but it's just not the case in real life where the "advantages" are too minute to justify the product

The racers with racing oil in their street driven vehicles is gonna come after you with their pitchforks. Their race proven oil nets them 3HP more peak power on the dyno yo! Dyno proven! Hope they rebuild their engines like race engines too.

Which is funny, how often do you drive at peak power on the streets.
