For as long as I can remember I use the standard RP oil (not the more expensive race oil).

I've been using it for the past 2 years. Seems fine.

For daily driving crap like most of you guys do its fine for 5-7k. However, you can get 0w30M1 which is far superior if you compare VOA and UOA reports. I've posted this crap before and I'm not digging it up again.

I will soon have UOA data on Rotella Synth with 5-hours of track and 1500 miles of street and we'll see if the bargain is effective. Blackstone recieved my sample 2-weeks ago.

I believe this has already been covered in another thread. If you get it cheep go for it, other wise there are better oils out there for the money.
