    I use VR1 Valvoline Racing Oil I thought about switching to Brad Penn but have had great luck with this oil.

    Any synthetic oil, We use Royal Purple XPR 10W40 Racing oil in 90% of our engines using alcohol.
    We have been doing a bunch of reading on the Joe Gibs racing oil, supposed to be the best on the market.

    Not sure on the pinion angle, I am not a driveline or chassis specialist.
    As for the oil, we run 10w 40 and 10w30

    Most times oil gets milky with alcohol is becuase tune is too rich.

    Old Fashioned if you can find it C I -4 Grade 15-40 Fleet or Diesel oils work very well for anything except blown. Blown you need heavier oils.

    In Chevrom RPM Dello it is called MUlti-Grade. Avoid the LE or Low Emmision. Shell Totella T if you can still find the CI-4 classification oil. Careful Shell is printing the CJ-4 to look like CI-4. The difference is that the J is combining with the C at the bottom but at the top is separeted. I found this with a magnigying glass after buying a buch of oil and it jsut didn't look right on the API symbol. NAPA also has good Fleet Oils. Remember it has to specify as API CI-4.
