Default oil brand

I use and recommend BRAD PENN racing oil.

It's got enough ZDDP to suit me.

20-50 for drag racing.

Nitro 70 for blown alcohol pulling trucks.

This stuff is also so "clingy" its tough to clean off engine parts.

When do you use a straight weight oil such as 50 or 60? I don't understand what the diff is from a 50wt -VS- a 20/50 for example. I see you use it in the alcohol motor...

Hey David,

I finally took the time to read the article w/o being interrupted. I understand now. I like the viscosity of a straight weight oil such as 50 or 60; but with a really good additive for cold starts. On an older engine, it seems like a good comprise in Spring/Summer in my CJ7 w/ Mopar 360 (mildly built). I see good OP @ OT & idle, but I also have a little security in those oils when the temp is quickly fluctuating like Jeeps can do. The motor is broke in well & probably has pretty big bearing tolerances- oil pressure w/ 10/40 @ idle bugs me too much when I look at the gauge & see 8lbs... I guess it is part mental too.

RK: INDEED!! I have learned so much from these dudes.... I got all my carb knowledge here... sometimes at 1AM in the morning. Other times, RJ saved me much pain in the wisdom gained.
