If you go to the Redline Web site though this oil is listed under racing oils and the statement is made " not for street use"
quote:Yeah that's the 5w-20 SL Streeter oil . I think what one runs into if they were to use Redlines Race Oil long term would be some bore polishing if the additive pack looks like this one . http://theoildrop.server101.com/cgi/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=3;t=000604 Not all race oils are created equal though . Take Synergyns 0w-20 with it's SJ-CH4 rating and their LTS 3w-30 with it's SL-CI-4 rating , then there is the Valvoline dino race oil with around 3k ppm of Calcium and some Magnesium . I know of another brand that has only Diester and Antimony in it Pretty cool stuff in how these various makers go about business .
