Wonder what their nano structure sheets are made of? Only one time application? Interesting product...thanks for sharing.

It got my attention because of the U.S. government and NASA being involved. I checked this out through Google and I can find reference to it so it looks like that holds up anyway.

Might just be snake oil but it does sound interesting...

I think an application is like $100 and it supposedly lasts for 40,000 miles ?!?

The information presented is very......let's say interesting and/or lacking. Such an revolutionary engineering marvel requiring crowdfunding also doesn't give me much confidence.

Excellent point. It does have me curious. Will wait and see what the oil Gods decide!

If is has nano particles and is the official additive of NASCAR, it has to be good.

I own and operate a local nanobrewery.
There is no friction, and everyone is
well lubricated and happy.
