I remember those tests with the bearings like that when the vendors would come to my old work selling oil additives like Slick 50, Prolong and another one that I can't remember.

ALL well and good... BUT

this is a European oil.... and the testing is standard roller bearing scuff..

Royal P. leaves lots of residue....

Penrite is great oil.. IF you can find it.....

Valvoline IS right here and cheaper than RP...

ya ive always heard that royal purple was the best but it cost more then the others
My brother ran nothing but RP in the LS1 I built him. Perfect maintenance schedule!! At around 50k the valve covers came off to replace the valve springs (.600 lift eventually takes it's toll:yes:). The inside of the valve covers were CRUSTY!! He switched to Mobil 1.:yes:

I run Valvoline in everything except my chain saws.:D Even the ATV's get Valvoline.

Veno,
which Vavoline oil ? When I go to the track I use the Wix 51060R low
restriction filter and 5/30 RP.
I wouldn't hesitate to go to Valvaline tho.

Thanks
