5W50, 10W30, 10W40, Redline, Mobil, others?
I have always run Mobil 1 full synthetic in my drag cars. I just went to Pegasus in New Berlin, WI and picked up some Redline oils for the engine, tranny and differential and some Water Wetter for the radiator.
I am not sure I got what I should have though when it comes to the engine oil. I read what it said on the Redline site about the different oils and opted for the fully synthetic Redline 10W30 but am now wondering if I should have gone with the 5W50 that Ford runs in the GT500's and Ford GT's.
Just curious what others are running and why? I want to be able to run it on the street as I drive the car almost daily, but have the protection needed for the track. I believe the 10W30 is perfect for the street but not sure if it is the best option for both street and track. It will never see winter driving so spring, summer and fall weather (50 farenheit or hotter) is all the car will drive in.
Thanks to all who reply.
