Gain the Competative Edge for Your Team - with Amsoil's Racing Products
The AMSOIL Advantage
Racing teams want the best protection possible for their equipment, calling for rugged oils that exhibit high temperature deposit control additives. AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils are specially formulated with the best synthetic basestocks and high performance additives to provide tough lubricating protection for all racing engines and systems in the most demanding operations.
AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils are formulated for both water-cooled and air-cooled engines. Conventional petroleum oils break down and oxidize when faced with high temperatures, such as those experienced when pushing your equipment to the limit, contributing to the formation of deposits, sludge and varnish. AMSOIL withstands oil breakdown and oxidation in high temperatures, holds contaminants in suspension and keeps engines running cool and clean.
Zinc and phosphorous additives are extremely important to engines faced with high-pressure conditions, especially motorcycle-type engines, which typically have steep cam slopes, creating high pressure between the parts.
Dave Digba, owner of Dynamic Auto of Elk Grove Village, Illinois, installs Carroll Superchargers that add about 150 HP to a stock Calloway Corvette engine. Dynamic Auto installs AMSOIL 100% Synthetic 10W-30, ATF, and 80W-90 Gear Lube in all of the vehicles they put Carroll Superchargers into.
The Carroll Supercharger turns a typical 285 HP Corvette engine that normally runs at 4200 RPM into a monster that runs at 3500 RPM and delivers 435 HP. The supercharger makes these high-performance cars 25-45 mph faster, and as Vette Magazine said, the added horsepower "makes other Corvette drivers out there wonder if their new Vettes are pulling a trailer!"
The Carroll Supercharger adds about 6.5 pounds of boost pressure to an engine which creates much greater temperatures and slightly higher rates of oil blow-by (oil blowing by the piston). This makes the choice of a high-quality engine oil a necessity.
Originally, Greg Carroll, the creator of the supercharger, specified Mobil 1 as the only lubricant to use in the engine. He wanted to stress the importance of using synthetic oil in this high-powered dynamo to such an extent that he installed a small metal decal on the top of the engine informing customers to use only Mobil 1.
He hadn't heard of AMSOIL yet. After Dave sent a sample of AMSOIL to Mr. Carroll, that decal came off. According to Dave, Carroll felt that AMSOIL was superior to Mobil 1 in protecting engines and drivetrain components. In other words, it's the best oil he's seen.
