racing and oil

Hey guys, I'll be taking my car to wakefield soon enough and I have an oil change due before I go, so I was just curious is there would be any need to run a thicker or thinner oil than what I normally run from all the thrashing it may cop. Its a 250 2v, and I use Penrite 40, (or whatever the recomended from penrite is, sorry don't carry the oil bottle to work everyday, lol)

Re: racing and oil

hey
penrite 40 is pretty thick stuff.
id just use 20w50 for an old 2v.
if it was freshly built with nice tolerence's still id say run 5w50 or even 0w50 works much better at start up and gives a nice little power increase
