I just put some in mine for tomorrow race at Cecil and I was wondering if anyone else has used this oil, I heard its the best, I'm almost 99% sure that is what guys like Billy Glidden and my Justin Burcham run but don't quote me on that.

Yep: I Like RP

If it is not too miserable tomorrow, I will get around to draining the 14,000 mile 16 month old RP oil from my 98 F-150. Starting to go Rancid. Yes I take care of my cars and bikes, that is why I use good products like RP.

Also I have about 25 tons of stone base to spread so I can get the Cobra through the mud and to the street.

5 long months of snow and I really want to see how the new mod's feel!

i switched to R/P on my last oil change because they are a NMRA contingency sponsor, i was using Mobil1.

alot of the 2v engines are notorious for being noisy when they are first started in cold weather, its commonly refeered to as the 'death rattle'... my car has one of those noisy engines. i noticed that since switching to R/P the noise is no longer there.

im satisfied so far, and ill continue to use it.

RP has been very gaurded in releasing any info on what their "special sauce" is.

Cobra'03 posted on SVTPerformance.com that he found out their special ingredient is Molybdenum. Given that, I will choose to not use RP. Here's why.

No Moly in RP Products.

The additive package on RP Products does not contain moly.

Nor is it a highly chlorinated lubricant, so it is safe for aluminum.

Today I change the oil in two vehicles. My 98 F-150 driven 14,000 miles with RP in the crankcase, mostly city driving and my girlfriend's 97 Explorer running conventional oil for less than 5000 miles of highway driving.

The Explorer oil was much more rank than my F-150.

Says a lot for a good synethic oil.

Besides changing the oil ,I spread 25 tons of stone base today. The back yard is still awefull muddy. At least most of the snow is gone except for a few piles. I think can get the Cobra through the mud and to the street.
