This was taken from their Facebook page:I don't have a Facebook access. What kind of nu. did you see on dyno. I am a firm believer in Lucas products, just getting into karting and have seen so much debate on oils for the clones.
I have run the so called Wal-Mart brand of oil and have had no issues. Now, I use the synthetic 5w-20 brand Super-tech.Any oil is better than none.... Pick something and stick with it. I like Mobil 1. No walmart oils... Be prepared to get 5000 different answers though.
No claims here, only fact. Yes that is the zinc content of the oil. Zinc is added to oil for wear protection on flat tappet cams, chrome rings and crank journals because zinc will run to heat.This oil is claiming to have 3 times the amount of zinc compared to Mobile 1 and then they are also selling a break in additive pure zinc 1oz to 14oz. I would think there would be a concern regarding galvanic corrosion at this concentration. When two dissimilar metals are in contact one of them will suffer.
This is a brand new blend from Lucas that we have been working on with them for several months now. Now I'm not going to come on here and say "run this oil and your engine will produce a full 2HP more" because we all know that is untrue with any oil in a properly built engine. However I will say that we, as well as the other kart shops that helped test this oil have seen excellent wear, 10-15 degrees cooler CHT, longevity, very very good high heat durability (500+deg CHT) and a power increase over the other karting and automotive oils we tested it against especially at high head temps (475-500CHT)I can see it both ways. All I am saying it has worked in the past for me. Coming from cars, which I know is different, I do believe in it. I could see the difference in the bearing wear, both with and without it. Same oil, same change duration, marked difference in wear patterns. While I know no two engines are the same, I , myself think it does work. I would like to see if anyone has used it, and their thoughts.
