If it shears down to 17 cSt it would match the spec sheet smile

Love that oil, just wish it didn't cost so much. I use M1 V-Twin 20/50 and M1 0/40 in a 50/50 mix for the add pack in my S2000.

Mobil 1 Race 0W-50?

I have never seen it for sale anywhere.

It's only available online. I have never seen an auto parts store carry this oil.

Not at $20 to $25 a qt. Can you see some kid come in and grab 5 qt's and the bill is north of a C note.

It looks like Mobil just takes Mobil1 0w40, adds more VII to get it to a 50 weight hot, way bumps it up to 18x the moly, and 2x the ZDDP.
Really shows they believe in moly for extreme running.
Of course maybe there are more esters and PAO in the base oil, no way to tell from a VOA. Wish that part of the puzzle was available.

Starting with a sump of regular street Mobil1, use this stuff as make-up oil to keep the level at full over an entire OCI, replenishing used-up additives as you go.
