Are any of the autocrossers and road racers out there running either of these oils?

https://www.amsoil.com/shop/by-product/motor-oil/racing/dominator-10w-30-racing-oil/

https://www.redlineoil.com/30wt-race-oil-10w30

I know a few of you guys are running dominator with success, looks like RL's 30wt is marketed the same way - less detergents, lower OCI, high ZDDP. Curious if these are appropriate for my car (strictly autox, few street miles, 1-2 HPDEs, ~3k mi per OCI). Sounds like it, and I'm not a big long run change OCI guy on my race cars, I save that for my dailies.

I run Dominator 10w-30 in my circle track Honda Prelude. H22 engine with 213 WHP. This is full blown race car though, not even close to street legal. Gets ran HARD (8500+ RPM laps at a time). Very short OCIs though, 4-5 races which is only a few hours on the engine. Performs great though. Managed to overheat the engine bad enough that i lost compression and had to tear completely down, and all the (at the time) stock bearings looked mint.

interesting - mine is way more street car, per what I detailed above.

I guess what should be done is a UOA with TBN, at my usage of 3k miles and autox/hpde etc., and see how much is left and use that to judge if it is more appropriate for "hard run" race but still street cars.

unless anyone else on BITOG has this info already?

Of note, RL mentions engine cooling directly, though I'm sure if you had a failure bad enough no oil would be the difference in preventing that

I not only Autox'd my Evo's of the past but went to tracks all over California.

I ran Redline 5w30 in my Evo 9 MR running at 26lbs of boost WOT making 340whp on 91 pump, stock internals (minus cams). I ran it like this for 5 yrs. NO ISSUES. I did find that using Redline vs M1 on track dropped my oil temps 20c according to the mechanical gauge I had in the car.

I am a Redline fan after seeing the type of heat my Evo's saw. Not only pushing higher than stock boost, but tracking in 100F+ heat. There were sessions that the Turbo was glowing red, and having UOA's done my reports always came back very good.

My Vote on Redline. Though I used 5w30. Some of my Evo's UOA's may be on this site somewhere if you look haha.

If you still have a cat, maybe try a 0w-40 full synthetic street oil? No experience, but heard they do really will in performance applications.

I do a fair amount of track work. In my Miata, I ran Mobil 1 0W-40. In my S2000, I used to run the same, now I run Red Line 10W-30. In my NSX, I run Red Line 10W-30. And in my SC400 I also run Red Line 10W-30.

I know folks that run everything... AMSOIL, Castrol, Mobil 1, Red Line, etc etc. I don't know if I've ever seen a motor that blew up due to the oil being run.

No racing oil is meant to be ran out to 3k miles. They have very little TBN to combat acidic byproducts. I run Redline 30wt and from talking with Dave, their lead chemist, he recommends not running longer than 8-10 hours or 3 months.

I havenít seen any engines blown due to the brand of oil they ran, but I have seen several H and B series engines that ate a cam lobe or 2 due to running todayís emission oil. But that only applies to the solid valvetrain Honda engines.

I have a 05 STI which is mostly a street car. I sometimes do autocross and drag racing events. I use Motul 300V 5w40 and have stable oil pressure at high oil temps(100-110C) whether its from long highway pulls or aggressive mid to high rpm autocross cornering.

ahh ok. acidic byproducts then, happen regardless of usage (highway/light miles). so there will be buildup and these oils don't have the TBN to combat that buildup. acidic buildup then leads to corrosion. straightforward enough, i suppose. guess you can't have the best of both worlds.

aside from very high zddp, i was hoping to find oils that combat aeration as well.

may still do a 3mo uoa of this, 3mo uoa of dominator, and see what comes up.

I've had good luck running M1 0W-40 in the M42 of my Club Sport; it was my track rat from 1996-2012. Now at 145k it is still running great. The N55 gets BMW(Shell) 0w-30 and has survived quite well so far. If i did more track days I might try something else.

No I never used the full blown Race oils and this is why:

1. My cars I tracked were also daily driven. Race Oil in a DD car? Not a good idea, and too expensive to switch out all the time.

2. Redline 5w30 Did it all. Took all I could throw at this oil in the CRAZIEST of conditions. I mean, You folks have NO IDEA haha. When I took the valve cover off to upgrade my cams the head was so clean I could eat off it. When we took my Turbo off to check for wear? The Journals looked frickin new no black marks, nothing loose, I mean looked BRAND NEW.

I dont have pics of the Turbo apart, that was done at night and was kinda a fluke thing we did on the fly, but the cam job I do have pics just on another PC I will see about posting so you can see.

All in all? The 5w30 street oil is all I needed.
