Does anyone else use Red Line's 30wt race oil? It's the only oil I haven't seen that wasn't golden in color. I'm sure color doesn't matter all that much but I've never seen anything like it. Just wanted to confirm this is normal...

Yes, at least the 50W race oil was last time I poured it into my friend's vintage Mini at the track.

thx guys. likely normal for the 30wt to also be green then.

their oil is not red, no is their gear oil. their shockproofs are different colors though, and i think lightweight is turquoise

Looks like it's just their race oils that are dyed green, their other oils are amber. To make it easier to tell at a quick glance what type of oil's in the crankcase, maybe.
