no.....use joe gibbs 75w110.
several nhra pstk teams use gibbs. great viscosity great oil and decent price.
Ive run RP engine oils for over 10 years faithfully but the gear oil isn't very good IMO

I use it. Won a case before so it lasted a long time. No issues with any of my gears. In fact I had 600 passes on a set and they looked great.

Been using the Royal Purple line since '04. Switched from Redline and never looked back.

I use redline shockproof. The RP was no better than Mobile 1....This redline just sticks to the metal and my 8.8 gears look great
