....haven't really used it in any new engines but seems to help the old ones........i have used it in a few dana80 rear ends in heavy applications, never seen one come back.....there is a guy on the net that posts that it foams up.....so i took one for a rip on the highway by the shop to see if it aerated....pulled the plug and its was perfect no foam from aeration at all.....i'll keep using it

Got a stupid question guys.... If an oil was any good, why would it need any additives or stabilizer????

Lucas stuff is crap. If you run their 50-70 wt oil in any Alcohol or Nitro application you add:

- Their base oil...usually at about $650 per drum
- A quart of ZDDP additive (about $10 per bottle)
- A quart of their stabilizer (about $10 per bottle).

at the end of the day, if you are on a 14 quart system (like my car) I get about 14 oil changes. Doing the math, that makes my $650 drum about $925 to the end user.

I'd say, spend the extra few bucks on a quality oil...

4 different times we tried it, the only 4 times we've ever broken roller lifters. I pitched 3 bottles of the stuff, will never use it again. - The first pair of lifters I'll give it due to age/use, the next were all complete new sets. Same motor still running fine on the same lifters w/o that junk.

I run it in my turbo comp car. Seems to help with bearing wear.
