If you’re interested in learning more about how motor oil really works and how to maximize the performance and longevity of your engine parts, then this video is probably for you.

Scott from Driven Racing Oil spent time with our friends at Summit Racing answering frequently asked questions about various oil types and how to use them most effectively.

Scott will answer questions like:

  • How long do I leave break-in oil in my engine?
  • Is break-in oil just for flat-tappet cams?
  • How much zinc do I need in my oil?
  • Which viscosity do I need for my application?
  • What does the W mean?

Learn what bearing clearances and operating oil temperatures have to do with your viscosity, and why high-zinc, low-detergent oils are important for newly built engines and engine parts.
