I'd just like to say thanks to Opie Oils for getting my oil to me via next day delivery in time for the track session at Bruntingthorpe!

Top service!

Simon,

I need 2 litres of gearbox oil for my vts, mostly road use but occasional track abuse.

The problem im having at the moment is that when the car gets very warm i.e. stuck in traffic or haring round a track, second gear is starting to crunch but only when warm. Im thinking that the box oil is getting to thin when warm?

5w-40 full synthetic for the engine, 75w-90 for the gearbox.

Motul and Silkolene are tops.

Cheers

Guy.

A regular street 5w-40 synthetic or a 10w-40 semi if you're on a budget

Cheers
Simon

Hi there

Car is a 98 vts with a supercharger
pistons,cams,exh,filter etc,etc

currently using gtx but have been told that this oil is to thin and has made the engine a bit tappety.

will see a bit a track and strip action and weekend street use.

also what would you recomend for the gear box, it has a LSD if that makes any difference.


thanks.

Its not that the GTX is too thin, more like it isnt up to the job.

With mods like this your really looking to use a quality synthetic, 5w-40 is fine unless engine/oil temps are extremely high.

Brand wise, I would go for either Silkolene and Motul as these are ideal for track/road use.

If it's driven hard a decent 5w-40 synthetic would be my recommendation

Cheers

If it's a stock streetcar then a 10w-40 semi will suffice but if modded or used on track then a 5w-40 fully is best

Cheers
