James,

The Castrol edge 0w-40 is a true pao synthetic, good stuff so you will have no issues with it.

Cheers

Guy.

Hi,

5w-40 or 0w-40 full synthetic is your top option.

The best are the ester based oils of Silkolene and Motul.

Cheers

Guy.

For the gearbox you will need a 75w-90 semi or full synthetic depending on how much you want to spend.

For the engine a 5w-40 synthetic, top option or a 10w-40 semi as a cost option.

Cheers

Guy.

Dave,

I would definately not compromise on quality if used on track at all.

Use Silkolene Pro S 5w-40

On offer on my website this weekend, 20% FREE!

Cheers
Simon

For the engine as above.

For the gearbox a good 75w-90 or 75w-80. Synthetic is the top choice but semi is also suitable. brand wise, Castrol, Mobil, Fuchs, Motul, Silkolene etc.

Cheers

Guy.

Hi,

The GTX from Castrol is really the basic recomendation, fine if changed every few thousand miles. Next up is a decent semi synthetic 10w-40 tehn on to a 5w-40 synthetic if you really want to treat it.

Cheers

Guy.

Also what about gearbox oil?

Yes they will be ok, 0w-40 is more suitable then 0w-30.

Gearbox oil, 80w-90 or 75w-90.

Cheers

Guy.
