Redline Oil

Redline is typically used within a small niche of particular racing engines. Outside of those, it is suitable for use in a race, but it is hardly ideal. A good manufacturer will recommend that you purchase this only if you don't intend on doing heavy-duty high impact racing, or if you only intend to do so infrequently.

However, you should consider Redline oil if you routinely race a car with a bracket engine, 355 Sprint Car engine, or World of Outlaw 410 engine. Those particular engines seem to benefit substantially from the Redline, whereas others are simply left a little bit wanting. In well balanced engines this oil is simply suitable for use, rather than being an outstanding contender for use or offering benefits. In summary, Redline oil is a good day-to-day oil for the casual racer.

Royal Purple Oil

The manufacturers of Royal Purple have every right to that title because, at the moment, it appears that Royal Purple oil legitimately is the king amongst the high performance oils. It not only holds up marvelously during a race, but is also versatile enough that it can continue to be used even after the race is over. Clearly, Royal Purple oil is the best oil choice for any true racer.

Joe Gibbs Oil

The typical Joe Gibbs engine oil is synthetic, viscose, and highly blendable. These synthetic base oils do make it compatible with methane and high octane gas formulas, making it a good choice for certain race cars. However, there is little evidence that Joe Gibbs oil provides any kind of long term benefit, or is in any way helpful for the day to day maintenance of the car that it helps to run.

However, the Joe Gibbs oil appears to have its place in the world of racing as a specialty blendable oil to serve particularly creative engine conditions. Considering the ingenuity of the current racing generation, it seems that the role of this particular oil may easily expand as the variety of engines expands.
