AMSOIL and Racing
Many oil companies produce specialty racing oils for elite groups and do not offer them to the general public.
For instance, several popular oil manufacturers produce racing oils offered only to NASCAR racers. AMSOIL
receives inquiries as to why the company does not offer "special," higher-quality or NASCAR oils.
However, all AMSOIL synthetic motor oils are already formulated to a higher level than competitors' oils, and AMSOIL Dominator Synthetic Racing Oils are no exception. They provide maximum performance and superior protection to all racers, regardless of their level of competition. The same AMSOIL Dominator Synthetic Racing Oils that are used in the engines of AMSOIL corporately-sponsored racers such as Scott Douglas and Brady Smith are available to everyone.
Every professional race car in the world uses synthetics, and most of them have been using AMSOIL for decades. Many have a lot of money at stake with their "big oil" sponsors, who want you to believe that what is advertised on the car is what's running in the engine.
Indy Car racing legend Bobby Unser spoke at the AMSOIL 30th Anniversary Convention. Unser is a 3-time Indy 500 winner, has 25 overall Indy Car wins and is a 13-time Pikes Peak Hill Climb winner. He told the audience how his race car differentials could not survive more than one race up Pikes Peak without needing to be rebuilt, until he started using AMSOIL lubricants. This experience in Bobby's early years of racing began his long relationship with AMSOIL synthetic motor oil and lubricants in all his race cars. Bobby went on to say that "AMSOIL is the Best Synthetic Lubricant made, the Standard to which all others are judged." Hear it from Bobby himself in the video below.
Extended Drain Intervals mean Less Waste Oil, Less Pollution, a Cleaner Environment
"Improperly disposed used oil," according to the Environmental Protection Agency, "is the largest single source of oil pollution fouling our nation's waters. According to the American Petroleum Institute, it amounts to "up to 200 million gallons of used motor oil... dumped every year down sewers, drains or in the ground." API reminds us, too, that, "A single quart of oil can foul thousands of gallons of water."... Continue reading this article
AMSOIL News UpdatesWhat Makes Aaron Rodgers Such A Great Quarterback
What is it that makes athletes like Rodgers exceptional? Is there a common denominator in great hitters, great infielders, great goalies, great quarterbacks and great race car drivers. And is there a way we can use this information to become exceptional ourselves?
|Lambeau Field end zone.|
"Based on athletesâ€™ reports and technology that tracks their eye movements, we know that athletes anticipate whatâ€™s coming next by focusing only on the most relevant cues in an opponentsâ€™ movement pattern. And that this skill changes and becomes refined with training. The eyes of novices are all over the place, whereas athletesâ€™ focus is much more targeted and economical. Across a number of different sports, expert athletes demonstrate similar â€śvisual search strategiesâ€ť. Their eyes focus on fewer targets, jump around less, and they stay focused for longer periods of time than do the eyes of novices."
This is a fascinating concept because in a world filled with a gazillion pieces of information flying at us from all directions, how do we process it all? The key for Aaron Rodgers when he faces down 11 defenders has more to do with which information not to process, and identifying the right cues so as to obtain the most effective result. Crowd noise and stunt maneuvers by defensive linemen are all distractions.
In a world filled with marketplace noise, your ability to make wise decisions can be compromised when you lose focus. When it comes to maintenance of your vehicles and other equipment, you can count on AMSOIL to give you reliable information. Bookmark AMSOIL.com and know that we're committed to providing you with information that is reliable, both on our website or when you need to call our technical staff regarding a more complicated issue.

-Day Three of the AMSOIL Engine Masters Challenge is in the books.
|Students assist with a teardown in the staging area.|
As in years past, forty students from the University of Northwestern Ohio have the privilege of assisting with moving engines from the staging area, hooking them up on the dynos and helping with the teardowns afterwards.It's a great learning experience that would be near impossible to replicate in the real world. Most young builders will get their first jobs in an environment that does things certain way. A later job might teach them new tricks. But here, these young people can work with 30 builders who each apply different techniques and secrets for maximizing power.
When asked what he's learned from his involvement with the Engine Masters Challenge, Michael Kilgore, a student from Jacksonville, Florida stated, "I've learned how technical you have to be with the all the particulars with the parts, and how mathematical you have to be with it. Everybody has their way of doing things, everybody has a specific way they want to do it, so you learn different methods. You have to listen to every engine builder and see what they do and what they want to do. So you take all that and add it together for yourself."
The process runs like this. Engines are unloaded into the staging area. The crated engines are uncrated, placed on cradles on dollies. At the appointed time, each teamâ€™s engine is rolled to one of the two dyno cells where the engines are hooked up. No one is inside the room when the engine is run through its paces, watching the activity through a large window with shatterproof glass.
Although each team still has only thirty minutes to run through their paces, there has been a change in the rules regarding how that time is used. In the past they would get three warm up pulls, after which the team would have three minutes to study the data. They were then allotted fifteen minutes to make adjustments. When this time is up, three more dyno pulls are completed and those numbers were final. This year, however, teams can make as many pulls as they want in the allotted half hour, and choose the best numbers from any pull in the batch. We're certain that this will result in some intriguing new strategies, as we have already seen.
The competition director is again Wesley Roberson of West Monroe, Louisiana who has served with the NHRA since 1968. According to Ed Zinke, publisher of the performance group of magazines with TEN, this competition is significantly different from timed engine building events. And this year's competitors, he noted, are running very tight numbers. It will be interesting, as always, to see what the next day will bring.

-Joe Carroll Talks About Engine Building and AMSOIL
Many of the builders here are modest, and highly respected, among them Joe Carroll of Stonewall, Louisiana. According to competition director Wes Roberson he's a very astute builder. "He does very detailed work and leaves very little to chance."
After pulling some strong numbers we took a few minutes to learn more about his passions.
Joe Carroll: I used to work at an engine shop years ago, and itâ€™s turned into a hobby. Iâ€™m a lineman, thatâ€™s how I make my living. If I had to build engines for a living then Iâ€™d probably be living in a cardboard box somewhere. Itâ€™s a hobby, itâ€™s kind of a passion that me and some friends of ours do.
How did you get into Engine Masters?
JC: We began coming to Engine Masters when a friend of mine came in 2006 and we went to NYC and fell in love with the idea and the people around. Itâ€™s kind of turned into a family reunion every year so we just enjoy coming up here visiting, bringing a piece and see how we stand up against everybody.
Have you been coming every year?
JC: Weâ€™ve come every year since 2006. We came with our own piece in 2007 and have been here ever since.
Your take on AMSOIL?
JC: We love the Break-In Oil. We tried some before in another brand and the motor would kind of huff for a while when we did a Ford years ago. When we got on the AMSOIL, youâ€™ll see a little almost steam come out of the breather before we pull. Then everything seals up and you can tell the numbers pick up on the dyno. That was our dead giveaway on it. The fuel numbers went up so that was a big plus for us. We left it in for I think 15 pulls and we left it in through the whole time. Then we came here and we dropped it and put the real deal in and we saw a little bit more horsepower, so that was a little more of a bonus for us this year.
Have you used AMSOIL in the past?
Weâ€™ve used AMSOIL in the past, and weâ€™ve now gone to running it in our dirt bikes. We use the 2-stroke oil, too. It burns real clean so weâ€™ve been impressed with everything that theyâ€™ve had. Weâ€™ve had to kind of shop around for it but we end up getting it and thatâ€™s all weâ€™ve been running anymore.
