What oil do you all run on alky and how many races do you get?Our oil still looks good but just was thinking about changing filter and running another two races. Just would like imput. Thanks in advance

we have been running either vr1 20w50 and changing every 2 races or Royal Purple and changing filters at 2 nights and oil at 6.

Just my opinion but i would drop the oil treatment. I have never been a fan of addititives. If the oil isnt good enough to use without additives then i would find a different oil. Any additives that are necessary have been blended into the oil at the plant.

I run Kendall 20 W 50, it used to be great, still is acceptable. I think that there are a number of good oils out there. I use a NAPA gold 1061 filter. If it is tacky I will run it two nights. If it is dusty then it gets changed every time. I put a dash of Slick 50 in every time, about 4 ounces. I run an alcohol soluable oil in the fuel, at half the prescribed rate. If I put in more it colors the plugs.
