In Reply to: No need for a 15W-50 Synthetic Oil in a M3. posted by Bob ///M3 on June 12, 2000 at 14:57:03:

Out of curiosity, I asked a bonofide racecar driver about oil weights, composition, and brand. Of course, the engines and applications are radically different from the typical M3 driver.

When he drove the Lenco top alcohol dragster, they used straight 60 weight, and changed it after each 1/4 mile run.
