cars that frequently participate in auto-x/track events? I was told the higher the upper number the better for these extreme conditions? After going nuts trying to find a good 5/40 synthetic oil, I decided to go with castrol syntec 5/50 (seemed to have the best of both worlds...cold start up protection as well as protection against extreme stress loads/high temperatures). Given the availability of 0 or 5w/30w synthetic oils, I would rather use them, but, if they arent adequate for frequent auto-x/track events, I guess I have no choice. Your thoughts???
