Australia’s quickest Valiant launched new engine oil
MEDIA RELEASE: A new high viscosity 10W60 motor sport engine oil, Anglomoil Roadmaster RASYN GT R60, has been used for the first time in Australia….in a 47 year old Valiant.
The multigrade blend lubricated the six cylinder power plant of Cameron Tilley’s 1969 VF Pacer in the Touring Car Masters round at Mt. Panorama, Bathurst.
The 4.3-litre (265 cubic inch) ‘hemi’ engine built by Cameron pumps out 500 horsepower and is pushed to the limits to keep up with the leaders in the all-vee eight field.
Cameron was using an expensive NASCAR oil before and said since the change to RASYN GT R60 it was the first time he still had oil pressure after finishing the race and heading back to the pits.
RASYN GT R60 is blended from quality synthetic base oils fortified with a balanced additive package with boosted secondary zincs. This was developed to provide the highest levels of protection against engine sludge, varnish deposits and wear.
The 10W60 viscosity remains stable in high temperature conditions. High detergency from specially selected metallic detergents, increased oil film strength and superior load carrying capacity work to protect vital engine components under the severe conditions of motor racing. In particular is the focus on reducing valve train wear and boosting resistance to oil oxidation.
It meets the latest international lubrication standards including API SN/CF, ACEA A3/B3/B4 and OEM specifications for MB 229.1, BMW M, VW 502.00 and Fiat 9.55535-H3.
RASYN GT R60 is the newest member of a family of Ultra High Performance engine oils launched by Anglomoil in 2016 which have been developed for motor sport as well as road going performance cars.
The others are the 5W40 RASYN GT40 – used by teams competing in the one make Toyota 86 Race Series – and 25W60 RASYN GT60. They are all ideal for normally aspirated, turbocharged and supercharged petrol and diesel engines (GT60 can also be used in methanol fueled cars).
They are developed and produced by the privately owned Australian lubricant manufacturer at its Sydney blending plant and sold directly to the trade via their distribution network.
Cameron, the reigning Pro Am champion, has the only Valiant in the TCM field and despite surrendering a lot of power to the Mustangs, Camaros, Toranas and Falcons he is usually near the front of the field.
The engine features a billet steel crankshaft, Carillo billet conrods, roller camshaft, over sized titanium bearings, lightened billet flywheel, 3 DCOE Weber carburettors and a four speed dogbox.
