    The thing is our engine internals are coated with DLC so the ester will stick to the surface...

    I've got a bottle of RP to use tomorrow but found out that it's PAO based not ester >< might actually be for the better...

    Nissan 350Z with Advan RS Wheels
    These wheels are very popular for evo's, they look pretty good on this 350z

    I am going to Philip Island on 30th May, so have Motul 300V to go into the car for the weekend (+fresh filter). Will go back to Mobile 1 after that (with filter) as I regularly see 125DegC on the track, even with the oil-cooler and a sump extender fitted to increase the oil capacity for 6.25 litres. Daily drive temps are around 85degC with 95DegC in stop/start traffic if I ever see it ... but I used to see 135+ oil temps before fitting the cooler .. and that would put the ECU into limp-home mode - a real PITA

    Leaving hi-viscosity oils in the sump knocks ~10% off the fuel consumption and is not a recommended thing for cold mornings (my car starts @ around 5:45am in NE Melb - Yarra Valley - most days .. so winter-time cold-start wear is always something to be concious of).

    Something to note is that ester-based oils are really only of benefit in a High-Temperature/High-Shear environment, like on a race-track, because the molecules of an ester are highly stable under these conditions. On your daily drive, and even the occassional spirited drive through the hills, it's unlikely you will reach a temperature where these types of oils will give better performance than a non ester-based synthetic oil.

    Also (and as mentioned in the article) an ester-based oil will break down faster than a non-ester based synthetic (unless it has industrial diamond nanotechnology or whatever). Personally, for daily driving, I think it would be better to pick a mid-range synthetic oil and double your service intervals, rather than spending up big on an oil with chemical properties not suited to the application.

    Hi guys,

    Im from Melbourne. Ive got an 08 350Z which I'm currently building up for the track. I call my car "turn in bitch". She has got a couple nice sets of expensive lightweight shoes and should go a lot faster when I finally finish all my upgrades. Anyhow here is a photo of her in high heels.
