UNO NITRO 60
Racing and high-performance engines are typically modified to deliver maximum horsepower and speed. Their powerful designs create shearing forces that can cause lesser oils to lose viscosity, leaving bearings, pistons and other components vulnerable to wear and failure. UNOCAL NITRO-60 SAE 10W60 Racing Oil durable formulation resists viscosity loss due to mechanical shear to maintain a strong protective oil film. It is heavily fortified with zinc and phosphorus anti-wear additives to provide additional protection against scuffing and wear in severe racing conditions (see results below).
- The piston crown contains normal carbon, while the rings remain clean and functional. Note the absence of wear or scuffing on the piston skirt.
- The camshaft shows little-to-no scoring, bluing or wear after 3,000 miles of high-performance racing.
- Maximum Horsepower
- Racing is Research™
- Protection From Startup to the Checkered Flag
- Commercial Availability
