New rotella t4 oil

I use rotella t on clutch/trans side because it doesn't have any friction modifiers (now I will use the new t4). I use t6 on engine side.this t4 has higher temp rating & lower deposits now etc & is the same price as the old rotella t at wallymart,just wanted to share.at $14.00 a gallon there's no excuse for old oil!

Interesting. I've always liked plain rotella. It works well in everything I tried.

I might go back to Mobil 1 15w-50 though. Synthetic is some good stuff

Gonna have to check that out. This lucas is breaking the bank especially at $10 a quart. And I change oil very frequently. This stuff definitely stays cleaner then anything else I've used though.

Lucas h-duty oil stabilizer(non synthetic) Don't forget to put 1-1/2 ounces of this on both sides,it's compatible with synthetic for motor side & is wet clutch safe if you don't put more than what I said above on trans side.im sure you've seen those little displays at the auto parts store where you turn the handle & this stuff sticks to gears like honey.its great for both dry starts on rings/cylinders & thickens oil a little so it's always on trans gears

Is it available already? I thought rotella T is great on both engine and tranny side. Can't wait for this new T4

motor side coats everything so no dry starts & trans side same thing plus thickens oil a little which helps cushion gears.10% of what you usually put in

Hey bud where did you read that it's rated for 600 miles or 100 hours? I never read that anywhere & I used to run that amsoil 0/40 but if you look close rotella has the Jaso rating etc as well @ you will get four changes for $12.00 instead of one.

Plus Morgan recommends rotella & I can only guess how many motors he has split open that ran it & he never voiced any concerns that I heard of

I read it somewhere in the distributor side of the house. im on plans to get my direct acct so I can buy as a distributor so I can get it for all the quads and dirt bikes for the team. and Rotella is not bad but its not a performance oil compared to Motul, Amsoil, Redline.. oils of that quality..

my guy in Baja, has done sh !t ton of engines and so far the best oils we had used are Maxima on the engine side and QuakerState Racing (Mexico edition) on the tranny. those have been the ones with less shavings after oil changes on most bikes. we tried Motul but not in sufficient bikes to test. it did came out the cleanest but again not that many trials to compare.
