+1 Thanks for the link.

My logic for the lighter weight oil is consistent with the Redline article. Loss of economy and power due to too heavy an oil recommended compared to the intended use. Also, Redline oils are much more stable at temperatures approaching 300 degrees (that our motors see during track days) than the Castrol TWS.
