CLINTON, Mo. Champion Oil has introduced its new Synthetic 75w-140 Racing Gear Lube. Purpose-built for high-performance and racing applications, Champion’s new gear lube is engineered for both gasoline and diesel vehicles and also is excellent for other severe duty applications such as towing, off-road driving and commercial use, the company says.
According to Champion Oil, the 75w-140 Synthetic Racing Gear Lube outperforms conventional gear oils by providing exceptional anti-wear characteristics and cold-flow properties. This new gear oil is designed to lubricate components with extreme-pressure additives that are more viscous than those found in other fluids.
While many racing and performance applications still use mineral gear oils, synthetic gear oils show better resistance to oxidation, better flow at start-up, and better retention of viscosity at elevated temperatures, according to Champion.
The Champion Oil 75w-140 Racing Gear Lube, available in five-gallon pails, is produced to withstand the extreme conditions of both on and off-road racing gearboxes, transaxles and rear differentials. It contains Champion’s Shock Load inhibitor (SLI) chemistry, designed to absorb abrupt load transitions helping reduce heat, wear and friction. This is an extreme pressure lubricant recommended for use in conventional and limit slip differentials and transfer cases in both performance and racing applications.
