    Bent a wheel on some high FIA curbing a few years ago during an ambitious late apex pass. The bent wheel rubbed the caliper a titch. I figured it was like free machining for added lightness ;-)
    I did have that corner inspected by a decent race shop immediately after, and I rechecked the hub(s) several times myself since then and there was no (<3/1000s) runout on any corner.

    this stuff is more like grease and very pungent.

    It sticks to the gears and the interior walls of the casing. Maybe it reacts different when under temperatures, but we're no experts in gear lubricants. removing the lubricant isn't easy, maybe gas will do it. Not sure how to clean it up. First time running into this product.

    thoughts?


    more updates: the throwout bearing is toast. the rest of the clutch shows wear and tear, but still works quite well.

    what was the word on what was put in ? At first I thought there was water in the oil as it looked emulsified, but then after your comments it is much thicker and sticker. May not have allowed enough cooling & lubrocity given it's tenacity to stick ? I still am a firm believer in using a box cooler to keep oil temps manageable.

    This looks like Redline diferentail oil. Looks almost like crushed brick and sticks like wet clay. Good for difs. Do not use it in transmissions.
