VP Hi-Performance Gear Oil SAE 80W-140LS is a mineral base, high performance, GL-5 extreme pressure gear oil with anti-scuff, anti-wear and extreme pressure properties providing outstanding protection against low speed/high torque wear and high-speed scoring applications. VP applies a 3-pronged approach to lubricant design for remarkably stable oils that allow race engines of all types to achieve extraordinary performance and durability:
- Improve the ability of the oil to cling to metal components by improving viscosity through the use of select base oils with polar characteristics.
- Add a balance of multiple anti-wear chemistries beyond ZDDP into the oil that adhere to metal surfaces to create a protection layer.
- Add unique friction modifiers that reduce fluid- to- fluid friction and surface friction between the oil and moving metal components to unlock horsepower and torque.
