Driven Racing Oil to Host Technology Seminar at SEMA
On Thursday, Nov. 1, Driven Racing Oil will host a seminar focusing on how advanced coatings and emerging lubricant technology work together to improve engine performance.
Everyone knows that thinner oils make more power, but that usually comes at a price - engine durability. Looking ahead to 2017 and the increased CAFÉ (Corporate Fuel Economy Requirements), engine manufacturers are turning to emerging technologies to gain valuable drops of fuel economy.
The use of coatings (dry film lubricants) and advanced synthetic base oils enables engine builders to use lower viscosity oils without compromising on durability. For street performance enthusiasts, this means improved fuel economy. For the racer, this means increased horsepower.
The seminar, moderated by Lake Speed Jr., from Driven Racing Oil, is scheduled to include Paul “Scooter” Brothers, Comp Cams; Ken Hope, PhD, Chevron-Phillips Chemical; and Tracy Trotter, Calico Coatings. It will be held in the Las Vegas Convention Center, Grand Lobby, Vehicle Technology Center from 10:00 - 11:30am. There is no charge for SEMA attendees to attend.
