Following recent successful tests we've decided to
continue using Ravenol Oil for all of our
dynotesting, not just for 'back to
back' performance testing comparing against other oils but for all of our engine testing and devolopment.  

We are also currently performing consecutive tests using Fully Synthetic Ravenol 10W-60 RSS (Racing Sport Synto) against Ravenol 10W-50 RSE (Racing Sport Ester) as a straight performance comparison.

For all of our dyno testing as of now we are using a semi-synthetic 15W-50 RFS (Racing Formel Sport) oil until futher tests with other oil consistencys from Ravenol oil are complete.


19/1/2013

This week we have been testing a batch of Ravenol RFS Racing Formel Sport oil, against our standard conventional testing oil. So far we have been quite satisfied with the performance.
We are now taking part in a long term friction test program over the next 12 monthes with some Ravenol 15W-50 Semi Synthetic in a Diamond Series 2.

When the engine is due for its rebuild, we will perform a full analysis of the wearing componants in the engine and compare to simular spec Diamond Series II's using a our typical recomended oil.

During the year Dennis Marshall (Marshall Cooke, American Le-man series competitor in 2002/3) has successfully created a Metro 6R4 conversion for the Millington Diamond engine (now badged as a Metro 4M4) and is currently manufacturing cars that will be available for hire in 2013. With a successful shake down rally in November under it's belt, an entry has been secured for John Indri to drive the same car at Brands on 12th January. The project is gaining momentum all the time with a third Millington engine being dispatched very shortly which will be coupled to a third generation sequential gearbox. The conversion involves a complex steel bracket which retains the 6R4 rear diff in it's original position. To complete the conversion a host of unique design features enhance the complete car whilst keeping it's iconic looks and original chassis...
