Tech Article - What’s In It? Driven Racing Oil FR50 Synthetic 5W-50 Performance Motor Oil

Ford Coyote engines are some of the most unique and stout power plants available today. However, these engines also require an oil that is formulated specifically for the blue oval’s one-of-a-kind Coyote design. Driven’s FR50 Synthetic 5W-50 Performance Motor Oil is a competition-proven formulation that provides the required viscosity for these engines and variable valve timing systems. At the same time, the oil delivers the wear protection needed for upgrades like performance cams. FR50 also utilizes a low volatility formula that guards against oil vaporization and foaming. Eliminating this problem reduces oil consumption and prevents inconsistent cam phaser performance.

The aforementioned low volatility formula in FR50 is a full synthetic that uses Group IV+ base oils. This means they contain mPAO, the most innovative synthetic base available. These oils have a broad temperature range and are great for use in extreme cold conditions and high heat applications. The mPAO base oils also deliver a high viscosity index, excellent air release properties and incredible shear stability. In addition, FR50 uses shear stable polymers that complement the mPAO base oils to deliver the most shear stable 5W-50 grade oil on the market. FR50 is ideal for crate up to supercharged Ford Coyote engines.

What’s In FR50 Synthetic 5W-50 Performance Motor Oil?

Ingredient

Function

mPAO Base Oils Provide fluid film to lubricate and cool the   engine components; deliver a higher viscosity index, better air release and   incredible shear stability
Shear Stable Polymers Complement mPAO base oils to deliver the most   shear stable 5W-50 grade oil on the market
Anti-Wear Additives Protects internal engine components from   adhesive wear due to metal-on-metal contact
Dispersants Suspends contaminants and combustion   by-products in the oil to allow them to be carried to the oil filter; prevents   sludge formation
Antioxidants Prevents the chemical breakdown of the oil
Friction Modifier Reduces friction between rubbing and sliding   parts
Corrosion Inhibitor Prevents rust and corrosion due to moisture   and acids that invade the engine from the fuel, combustion and atmosphere
Seal-Swell Agent Conditions the seal materials to prevent   leaks
Viscosity Index Improver Improves the viscosity characteristics of the   motor oil
Pour Point Depressant Allows the oil to flow and pump in cold   weather to reduce wear at start-up
Foam Inhibitor Reduces the tendency of the oil to foam
