TRD & MOBIL 1 LESSONS LEARNED RACING

You can't win if you don't finish. Racing pushes every aspect of a vehicle to the limit. The faster a vehicle goes, the higher the engine revs, and the faster the axles rotate; the heat from fiction can break down oil and lubricants to the point of failure. That's why ExxonMobil and TRD work hand-in-hand to test and prove product performance under these extreme conditions.

This helps develop Mobil 1 lubricants that lead to tangible on-track success, including fuel mileage, engine-efficiency and reliability. In fact, Mobil 1-branded engine oil, chassis lubricants, and gear oil helped Toyota take home multiple championships around the world, including the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship with Kyle Busch and the 2017 NASCAR Monster Energy Cup championship with Martin Truex Jr. behind the wheel.

BACK TO BASICS CREATING OIL LIKE NO OTHERS

While all oils may look alike, performance is vastly different. Mobil 1 Racing oils are specifically formulated for on-track use to provide drivers with maximum power output while not sacrificing engine protection in driving conditions that are far from normal. These racing oils all start with low-viscosity synthetic base oils. To that, high levels of anti-wear components, like ZDDP containing zinc and phosphorous, are added to help maximize power output without sacrificing engine protection.

Mobil 1 Racing oil is available to all racers, even you. Mobil 1 also has a Street and Track line of race-proven products that are used by many of the TRD race teams who have won everything from the 24 Hours of Le Mans to the Friday night main event at your local track.

MOBIL 1 CONFIDENTIALITY ENGINEERED

Mobil 1 Racing oils feature a confidential formulation that maximizes performance and protection, while reducing friction inside racing engines. For over 40 years, ExxonMobil has enlisted the top chemists and scientists from around the world to continually improve and develop oils that maximize every molecule of oil while improving engine efficiency and reliability by reducing wear on engine parts. When you're racing to the checkered flag, every hundredth of a second counts.

Another advantage is ExxonMobil has dedicated engineers that work directly with the TRD Team. ExxonMobil Engineers are constantly engaged with TRD Teams, working hand-in-hand throughout the entire oil development and qualification process, to produce engine oils that maximize performance and protection for TRD engines. In fact, ExxonMobil engine oils are the only engine oils, approved by TRD, for TRD's MENCS engine program.

TRD OIL FILTERS AND MOBIL 1
THE PERFECT PARTNERSHIP

Before Mobil 1 engine oils were used in any Toyota Camry or Tundra, the technology was providing protection and performance in race cars. So, when it comes to vital protection and longevity of your Toyota, use Mobil 1 oil and TRD High-Performance Oil Filters together to help prevent premature engine wear.

The TRD Oil Filter is designed to take the junk out of your oil giving you a cleaner, smoother running engine. It uses a state of the art design and a perforated steel inner core to help prevent element collapse.

Additional benefits:

  • TRD Oil Filters keep your oil pure as long as possible and help enhance the life of your engine by filtering impurities through a 100% synthetic fiber filtration medium.
  • Zinc-plated steel end caps help increase the structural integrity of the TRD Oil Filter.
  • Red silicone gaskets help provide excellent seal characteristics at high temperatures.
