Introduced in March 2012, Briggs & Stratton Synthetic 4T Racing Oil (GBS2960), formulated by AMSOIL, is available exclusively through AMSOIL and its Dealer network.
Briggs & Stratton is the world’s largest small-engine manufacturer, and karting is the fastest-growing motorsport in the U.S. Tens of thousands of racers rely on Briggs & Stratton engines at the track every weekend. While using competing oils in the extreme operating conditions of its racing motors, Briggs & Stratton experienced myriad failures and issues, including accelerated wear, foul odor, oil vaporization and very short change intervals. Looking to resolve the problems, Briggs & Stratton chose AMSOIL to formulate Synthetic 4T Racing Oil. AMSOIL entered the partnership enthusiastically, formulating an oil that provides outstanding protection and performance in extreme operating conditions. Providing an oil exclusively for Briggs & Stratton’s highest-performing racing engines strengthens the AMSOIL reputation for quality and increases brand recognition
Premium Oil for Severe Racing Applications
Synthetic 4T Racing Oil is formulated specifically to handle the severity of Briggs & Stratton modified competition engines used in kart, junior drag, quarter midget and other racing applications and is recommended for any four-stroke air-cooled competition engine, whether single- or multi-cylinder, splash- or pressure-lubricated.
Combining the protection qualities of a heavy oil with the performance benefits of a light oil, Synthetic 4T Racing Oil helps racers elicit the most horsepower and longest life from their engines. It provides outstanding protection in both stock karts and limited-mod kart applications running over 10,000 rpm, with no sacrifice in horsepower. Racers using competing oils need both a light and a medium oil to achieve a similar combination of protection and horsepower. Synthetic 4T Racing Oil was dyno-tested using the Briggs & Stratton Animal engine, and proven to provide outstanding performance in the most-extreme conditions possible. It effectively resists the elevated heat common to high performance racing engines, and it protects against the formation of corrosion between races and during longer storage periods.
“We are really excited about this relationship with AMSOIL,” said Director of Briggs & Stratton Racing David Klaus. “After a year in development and our first race season under our belt, racers are seeing the benefits of an oil engineered specifically for the environment in which it operates.”
Briggs & Stratton Synthetic 4T Racing Oil is not available in Canada at this time.
