Valvoline VR-1 Oil

What are you thoughts on Valvoline VR-1 oil. Someone told me they like the 20-50 VR-1 racing oil. Is there any difference with this type oil vs regular 20-50 oil?

Re: Valvoline VR-1 Oil

zinc content is one key difference. VR-1 has more than standard oil. They also make the VR-1 in 10w-30.

I may not have the amount of Zinc and Phosphorus that it had in the past. Check out VR1 Looks like a weak oil.
