Nasty stuff.
i love lucas, i use it all the time. those test arent all that applicable. our engines along with the vast majority of engines do not have gear to gear anywhere. chains and belts are about it. and the rpm range is very different too. he has got to be pushing those electric motors well over 25,000 rpms.

If the standards used for the test are equivalent to the poor photography, I don't think I would put much stock in the results.
flash glare, anyone?

I can personally testify that the Lucas transmission stop slip additive works exactly as advertised. And I know several people that have also used it with the same positive results.
There is no such thing as a "rebuild in a bottle" but I have never heard Lucas products advertised as such.
They make good stuff.

i would believe the test more if he had added it to the oil on the left and the same thing happened. i think that if it trapped air in the oil like he claims this would already be discovered and mainstream. i think people would notice if their oil was foamed up or had air trapped in it when they changed their oil. i believe the product to bo honest and reliable.
