Fiction.

Read this. http://www.ftc.gov/os/2001/02/speedwaycmp.pdf

Basically, it is a court case which is suing the makers of ZMax for having a false product which can actually damage your engine over the long run. ZMax itself is little more that a fancy baby oil. I'm serious, read the article. (Section 7 is the quickest info.)

It'* not the same thing ! They claim to have lincyte which in reality they don't cause you can't use it on cars only plane engines ! That stuff actually does work but it'* not for sale and is a great product ! I stole some from an airport when I was in high school and I have a 305 that had 489,000 miles and was still running HARD before I made the SS into a race car !!! It'* used on plane overhauls! Great product just can't get it !!!
I got a allon left for sale ( can't put too much and it'* considered as cheating by the NHRA) I'll let it go for 800.00!

"Each of the three formulas consists of 100% mineral oil with no active chemical additives"

Who cares what it'* supposed to do or where to get it? It'* a farce. Like the IAT enhancer on Ebay, or the TPS enhancer, or the 20 dollar 'performance chips'.

I'm glad this was asked here, and that someone had that link. If you haven't clicked on the link above, do it.

I don't want to see anyone spend their Mod money on a joke. We watch out for each other that way!

You know whats really good for trannys. It'* LUCAS tranny add., I had a 87 Olds with the 3800, not the Series 1, which sucked, but it had a slipping tranny real bad, and it had a leak, but I put 2 bottles of that stuff in and HOLY CRAP, it cleared the slipping, but it still had a leak tho, but a few weeks later the engine blew in that car. Man I'm so glad I got a Bonny now with a Series 2 in it.
