 Is that the ATE superblue? I use that in my trackday e30 and works great for me, not expensive either and my local GSF stock it which is handy :)

Another RBF600 user here, also Fuchs Titan Pro-S 5w40 for engine oil.

 

Probably worth mentioning the oft overlooked MTF seeing as it faces more of a pounding than engine oil during hard use. I'd change it at every engine oil interval/track day using Fuchs Titan Sintofluid 75/80 on the BE3, a little more expensive but I've found it more resiliant than Totals BV offering and it retains the same aluminium synchro protection providing a nice smooth shift.

I'm going to try some Willwood EXP 600, as we're currently boiling the fluid.

I've recently switched to Motul Competition 15w50 on my freshly rebuilt Mi16 and I have rock solid 6 bars of pressure at all times, never went under 2 at idle. I will need to install a thermostat on the oil cooler since it's running a bit cold.

 

Pricey stuff but seems the business so far after a first 1000 km valve train and crank bearing inspection.

Just bringing this up for any new ideas on engine oil.

Doing a track day next weekend and going to put in fresh oil - what's out there for an 8v, or are the above still relevant..?

Everyone has their favourite, no idea why. Mine is Penrite Racing 15W-50. I wait until it's on special and buy up big.

Climate is a big factor, what is the Peugeot recommended grade in Australia?

10w-40, but I still race with thicker oil.
