SEVERE GEAR® SAE 250

Product code : SRTQT-EA

Premium-grade, extreme-pressure gear lube engineered specifically for high-load demands.
Shear stable in extreme temperatures.
Provides cushion between metal surfaces that absorbs impact to prevent pitting, scoring and wear.
Excellent for severe racing applications subject to shock loading, steep angles, high pinions, G-forces and lubricant sling-off.

SEVERE GEAR® SAE 250



Use in API GL-5, hypoid gear applications that require higher-viscosity oil, including off-road race trucks, rock racers and crawlers, competition tractors, funny cars, dragsters and heavy equipment. Where limited-slip performance is required, use AMSOIL Slip Lock® limited-slip additive.

See the product data sheet for details.

PROTECTS AGAINST WEAR

  • Extra-heavy treatment of additives and shear-stable, heavy synthetic base oils promote increased film strength for maximum wear protection.
  • Cushions metal surfaces and absorbs impact of moving parts.
  • Proprietary extreme-pressure additives form an iron-sulfide barrier on gear surfaces for the ultimate line of defense against wear, pitting and scoring.

PROVIDES FAST PROTECTION

  • Does not contain waxes that solidify in the cold inherent to conventional oils, meaning it provides excellent fluidity despite its high viscosity to quickly reach gears and bearings at startup.
  • Superior fluidity reduces viscous drag and energy loss, helping drivers put maximum power to the ground.

CLINGS TENACIOUSLY TO PARTS

  • Specifically engineered for high-horsepower, high-torque conditions where centrifugal gear lube sling-off is encountered.
  • Tenacious formulation clings to gears and bearings for maximum protection during shock loading, high G-forces and when ring and pinion gears are run at steep angles.
  • Provides excellent reliability and helps extend gear life.

    Good Stuff
    By  Paul,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Arkansas  on  April 07, 2022
    I've used Amsoil Severe Gear in race cars for a long time and have never had a failure due to lubrication (and believe that this product has actually made differentials last longer than standard lubes would have). So, when the differential in my Kia Sorento began humming a tune I figured that Severe Gear might help make the costly repair a little further off in the future. It's been a couple of months now and the noise had dramatically diminished. I'm confident that my differential's life has been extended...maybe even saved.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Best oil for off road racing!
    By  TMR Customs Inc.,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Newmarket Ontario Canada  on  October 23, 2020
    We switched to this oil at the recommendation of other pro off road racers. We've got confidence it'll extend the life of our ring and pinions under racing conditions!
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Works great in my application.
    By  Bob K.,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Pa.  on  August 29, 2016
    I am using this in my 79 Corvette differential. This is a Drag Race Car and I accelerate very quickly from the line. I am noticing no noise or excessive wear so far. Would highly recommend this product.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
