Modern lubricating engine oils have been continually redesigned for maximum performance in modern engines (i.e. modern cars). The Pantera and the flat tappet engines used in them were made in the 1970's. Today's modern oils do not have sufficient ZDDP in them to prevent premature wear. Some folks have considered this myth, but there is plenty of evidence on the Internet today to indicate there is a real problem. Even oil manufacturers are beginning to admit to the problem, which only affects flat tappet engines older than the 1990's.

To guard against this wear, recommendations are to run a quality oil high in ZDDP or zinc phosphates. Adding ZDDPlus to your oil change is another good way to make sure you have enough ZDDP in your lubricating system to help prevent prematue wear of engine components. Dennis "Mad Dog" Antenucci has used ZDDPlus in his Stroker 351C built by Russ Fulps. After several ORR events, Russ tore down the engine for an inspection and reported minimal perceptible wear, even after Mad Dog ran the engine in excess of 150 MPH in many events.

A big Team Pantera Racing Seal of Approval goes to this product, to help guard against wear, help the engine last longer and provide more miles of smiles.

And do more research on your own. We're sure you'll want to be adding ZDDP to your next oil change.
