Even when you lube it, make sure it is something good, something that will last, and something she likes…<br><br>Don’t lube her with some low quality blend, she doesn’t like it, no one does. Neither does my beloved RB26. So treat your engine like your sexy girlfriend and you wont be disappointed, this is what ‘Car-ma-Sutra’ has taught me.</p><p><b><a href="http://www.zerotohundred.com/features/q8_lubegard/q8_car_top.jpg"><img border="0" src="http://www.zerotohundred.com/features/q8_lubegard/q8_car_top_B.jpg" width="600" height="399"></a></b></p><p>Picking up a good lube ensures every stroke is filled with great pleasure and endless moment of enjoyment. <br><br>What is Q8 Oils?<br><br>If you haven’t heard of Q8 Oils by now, go kill your self. This potent concoction has been the talk of the town, period. Flip through any car magazine or walk into any workshop I’m sure you will bound to see them shouting at you.</p><p><b><a href="http://www.zerotohundred.com/features/q8_lubegard/lubegard_q8.jpg"><img border="0" src="http://www.zerotohundred.com/features/q8_lubegard/lubegard_q8_B.jpg" width="600" height="399"></a></b><br><br>So for those who have slept, Q8 Oils is no fly by night one-nightstand lube. This potent juice has been around longer than most of you might think. Brewed in Rotterdam, Belgium and United Kingdom by the Kuwait Oil Company and bottled in Leeds. They have a wide range of lubes from engine oil to transmission fluids these guys mean business. </p><p>Cosmic Elite Enterprise, is the Malaysian distributor of Q8 Oils and Lubegard. Top of the range Q8oils includes the Q8 Formula F1 Fully Synthetic Engine Oil 10W-50 and Q8 Gear Oil T55. We decided to sample it on our Zerotohundred.com chick magnet. <br><br>We jetted to Quarter Mile Performance Parts the same day and got them to pour in the Lubegard engine flush. Once down, off we go.</p><p><b><a href="http://www.zerotohundred.com/features/q8_lubegard/quarter_mile_sunway_shop.jpg"><img border="0" src="http://www.zerotohundred.com/features/q8_lubegard/quarter_mile_sunway_shop_B.jpg" width="600" height="399"></a></b></p><p>Couple of days past, again, back to Quarter Mile Performance Parts. Time to drain the old lubes. We waited impatiently as the old lubes drains out of the RB26 and the 5-speed manual gearbox. Is like watching a blood transfusion. </p><p>Exit old enter new. We got our Japanese counterpart Yuko Takahashi to pour the potent blend of Q8 Formula F1 Fully Synthetic Engine Oil 10W-50 gently into the thirsty engine opening, with her petite and gentle movement we are certain that every drop goes in. <br><br>As for the Q8 Gear Oil T55, the technicians of Quarter Mile were at hand to do the dirty. It was a little messier and a lot more work. But it was done without any hassle.</p><p><b><a href="http://www.zerotohundred.com/features/q8_lubegard/g8_girl_pour.jpg"><img border="0" src="http://www.zerotohundred.com/features/q8_lubegard/g8_girl_pour_B.jpg" width="600" height="399"></a></b></p><p>The time has come. We listen silently as we wake the sleeping RB26, it roars gently with new fresh lube. Quieter tappets and the slightly lower oil temperature reading were the most obvious. For the RB26 to know its new friend Q8 better, we allow the engine to idle for a couple of minutes before taking it for a pedal happy session. </p><p>Now after more than a month and with mileage getting close to 1500 km, the engine runs like butter and the transmission slides like a sushi knife. No complaints whatsoever, don’t get me wrong fellows. I’m not saying this is the best lube ever made, at least its the best so far for our chick magnet show car. </p><p><b><a href="http://www.zerotohundred.com/features/q8_lubegard/q8_girl_zerotohundred.jpg"><img border="0" src="http://www.zerotohundred.com/features/q8_lubegard/q8_girl_zerotohundred_B.jpg" width="600" height="399"></a></b></p><p>Just like hair conditioners, Engines and transmissions work differently with additives. Lubegard makes a whole lot of engine and transmission preservatives and conditioners. Ranging from cleaners, to friction modifiers. </p><p>Regular lubrication may not be enough, these synthetic chemicals mate with regular lubricants form a formidable force, maximizing the nature of lubrication. <br><br>Q8 Oils and Lubegard are available at Quarter Mile Performance Parts Sdn Bhd, KSP Power Sdn Bhd and all good performance shops in your neighbourhood</p><p><b><a href="http://www.zerotohundred.com/features/q8_lubegard/q8_girl_pour.jpg"><img border="0" src="http://www.zerotohundred.com/features/q8_lubegard/q8_girl_pour_B.jpg" width="600" height="398"></a></b></p><p><b>What’s provided by Cosmic Elite Enterprise:</b><br>Q8 Gear Oil T55 (sponsored by Cosmic Elite Enterprise)<br>Lube Guard Gear Fluid Supplement (sponsored by Cosmic Elite Enterprise)<br>Lube Guard Engine Flush Supplement (sponsored by Cosmic Elite Enterprise)<br>Lube Guard BioTech Engine Protectant (sponsored by Cosmic Elite Enterprise)<br>&nbsp;</p><p>Special Thanks to:<br><b>Quater Mile Performance Parts - </b>Sunway<br>They specialize in fiddling with Japanese performance sports cars and exotic performance parts.</td></tr></table>

If Q8 is as good as you say it is... why are you adding engine additive?

yeap, you'll be surprised after trying it....

after adding the Lubegard with the Q8 Semi Syn 10w40, it resolved my tappet problems, there're many people who used it and has praised the additive.

Izso, why can't you add any additives in a good lubricant?

Well, this is my personal opinion. I have nothing against lubeguard and Q8. I'm just trying to understand why we need it.

Engine oils like Q8 are specially formulated with specific cleaners and lubricant materials to work best at the indicated engine oil weight and temperature. Adding additives basically alters that structure and basically defeats the purpose of the oil's cleaning and lube abilities.. so why bother with good oil in the first place? Use the cheapass one and add lubeguard la like that.

It doesn't defeat the purpose....there're a few types of engine oil additives available commercially, as according to wikipedia.org

-Zinc dialkyldithiophosphate (ZDDP) additives, which typically also contain calcium, are available to consumers for additional protection under extreme-pressure conditions or in heavy duty performance situations. ZDDP and calcium additives are also added to protect motor oil from oxidative breakdown and to prevent the formation of sludge and varnish deposits.

-In the 1980s and 1990s, additives with suspended PTFE particles were available to consumers to increase motor oil's ability to coat and protect metal surfaces. There is controversy as to the actual effectiveness of these products as they can solidify and clog the oil filters.

-Some molybdenum-containing additives to lubricating oils are claimed to reduce friction, bond to metal, or have anti-wear properties.

-Various other extreme-pressure additives and antiwear additives

Yes guys, you all can get Q8 from Eneos as it is one of our dealers.

NeoG,
I'm not too sure about the Q8's prices as they differ from time to time. As for your civic 11 years old, I'd suggest you to try out our Q8 Semi Synthetic Advance 10w40, it is retailling only at about MYR89 if I'm not mistaken. However, it depends on what have you used b4.

Thteh86 - I like Q8 oils. I've personally tried it and am quite pleased with it.

And I know about the different types of engine additives. Irregardless of what type they are, the engine oil itself is supposed to do all the additive is doing. Why add in additional when the oil itself is doing it already? I mean, Mobil spent millions of dollars on developing it's highest end range of oils the Mobil 1 series, if RM20 additives could do better, then why bother with good oils like Q8?

talking about tis lube guard and Q8 oils made me wanna share my xperience with it... i have use it on my civic eg9 b4 tis running on q8 semi syn and synthethic gear oil...the engine i dun feel much diff as my car was well maintain most of the time but d gear oil is just superb... gear shits were as smooth as butter... it enhance my shifting with my close ratio gearbox ...

then i got my 1jz inside my corona..running on castrol semi syn ..then luck was not on my side wher my heater water stopper burst and my water came out causing my engine overheat n burnt my oil inside my engine... after sending for repair, d oil had been top up bcuz dare not change first as we wanna make sure tat d engine is ok... however d moment we start, d engine had very loud tappet sound...as if ther is no oil...

then i drive to D'Tuning....Daniel says my oil need to be change so wif limited budget i just change to d semi syn plus lube guard in as recommended.... after tat i start my car... but tappet sound was ther... i tinking like heck its time to buy a engine kosong and get d components frm d head cuz i tink must be lots of damage frm previous incident... and i just blast my car max on d way to d kedai potong.. only when i release my acc i find out tat my car has no more sound.... nothing... and perfect.. in fact its smoother and i should say i save my wallet... i made a U turn and went back home...frm tat day onwards.... no way i will use other than Q8 and d lube guard

*scratches head*
Lubegard is pure esther extract.It enhances the performance of any lubricant,good or bad.It significantly lowers lubricant temperature and eliminates friction.It has anti oxidation and deters sludge buildup.It has a whole range of engine and transmission products.
