Default Brad Penn Oil hard to get?

Can anyone tell me why Brad Penn oil is so hard to get?
It seems to be a good oil, but i am considering changing oils or buying 6 cases at a time! LOL

I have to order it online right now and takes 8 to 10 days to get.

Anyone know a quicker way to get it in Central Arkansas?

Thanks

Read this thread. For my application, I was less than impressed with Brad Penn oil.

I've since been running Mobil 1 V-Twin with fantastic results.

Default oil

the brad penn has a high zinc level and is for race applications only. like some of the others stated its a good for lubrication especailly in flat tappet cams and alcohol motors such as sprint cars.

seems alot of circle track and dirt guys use it.

its what my engine builders swears by and i've been using it in our race motors with good results. synthetics are too much $$$$$ and unless your leaving them in the engine for longer intervals between oil changes your not gaining anything.

if your racing and changing oil all the time why bother. i've also tried torco and there pretty good.

biggus are you sure you did't overheat the oil. the petro based oils will break more no matter what, since this his how oil works but the reg petro oils can't handle high heat(above 300 F) like the synthetics.

i've also tried FINA, its the same as the old Rotella T with the additives still it in. plus its dirt cheap compared to some of the other stuff.

The oil never got real hot, no more than 260 degrees F
