Racing Applications


The Energy Release Chemists have been busy in the lab...they enhanced the antifriction properties of Energy Relase by 40%. The New Formula offers improved anti-wear & extreme pressure performance. The improved formula is compatible with all engine oil grades, including low viscosity 0w20 Oils. The improved formula has superior thermal stability and resists thickening at low temperatures and prevents breakdown and shearing, which degrades lubricity. The New Energy Release Formula has advanced anti-corrosive and anti-oxidation properties to prevent the buildup of sludge. Energy Release Products Advanced Formula is slightly more transparent in appearance and less viscous.      

Note: Energy Release Antifriction Engine Treatment IS NOT an oil treatmentER is carried by oil to points of friction, heat generation and wear. ER is activated by heat & friction and treats those areas directly.

What Is Energy Release?

Energy Release, commonly known as ER, is the original and first true antifriction metal conditioner. ER works on an entirely different principal than other additives and incorporates a heat activated chemical technology to form an extraordinarily smooth surface and accomplish unparalleled results. ER is not an oil or lubricant but uses oils and lubricants to carry itself to points of heat and friction. ER is a pure undiluted complex chemical formula that contains organic and synthetic compounds. ER mixes readily with petroleum and synthetic lubricants such as oils, greases, ATF / hydraulic fluids and can even be used in air conditioning systems.

How Does Energy Release Work?

ER treats the metal itself rather than the oil. ER contains a Ferrous based Ion that actually becomes a part of the molecular structure of any ferrous (iron) containing material. When activated by heat, the ion in Energy Release is looking for a home and will modify the molecular structure of ferrous metals; ER actually seals the rough pores and smooths the asperities of the metal surface without changing any tolerances. This process dramatically reduces the coefficient of friction and wear between moving metal parts.

Product Information:

  • Energy Release IS NOT an oil treatment. The oil is a carrier for ER in the engine to points of friction, heat generation & wear

  • Energy Release is 100% Pure Concentrate.

  • Energy Release treats your entire vehicle.

  • Energy Release does not contain PTFE, Moly, graphite, lead, zinc, metals or fillers.

  • Energy Release is designed to be carried by existing fluids: motor oil, transmission oil and gear lube.

  • Energy Release can be used in every lubricated system of your vehicle.

  • Energy Release treats metal surfaces in a time-temperature-pressure relationship. The higher the temperature or pressure,
    the shorter the time it takes to condition metal parts.

  • Energy Release has a definite residual effect on treated surfaces without changing tolerances,
    even if the surface is dry after treatment.

  • Energy Release is nonflammable, nontoxic and environmentally friendly.

Energy Release Products Protect and Extend the Life of Your Racing Vehicles

Energy Release Racing Products reduces friction, lower operating temperatures, increase RPM, torque and horsepower and extends component life. These benefits are noticeable and are documented by many world-class racers that have used Energy Release since 1985. Energy Release protects every lubricated component of your race vehicles: crankshaft, camshaft and gears, bearings, connecting rods, cylinder walls, wrist pins, chaincase, suspension shafts, gearboxes, transmission, etc.

Energy Release Racing Applications

Engine / Crankcase: 2 oz. per quart of oil.

Power Steering: (32:1) 1 oz. per quart.

Differentials: Up to 80wt. Oil: (16:1) 2 oz. per quart. Over 80wt. Oil: (8:1) 4 oz. per quart.

Transmissions:Automatic: (64:1) 1/2 oz. per quart. Manual: (16:1) 2 oz. per quart

Note: DO NOT use ER in posi-track or limited slip differentials with metal clutch discs on axle drive gears because they require metal-to-metal friction to function.

Two-Cycle Oil Injection Systems: Do not add ER directly to the oil tank. Mix thoroughly (vigorously) 1/2 oz. of ER per quart of two-cycle motor oil at room temperature, then add to oil tank; ER will stay suspended in the oil.

Pre Mix in Two-Cycle Engines: Add ER to the two-cycle oil first at room temperature. Mix thoroughly (vigorously), then mix in the gas. ER will stay suspended in the oil/gas. Refer to the two-cycle chart for mixing ratios.

Four-Cycle Engines: Add 2 oz. of ER per quart of motor oil (16:1).

Chains: We recommend using Energy Release Gear & Chain Clear Grease. It is a clear grease in an aerosol that sprays on thin to penetrate the pins and links and tacks up in seconds for superior adherence.

Chain Cases: Add 2 oz. of ER to the existing chain case fluid. Make sure no to overfill. The metal filing that normally collect on the dipstick magnet in the chain case will decrease dramatically. For example, with an 8 ounce chain case capacity, use 6 ounces of recommended fluid and 2 ounces of ER.

Gearboxes: Add 2 oz. Of ER per quart of oil up to 80wt. (16:1). Add 4 oz. of ER per quart of oil over 80wt. (8:1).

Bearings: We recommend using Energy Release G-100 Lithium Grease. You may also inject two or three drops of ER through the seal, using a syringe or a sharp needle point greaser to assure a clean hole, then seal with silicone. Bearings will run cooler, smoother and last longer with ER.

Suspension Shafts & Steering: Use Energy Release G-100 Lithium Grease.

Wet Clutches: One of the most frequently asked questions is: “Can ER be used with wet clutches like the clutch in a motorcycle?” Yes. ER teats only ferrous metals, therefore, it does not negatively affect the fiber materials in wet clutches. In fact, many users report better clutch performance with ER.

Questions & Answers

Q. Can I use ER in my brand new engine?

A. Yes. However, we recommend that you break-in your new engine as suggested by the engine builder, then add ER to your oil.

Q. Can I use ER in my old engine?
A. Yes. ER is known for its ability to give new life to many old engines 

Q. How long will it take for me to see results with ER?

A. ER is a heat-activated chemical that works quickly in a racing engine. The engine oil temperature will drop noticeably due to less friction in the motor. The rear-end will run 10-15 degrees cooler. These benefits are noticeable and are documented by many world-class racers that have used ER since 1985.

Q. Is it true that ER can be used in my engine, transmission, differential and even my air conditioner?
A. Yes, this is fact. Most additives can only be used in an engine. ER however, can be used with any lubricant in your race vehicle. This not only makes ER the most universal and practical metal conditioner, but also the least expensive.

Q. Are there other products like ER on the market today?
A. No. ER is a true metal conditioner. Energy Release, LLC owns the formula and manufacturing rights for Energy Release.

Q. Do you have any tips or suggestions for using ER in racing applications?
Yes. Noel Schanilec, owner of Applied Hi-Performance Products, has over 30 years of experience using ER in numerous racing applications. These applications require a detailed explanation; please contact us and we will make arrangements to send this information to you. With over 35 years of experience in the high-performance industry, AHPP is committed to excellence in everything we do. We will be happy to provide product support and answer any technical questions that you may have.

Q. Does using ER an engine increase horsepower?   

Yes. However, we don't promote horsepower gains. We promote: PROTECTION. PERFORMANCE. PROVEN. Horsepower gains are about 1%... an added benefit when using ER.
