Tires are made from oil so no need to add extra, unless of course the pressure is low, than adding oil will help.

Regarding the question about what oil to use, since tires are made from oil, you could chop up the tire and stuff it in the engine. It should break down over time to provide a nice layer of lubrication over the gears.

Probably not. Batteries have a constant output for the most part and adding a different fluid will not increase hp.

I used several different oils in my daytona. The only differences I noticed was a very slight difference in the way it shifted. I finally settled on repsol full syn. It was slightly cheaper than mobil and there was no difference between the two that I could feel.

Nah, Use some Coke or Pepsi the Caffeine will give you the HP gains your looking for, as for oil,

just take some Crisco and half it with Water, should be good.
