Liqui must translate to "Less" in German or something

So liqui moly is not good for street? That's the current oil im using now, since the previous owner told me to use it. I just recently did a oil change, Im going to send it to blackstone.

Just got a 2006 ZCP with 156K. Castrol TWS all it's life. Per the previous owner, Blackstone results were fine at 146K. Just put Motul 10w-60. Will change again with Motul at 160K. Then I'll have a Blackstone report with a 5K interval.

LM 10W60 is just fine for street or track. Been using it for years on all my cars.

I remember some time ago hearing in this forum liqui moly lacks molybdenum. I could be completely mistaking my information here but thats what I remember.

Molybdenum doesn't make or break an oil. Not sure why some people need an oil with molybdenum. Some oil manufacturers actually avoid molybdenum because it's a solid.

Don’t get me wrong just because it has less moly doesn’t make it inferior. I’d be more concerned about the oils cold pour and viscosity over temp characteristics. But LM loses in that category to TWS, Ravenol, etc as well.
