I only have about 300 miles on my Mobile1,the only reason im going to change it is because my oil temp was almost pegged at 300 degrees at my track day last weekend.So two questions,like a stupid ass, i didn't notice til i got home that i got the high mileage(cars over 75,000)oil,is it ok to use or should i take it back? #2 since there is only 300 miles on the filter too,should i change it as well? I always change both,since there isn't any miles on it thats why i was wondering.

As well,i did a rear end oil search and it sent me back here,so question #3 i want to run synthetic in my rear end,i plan on tracking at least 3 times per year,what kind, and viscosity do i want to run?

Just switch to a first class racing oil like I did. Put TORCO in it. Their main office is actually in Rancho Cucamonga so you can go there and they'll get you everything you need; engine, trans and diff plus friction modifier for the diff. Since you're trying to protect a priceless collector's item (YOUR Camaro) get a new filter too; they're not that expensive and it's worth the peace of mind.

Lots of great reads when the snow is falling.
