What People Are Saying

We've put together a collection of testimonials from our customers.

From time to time we get emails from customers ranging from how they loved the product they purchased or about the customer service and anytime free consultation on lubricants or getting the most out of a race car or street driver too. One such email arrived the other day.

I recently ordered two bottles of the XL-1 Engine Treatment. I received the items today and wanted to thank Mark as well as everyone at Magellan for the thoughtfulness to include a Spray Lube and a small hand sanitizer. Great business model as I will be ordering more items from you guys in the future as well as recommending you guys to all my friends.
This whole pandemic has been a mental strain but today was so much brighter after opening my order. Thanks again for making my day and I can’t wait to get the engine treatment in my truck.

The Daytona Gear oil is simply the best available product today!  The low viscosity of the oil is scary to a new user at first.  The thought is “I hope this doesn’t burn my rear end and tranny up”.   However, after use, they quickly gain confidence.   We run the gear oil in both Nascar Late Model Stock cars as well as Late Model SuperTruck’s.   The gear oil and additives are so superior that we only change our rear end grease twice during the entire race season and that is just because we feel guilty leaving it in there for the entire year.   In addition, with the current impound rules following qualifying, this is a vital secret to our consistently strong qualifying efforts when the lubricant is at ambient temperatures as opposed to normal thicker viscosity greases. 

I am convinced after 2 years of using the grease with no pitting or gear failures and over 3000 laps of competition that this is simply the best and fastest rear end and gear lubricant on the market.   I just hate that others will find out how good it is!  LOL.

I recently heard about this anti-friction oil additive from a buddy of mine. He went on and on about how great it was freeing up horsepower simply by adding Daytona1 XL-1 to the oil. He said the numbers on the dyno backed it up so I did some research.

Their were many other people who were having the same results and opinions, so I decided heck I'll give it a try! To say I was skeptical would be an understatement, but my doubts would soon be wiped away.

Some of the hard observations seen were lower operating temps, more nights racing before an oil change, more laps on the oil before it turned black. After some 30 race nights, we tore the engine down to take a peek at the internals. It looked new showing very little wear, no blow by and unheard of leak down percentages. This product is absolutely what everyone says it is. By far the best money I've spent racing.

The following is a letter from the city of Daytona Beach regarding our Z-9 Coating.

"I would label CimCoate Z-9 as a breakthrough product"

March 29, 2012

To whom it may concern:

Daytona Beach, is proudly the home of the “World’s Most Famous Beach”. Along with this honor, comes one of the world’s harshest environments due to sun, sand, wind and salt air content. Unfortunately this combination will produce corrosion and deterioration in days on improperly protected surfaces. Prior to contracting with Buck Parker and Cimarron South Inc. for application of its “Proprietary Coating”, CimCoate Z-9, it was common for light poles and other metal fixtures to experience severe corrosion within a short period of installation. It was also common to also experienced discoloration, chalking, and flaking paint, as well as nuts and bolts supporting the fixtures corroding and becoming unmanageable.

Over the past four or so years, the City has applied CimCoate Z-9 to over 100 light poles and fixtures along A1A as well as street light poles, and gates and ornamental fencing along several beach side areas. This application has allowed corrosion to essentially stop and the finish remains in near-new condition. This refurbishing and restoration process continues to save the city money, plus gives us a virtually new look without replacing.

The added benefit that CimCoate Z-9 is also considered as non-toxic, was very important to the City of Daytona Beach as it is our policy to use the most environmental sound and safe products available.

This endorsement comes without personal gain to me or the City of Daytona Beach. Based on my many years in construction and maintenance, I would label CimCoate Z-9 as a breakthrough product. In my opinion, it could help any organization to restore, refurbish, maintain the appearance and/or extend the life of metals, fiberglass or other surfaces.

As the Facilities Construction & Maintenance Manager for the City of Daytona Beach, FL, I strongly recommend (Cim-Coate Z9).

Daytona1 Team Member Justin Wake and his crew are running in the Top Sportsman Class with a naturally asparated 500 cu Chevy big block.  He recently tried our XL-1 Engine Treatment during a dyno-test.

Jason says that he and the crew have tried carbs, headers, head work, cams, header collectors and a few other tricks of the trade to gain horsepower with minumum or no gains.  On the first pull the motor picked up 6 HP!  The motor was cooled and tested again at max RPM's with a gain of 8 HP!  They did a third test and saw 8 HP gain again.  Also, a gain of 10 ft lbs of torque throughout the pull was recorded!  Justin said, " I'm at 1148 HP!  I'm very happy!"  Running 6.70's @ 205MPH.

I'm a weekend warrior crate late model racer.  With the crate engines, every gain in horsepower and torque shows up on the racetrack.  I have always ran the expensive $16.00 / quart motor oil simply because I thought if it costs more it must be better.  Now I run Mobil 1 synthetic with Daytona 1 XL-1. I was amazed at the dyno numbers and the feel on the racetrack.  Bottom Line: “I went from $136 per oil change to a $48 dollar oil change and gained nearly 8 horsepower.”

"I just finished waxing my car, I've been detailing my cars for 65 years. When I was young I used a cleaner then simonize wax. It would take almost two, ten hour days. When I went to school on Monday I couldn't pick up a pencil. Since then I have used every polish/wax ever known to man. This stuff is the best I've ever used! Plus, its user friendly.

The shine is the best I've ever put on my car, and with NO STREAKS! I've always had to rub my butt off to get the streaks out.  

It was so easy, even at my age."

"We added MGL Defrictioator to a tufting machine in a major company. During 3rd shift they had a belt break stopping oil flow. The machine operator hit the override button and kept running the balance of the shift with no oil pressure. No damage occurred…Saved us thousands…An amazing product!!!"

Buck Parker and Daytona 1 keeping me going longer, faster, stronger, my motor has never looked this good after tear downs in all of my years racing.

Before you ask yes they offer semi synthetic as well, I prefer the full.
