What grade of oil have you found good for using a R33 GTR for the road? The tuners usually recommend 5/50 or 10/60 but that might be too thick for short trips and slow commutes. Any ideas?

Fuchs titan pro r 15w50 but you can use a 10w50 too if you want something a little thinner on cold start. Avoid the 10w60 that's a little too thick IMO for our climate unless your living somewhere hot and your temps get high.

I use Redline 10w40, I have enough trouble getting my car up to temp without going any heavier

It really depends on what kind of use the car will get, and how hot the oil will get.

For normal road use, oil temps up to 90c-95c, a 5w40 or 10w40 should be about right I think.

10w50 nano drive for me.
+1 for definitely avoid 10w60 far too heavy and never gets up to temps on the road.

Thanks

Good consensus there. I have to change again because of a bit of contamination, wanted to get it right.
