I use 0W-40 lubri-moly(fully synthetic) oil in all of my family cars & trucks including the race car.
In my old 280E that I auto-crossed 6 years ago I used Mobil 1 15w-50.
On the race car (16V) I use Red-line MTL in the trans & Redline Heavy shockproof 85W-140 in the rear diff.
I also use ATE type 200 brake fluid OR ATE blue. I switch every year between the 2 as they are the same except the color.
I also use MB GERMAN factory Blue antifreeze with redline water-wetter.
Change oil & brake fluid every race! Other fluids every year.
