Thumbs down Redline 75w-90NS

Just got the car back from the shop, not all that impressed with the way it upshifts or downshifts, no big difference, feels like stock..could've saved 31 bucks on something else and another 8 for the 75w-90 for the lsd, in my opinion, it's not worth it, stick with stock and save some loot.

I take it you have never used any of the Redline line of products before? If you had you would know redline is a great product, especially their tranny fluids. How many miles do you have on the car with the Redline in it? Give it some time. If you have low miles on the car you may not notice much if any improvement since your tranny has minimum wear. I had an 88 Supra with a second gear syncro that was so bad I couldn't down shift from third to second above 20 MPH without grinding. I tried all the other "synthetic" oils on the market and had no luck. That was until I tried Redline. It made an immediate difference, after 50 miles the tranny was smooth as silk. I also had the same problem with a 91 MR2 and got the same results. I fully intend on using redline in both the tranny and the diff, but not until it's necessary to change the oil.

i got 12k on the car, and yes this is my first time using the oil, so what's your point? And now that I have used them, the answer is still NO, in MY OPINION it isn't a great product.

My point is give it some time, let it work into the tranny for a while. If you just drove it home from the shop and made your observation I'd say your comments may be a little premature. Give it some time. With only 12K on the car your tranny is hardly even broke in.

I found that switching to Redline 70/90 ns made an immediate difference. Shifts are much smoother and quicker than before. Perhaps your shop didn't let all the old oil drip out, or didn't really change it?

i was there when they changed the oil. maybe scurry is right about waiting to see a difference, but from what i hear, you should feel a difference right away, i've put on about 100-150 over the weekend, not a damn thing has felt different.

Maybe you are looking for too much? Afterall, it is just lubricant.
I have not changed the gear lube in my WRX yet, but I have tried Redline MT90 on my Miata. Didn't really feel at all different, but I was happy with the fact that I have synthetic lubricant in the gearbox and it should preform better than dino. (in terms of longevity and lubrication)

okay scurry was right, after a hard ass run today on the way to school..i got back into the car, and it does **** a tad smoother, but down shifting into 2nd is still some what choppy, so overall i'm okay with the way it feels now.
