Default Opinions on Redline products

Gonna change my tranmission and differential fluids soon and was wondering what VIC's opinion is on Redline 75w90 and Redline High Temp ATF. I don't need anything fancy, just an intermediate product that does the job. Any other products you guys would recommend for a better "bang for the buck"?

Thanks,
Sam

^ nar, Redline is good but not good on Tranny as I heard.... PM 5 Zigen, he has a really, really, really bad experience on Redline High Temp ATF ....simply tranny broke...

Redline Engine Oil is not bad at all dough

I'm using Scottys coctail and I like it so far . I don't know if you have any shifting issues beacuse this stuff will mask the synchro problem . I also used that redline 75w90 it did not work . There is this subaru Extra S oil suppose to work awesome but they come in 20 litre drums from the dealer . Part number : K0323F0091
Factory oil is probably not a bad idea .
I will buy 4 litres if you go with this .

A good synthetic gear oil from one of the standard suppliers (Pennzoil, Quakerstate, etc.) will treat you just fine. OEM is also not a bad idea

I tried royal purple gear oil and had shifting issues so i decided to try the extra s. that stuff works wonders! I ordered the 20 litre drum and split it with a few people here a while ago.

I used redline 75w90 and switched it out the next week.

low speed turns = unpleasant noises from the diff.

i switched back to subaru oem stuff and it's fine again.
