Thumbs up Motul takes it......

....I'm convinced!
After so much search and discussions and posts and disputes and.....
Anyway, I changed the Tranny fluid on MY00RS to Motul 300...all I can say is "Damn".
The smoothness in the synchros on shifting is amazing, both when it's cold and hot. The only notchy feeling it has is the stock shifter which soon will change...(when I get a job )
I'm not promoting anything here, and yes, I bought it from Nativo. This Motul is some serious stuff. Yes, it's a bit pricey...although Nativo is selling them pretty cheap compared to other sales vendors. But Motul stands up to what they say...
Just to let you guys know....no grinding, no scraping, no nothing...cold or hot!!!
Thanks Nativo!
It's definitely worth the price!!!
Good job!!!
Won't need to worry about this for a long while!
Peace!

It's easy....
Just loosen the drain bolt down at the gear and fill through the top (where the fluid stick is).
I have a Manual tranny so there's no filter. Although with an Auto, not much different just you have to change the filter as well.

Nativo sells them for $48 (4 quarts and shipping is included).

Awesome stuff...trust me on this.
People here have experimented with Redline and are not "completely" satisfied. Now they are trying mixtures...oh well!!!
Motul is good with me....

Thumbs up

Dennis,
Don't know about the meet yet...
But about the friction modifier, you might want to chk with Nativo, he can tell you.
Let me tell you, the difference is very noticeable.
In the meantime, you can chk www.motul.com.
There have also been previous discussions on the Redline vs. Motul dilema (sp?).
Hope this helps!

Elmer

Question

Sounds good, but has anyone already driven with the 300 in the summer months? I live in SoCal & have to worry about the horrible sunny half-year summers we have

When the time comes (summer) I'll come back to give you info on that...
In the meantime, I put alot of miles on my car a day....so even if it's cold outside...the tranny is summer like inside!
But, if you think summer observation will convince you...ask Nativo or anyone from Puerto Rico or Florida...that should help!!!

The price isn't that bad. A performance shop in Central NJ sells Redline for $10 a quart (not delivered). Do you know if Motul has friction modifiers? Keep us posted when it gets hot this summer. Are you going to the Cape May Meet?

I've been using the Motul edge for a long long time Totally well worth the money!
Out of all the brands I've tried, the top five in order so far are :
*note: all of following are based on synthetic lubricants*

1)Motul
2)Agip
3)Mobil 1
4)Redline
5)Castrol
