Question Redline Oils need to do fluid change asap

This is what I want to use:

Redline superlight shockproof in the tranny case

Redline 75w90 gear oil in the LSD

MY00 GC8

Sounds like the best fluid choice for change?

What are your thoughts guys.

Cheers

Will

I used Redline and it was ok. I switched to Motul and what a difference. Maybe it is more psychological, but it feels so much better. Changin gears is more fun than I remembered.

But then again, Redline is cheaper than Motul.

Not that I've used anything else, but its done the job for me. Pricey, but I prefer to put the best I can afford into my car.

So you guys prefer Motul then?

What kind of each do I want? I have no problem spending more cash for a better product.

Also, do you guys use Motul as your engine oil?
If so, why did you choose that over Royal Purple?
Royal Purple makes a claim that their oil will add an additional 5% HP at the engine of course, but still.

And if you use Motul engine oil, what kind do you use of that?

Cheers

which motul did you use? Did you use Motul for your LSD as well? How much? Where'd you purchase it?

I used Gear 300 for the tranny and Motul PA for the rear.


Motul PA
