yes. in one massive plume of fried-chicken smoke. think desert storm oil wells, but raining crispy-strips.

if you have only filtered the KFC oil twice, take it out and filter it another two more times. that way if you've done 5,000 miles double filtered then all you need to do is 5,000 miles quadruple filtered to have an average of triple over the 10,000 mile period.

tbh i can't even remember what fluid's in mine at the moment. what i do know is that the stuff needed for the cocktail isn't available in australia.

There's zero evidence this actually does anything except prolong a problem, besides conjecture and the feels.

3 local cars ran this cocktail, withing 8 months their trans went. Mine after 4 months.

Just run ExtraS.

I read through many pages of this thread and then came across this.. So I just wanted to be sure. My trans actually just went but I came across a decent one with less than 20k on an RA gearset. And Yes I know it's not much stronger, if at all, than my stock gearset, but I like the ratios, and it was cheaper than getting mine rebuilt.

Only an idiot would believe that fluid poured into their transmission would fix mechanical problems

NO WHERE DID I SAY I PUT IT IN A TRANS THAT HAD ISSUES, there was not a single issue with my trans. No grinds, no broken nothing.

The car had 31k at the time, I replaced the fluid according to his V3 cocktail. The V3 crap that came out was thick as ****, smelled like it had been through the pits of mordor and was just horrid.

Scotty, why are you so defensive. You don't have a single shred of evidence that this is a reasonable alternative. If the cocktail is so good, why are you on the 4th iteration? What is the viscosity difference between this and ExtraS? What is the effective weight of this cocktail after it's mixed? There's zero back studies, not a piece of actual data, or evidence. This is all what some guy on a forum posts, and because he's been here a long time everyone automatically believes him, even when he continues to treat members like crap. Your thousands and thousands of people as you say don't have a shred of proof either. Every time I've seen Blackstone comparisons of your fluid vs ExtraS it comes out with ExtraS being better for your trans.

Whatever guys, believe what you want. There are threads on here with actual proof of what should and shouldn't be in your trans. Do some real research instead of believing what some ignorant backwoods prick tells you.
