It will take me a few more days to get all of the ingredients together, but I will be providing the Uncle Scotty's cocktail as a kit! This is for people who can't source the products locally, or just don't want to. It will include all 5 bottles that you need to bring your transmission back to life! The kit will include:

2 bottles Castrol Hypoy C 80-90W
1 bottle Redline Lightweight Shockproof
1 bottle Pennzoil Syncromesh
1 bottle Redline 75-90W NS for the diff.
Instructions

If you have an interest in this, PM me so that I can gauge how many kits I might need. PM'ing me now does not obligate you to anything, but I would rather only hear from people that are serious.

I have personally tried Redline in every formula, Royal Purple, Lucas, Amsoil, Mobil 1, Valvoline, and more. NONE of them are anywhere in the same class as Uncle Scotty's cocktail. Not even close! As soon as I put this into my car, I knew I had to make sure that other people realize how absolutely amazing it is.

two quick q's -

Is ther eonly one type of Pennzoil Synchromesh? I've heard rumors of a friction-modified version?

Does Redline lightweight shockproof make sense for the rear diff?

UPDATE - One of my suppliers dropped the ball. Because of this, I won't be ready to ship the cocktail until next Monday. I apologize for the delay, but the distributor sold my stuff to someone else. The next order won't be in until next Monday. As soon as I get my hands on the missing ingredient, I will post up here. Please be patient - we're almost there!

I just wanted to add my take.... I just put the cocktail in my '01 RS 5MT. I bought the car used with 80k miles and didn't know if the fluid had ever been changed so I figured I might as well. I put the cocktail in and have been driving it for ~2k miles and I have to say, I'm not impressed. There's nothing wrong with how anything feels, but it doesn't feel any better than anything else I've put in a subie transmission. My WRX has Royal Purple in the gear box and it's not any better or worse than this. The only thing that might be different would be cold weather feel, but I'll have to wait a while to test that theory...

I guess what I would ask is - was there anything wrong with the operation of your transmission before changing the fluid? If not, you may not notice a profound difference like most of us have.

The vast majority of the people that have tried the cocktail did so due to problems that nothing else would cure, barring a complete overhaul. The cocktail isn't magic, and it certainly won't fix anything mechanical, but it might extend the time before we have to shell out big bucks for a rebuild. It will also let us enjoy our cars a whole lot more in the meantime. The shifting is much smoother and the grinding goes away - but only if you had a problem to begin with.

One thing that I read was that people werew having an easier time getting into first gear, as well as smoothing out the 1-2 shift. I haven't noticed any increase in either of those areas... My WRX trans feels better than my RS trans and I guess I was hoping that the cocktail would help my RS feel generally smoother... That hasn't been the case

I haven't noticed it to be any easier getting into first at all, maybe worse? But the car does feel a lot smoother I think.

I'm verry impressed with the results and positive feedback of the cocktail !
I're read this thread from top to bottom and reverse

I would like to test by myself, so I searched for the differents parts of the recipee !

My car has 100.000km and I always went easy with the box.

Here, in France, I could only locate 1 dealer for the Redline Lightweight Shockproof.
I searched at the local dealers, under the differents brands : Texaco, Quaker, GM... nada

On Amazon and shop.com, I found Pennzoil at Midway Auto Supply but they don't shipp foreign countries.

Directly at Midway : I could find Pennzoil and Castrol.
Half a good news : they can ship Castrol, but fore some reason, not Pennzoil.
"*This item is not eligible for expedited shipping. "

So whats the best choice ?

Running 100% Redline ?
half Redline, half Castrol ?

Could I find something less exotic in the old contient to substitute to any Synchromesh ?

Thanks for your input.

Chris.

OK. I've been following this cocktail talk for the last 2 years now. My 03 WRX has 10,700 miles on it right now. I had drained the stock gear oil at 1,000 miles and refilled with Redline MT-90. I've been running Redline products in 2 Supra's since 1991 and have always been pleased with the results. Within 100 miles after the refill with MT-90 I felt that the Transmission was indeed smoother and shifted more to my liking, but I still felt that more could be had. I have all of the Group N mounts, Cobb shifter bushing and an STI short shifter also. I am very easy with my transmission and by double clutching I could drop into 1st gear at 15 to 20 mph at will. However, this exercise was never as smooth as I would have liked as I always had to sort of wait while applying pressure to the shifter until the synchro's were ready. (Not at all like my Supra.) Now the point. Last weekend I dumped the old MT-90 and refilled with the following. 1qt. Synchromesh, 1qt. Redline LW Shockproof and 1.8 of Redline MT-90. The first 25 miles or so showed no change other than some shifts felt smoother than others, or more precisley put there was inconsistency in the feel. At 50 miles I really felt that everything was starting to become really smooth. I'm at 70 miles today and without question my transmission shifts noticably smoother. Apparently the different viscosities of the 3 types had to thoroughly mix together. I did a double clutch downshift into 1st at 20 mph this morning driving to work and was startled. When I began to apply pressure to the shifter to move it into 1st, it just went! No stall, no resistance, just a huge smile on my face. There is a difference. I believe that the Synchromesh/Redline LW Shockproof combination is the magic bullet. Thanks Scotty for sharing this. Now I have to try it in my MKIII Supra!

Cool It's working!!!!

Uncle Scotty's cocktail simply rocks. I changed trans fluid from the Redline to the cocktail about 3.000 miles ago and the diff is noticeable. Shifting the car is effortless, there's no more grinding and the down shifts are almost a natural. After driving her for 48,000 miles, she's the most enjoyable since the cocktail was poured. DO IT!!!

For those of you who haven't done this to your trans, please don't wait, it'll save your transmissions in the long run and allow you to enjoy shifting the beast now.

Best mod bar none.

OK, here's a question I havent seen: Has anyone sent their Scotty's cocktail to Blackstone (or similar) for eval after gearoil change?

I'm about to change fluids next week in my 19000 miles old 2005, most happy campers here seems to be the older WRX's (pre '04) but can I assume it will help my low mileage car too? Had 2 smooth shifting Honda's before so i got spoiled w/ good shifting, actually one of 2 reasons I bought an RSX-S instead of WRX was the nice transmission (the other being lack of fender flares). Have no "problems" besides doesnt shift smoothly into 2nd, never had, and occasionally hard to get into reverse.

Update - I am supposed to receive the last ingredient for the cocktail kit on Monday afternoon. I had so many problems with the local distributor that I went right to the regional one in Atlanta. So, unless we get a sudden hurricane, I should be shipping on Tuesday! I will PM those who have already contacted me. Anyone else who is interested in getting all of the cocktail ingredients together in one box, PM me now.

Blackstone does lab analysis of your oil, google it. I've done it on my motor oil, first test said I had slightly elevated silicone, I checked my airbx and sure enough the flaps on the lid wasnt inserted correctly. They test trans oils too. Great peace of mind for $20.

Always in my desperate quest of parts....

I have sourced the Redline Lightweight Shockproof in 1 dealer in France and already ordered 4 quarts.

But still impossible to have Pennzoil Synchromesh & Motul Hypoy shipped overseas, I discovered the NEW AMSOIL MTF - Synthetic Synchromesh Manual Transmission Fluid - which seem to have almost the same specs, and is compliant for the same applications :
GM#12345349, GM#12345577, Chrysler#4874464

http://www.syntheticoilplus.com/mtfData.pdf

Now I'll try to find if it can be shipped overseas

Does anyone have a clue to another oil/brand to replace the Hypoy C ?

Because my Rex deserves Scotty's cocktail...

Thanks.

For those still looking, I found the Castrol Hypoy C at Pep Boys, the Penn Syncromesh at Parts Plus and ordered the Redline products from Summit. Also when I visited Advance Auto the guy there told me he could order all of them for me if I gave him the part #'s, so you could try that...happy hunting

I did by accident, I don't seem to have any problems with it. I have the worst gear box to and I'm completely satisfied.

Scotty will proly beat me up for all this but I didn't follow his instructions to a T.. I to had problems finding the hypoyC so I just opted for a regular 80-90 if you have connections to a redline distributor try out their new MT90-NS. Notice the NS, they say they created it specifically for a wrx tranny but who knows. I think major ingrediants for this lube are the syncromesh and some of the redline stuff. GOOD LUCK
