Just got my cocktail order from Grimmspeed. They shipped the new Castrol "Axle Limited Slip 80W-90. " Apparently they no longer have the hypoyC.

Should I go for this combo, or search out the HypoyC?

I will do the lightweight shockproof because it gets -20 to -30 here. Should I use it in the ratios specified in the V1, or can I use the V2 ratios and just substitute the lightweight for the heavyweight?

Thanks!

*edit: I wonder if the new Castrol Axle stuff is the same as the HypoyC, just re badged name or a totally different product?

man....i dont have any information on the new castrol product.....and cant tell you one way or another...if you can find the hypoyc...use that until i figure out the new stuff

and use the v2 ratios.....and i would replace it between 15k - 20k miles when using the lightweight shockproof

I have no shifting issues at all and 72k miles on my car.
what do you all think?
sure.....why not.....if ya dont like it...ya wasted about...$40???

and use the v2 ratio.....which uses all the shockproof and hypoyc and tops up with the synchromesh

Most car enthusiast's i talk to agree that a trans flush can do damage- but i've never heard anyone ever damage a trans by draining, then filling it with fresh oil

we've influenced amazon:


and since everyone always asks:

"2qt castrol 80w90 hypoyC
1qt HEAVYWEIGHT SHOCKPROOF
top off with penzoil synchromesh"

I just did my 30k service and used all lightweight shockproof oil all the way around. I've had zero problems and no headaches about mixing and matching products. Just a thought, use the KISS principle

Well, good news! Per a phone call to Castrol, the "new" axle Castrol product is just a new container and new marketing, but exactly the same as the hypoyC.

I get it. You and others have come up with a formula that seems to work well.
It is what I'm keaning toward using.
However, I just wish there was something that nobody reported it
Increasing trans issues and so far I haven't seen one fluid that can say that.

Your new mix with the HD shock proof and the v2 formula seems to have good results.
I hope it doesn't cause any issues is all I'm saying.

Guess i'll repeat myself. Redline lightweight shockproof oil all the way around. No issues, much better than subaru fluid. No mixing, no guessing, KISS (keep it simple stupid)

O and NO offense to Uncle Scotty!!! I'd hate to get on your bad side!!!

the lightweight shockproof 'wears out'

How many miles does this mix work for? I put Motul in my WRX a few weeks ago and very happy with the results. Any thoughts on the benefits of this mix vs. Motul? Thx.

Update: I have been running the cocktail in my STI Type RA trans for three years now while making over 550hp at the crank without issue. Best trans fluid I have used in my GC in over 12years. Hope this helps someone.

Thank you
This is the info I can depend on more than some person that
put the cocktail in and it felt good so they posted up.
3 years is a better test.
My local tuner (IA Performance) also recommended the cocktail to me.
