Thumbs up Redline 7w-90NS

Wow, I ordered four quarts of this from og racing, and I am still in awe.

When I got in my car this morning, it was about 30¡ÆF, pretty cold. When I went to put my car in reverse it was like warm butter, the shifter was as smooth as it normally is after 20 minutes of warm up. The shifting just got better as I drove along. Second and even first gear are much easier to downshift into. I don't know exaclty how the oil works, but it's made shifting a lot nicer and smoother. Definitely worth the $31.

Fixed . I highly recommend the Redline oils as well, though I used Superlight Shockproof in my tranny .

My experience with 70W-90NS hasn't been %100 positive. While it did greatly reduce the amount of gearbox whine in lower gears, I can't say it has helped my synchro action at all. 1st and reverse seem harder to get into than before- but thats OK, just have to double clutch more often. The gears definately feel somewhat notchier also. Overall it is a good improvement, and makes the car feel like a $35k car rather than a $25k one

Post Works for me!

I have to agree with Corn-Picker. After spending a weekend in the woods -- check-pointing at a TSD Rally -- with the tach hovering between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm in 2nd/3rd gear for hours on end, the shift action of my gearbox with Red Line 75W-90 NS was consistent and smooth throughout.

I am especially happy with the 1st and reverse gear engagement - no more crunching!

BTW, anyone know whether the recommended service interval is any different than with other gear oils?

Thumbs up

I just switched to Redline 75W-90NS and I like it. Shifting is smoother and I have not experienced any crunching. I will definitely be using it on future tranny fluid changes.
