Changing gearbox and diff oil over the weekend, thinking of using some Redline lightweight shockproof in the 'box and heavyweight in the diff

Anyone have any thoughts weather this is a good thing or not, or any recommendations?

There is a pretty long thread about the virtues of Redline and the cases for and against floating around the forum somewhere. Could be worth a search?

It lasts longer than 5000km's have a look at the techinical data on the redlinde site they reckon that it was last up to 4 times the regular change interval. e.g on a normal car the service book states 60,000km change redline reckon it could last up to 240,000km's. maybe engine oil yes but not gear oil.

from personal experience. i think alot of people are feeling the 'placebo' effect of this oil. imho it is for race use only. i had to ditch it after about 4000km, it had turned to water and the box was grinding really really bad. i use a castrol fully synthetic now and its excellent.

interesting, as the place where I bought it says that they have used it in many cars, and have no problems at all. Everyone who I have spoken to locally have nothing but praise for the stuff

I guess there is only one way for me to find out if it will work for me

I will be sure to post the results up anyway

I have used the Redline Product (Lightweight shockproof) for both trans and diff. And would recommend it. My gearbox used to crunch 5th over 100 and wasn't smooth in changes, now 5th doesn't crunch no matter what speed and shifting could not be any smoother. I have had the stuff in my car for just under 5000. Still performing like the day I put it in.
