This stuff is phenominal.

Negatives:
-Expensive, but you should only need to put it in your car once.
-The performance of the fluid is consistant with Redline in that it takes the engine warming up (About 5 minutes) before it peaks

Positives:
-Shifting is like butter. Beyond belief.
-Best performing gear oil I have tried yet.

Summary, I have been using Valvoline Gear Oil for the first 2500 miles of my new engine. Shifting has been stiff and hard to get in gear sometimes, as if the syncros were made of concrete. I was hoping it wasn't the tranny. I mean it's been a year since I drove this car, so anything could have happened in that time. Well, I was changing my oil and adding Mobil 0W-30 (also great stuff) and decided to make the change in the gear oil. Wow. Day and night. I cannot believe the difference. I could not be happier. The TRD clutch and B&M shortshifter can now be utilized as I'm not affraid to put them to use anymore.

I haven't used Redline yet, but I'm sure the perfomance is very simular based on reviews I have read on this board. The reason why I chose Royal Purple is it is what we run in our race cars.


Sypnopsis (sp):
Valvoline Gear Oil 75/90- Dogsh!t, worse than Toyota fluid that comes stock
Toyota Gear Oil 75/90- Great for street use
Royal Purple 75/90- Gear Oil of the Gods

Honestly, I don't think you really ever have to. Don't quote me on that, but the life of gear oil is pretty damn good.

I replaced my engine though, so I in turn replaced the fluid. Because of the poor perfomance of the valvoline oil, I then replaced it again.

Some people don't even know they have to change their tranny fluid/gear oil and drive for years and years without touching it. I heard stories of 6-8 year old cars with 100k+ miles still with the original fluid.

I'm using Redline right now, when I put my LSD in, I will switch to Royal Purple.

*cough* Amsoil .... .


Both Amsoil and Redline out do Royal Purple in every test imaginable. Royal Purple is still better than most convential oils... but 'eh to each his own.
Ok Amsoil rep.

The last thing we were talking about was tranny fluid/gear oil and NOT engine oil?

I take all those Amsoil tests with a grain of salt.

i must agree... Royal Purple is awesome... just changed it in the Celi and runs soo much smoother, cooler, and quieter... more power? couldn't tell you... they claim like 2-3hp, but that's below what the butt dyno could tell... used to run amsoil and mobile 1... so far, the purple stuff owns for me...

Redline is as good as Royal Purple. The reason I'm switching is because I'm getting a LSD and the best Redline fluid for the LSD is corrosive to our bronze/copper synchros but Royal Purple are safer.
