I used their auto tranny stuff in a dying borg warner and it made the problems much worse. If you are using good quality oils then the additives are really not worth it.

I used to use slick 50 and all the after market cool sounding stuff and now I don't use any of it and I believe my vehicles are the better for it.

One caveat: the power steering stop leak stuff from Lucas is my only exception.

I used it in a partially hosed lt230 and it helped.

It's helpful in quieting series gearboxes/transfer cases and overdrives.

Put Redline MTL in. I couldn't believe the difference it made. I really thought it was all just talk, but it truely transformed how my truck shifted.

I agree, I use Redline MTL too. Just curious if the Lucus product would benefit...

I have used the Lucas in the LT, seems a little thick for the R380. Ive also used it in the swivels.

Do not use it in the R380.

It is like maple syrup thick.
