Redline is as good as they say it is.

Today I changed my Tcase and Tranny fluids in an 83 110 with a LT77 and PT LT230. I used Redline's products and actually notice shifting is smoother. It never had a grind but I also notice, at highway speed of 62-65, there's less noise.

Very happy with the results thus far.

I have 3 bottles of RedLine MTL sitting on the shelf waiting to go in my LT77. And some fresh Mobil-1 gear oil for the LT230. Hearing this might give me some motivation to do it this week.

Which T-case fluid did you use, Clay?

Have not used it yet in my 97SW but plan to pull the trigger when it is time to change fluids again. I have a race car shop near the house that carries the full line of Redline products so I no longer have an excuse not to.

Clay, I frequent OG Racing as well, but Amazon Prime is the cheapest around. A few weeks back they were running a huge sale on box of 12 bottles of 12-oz Castrol Dot 4. Probably a 1/3 the cost of elsewhere.

I switched my DD to Redline D4 ATF and the changes are buttery smooth. Far better than the H*nda branded fluids made by Ashland or other companies.

I owned a POE which shifted poorly. I wish id pulled the trigger on Redline back then. Probably would have made a nice difference. Live and Learn.
