from memory it was "do not use castrol syntrax 75/90"
See that's good info to have there!!! Can have alot of people and their zeds pain.

STAY AWAY FROM CASTROL SYNTRAX FOR ZED GEAR BOXES.

we must have a way to sticky this valuable info?

Has anyone used the Lucas Stabalizer? We use it in the race car and it's some really good stuff. You can use it in the gear box, engine and diff's. Check it out Lucas Stabalizer.

I just switched to royal purples 10W40 and it made a big difference. Engine now feels alot smoother and seems a little more willing to rev. Def, worth the money IMO.

Yep! 10-40w

I've got Royal Purple 5-30w atm, but the next change will be to 10-40w.

Indy from IS Motor Racing told me they'd always use either a 5W-40 or 10W-40 grade... he said it doesn't really matter if it's a 5W or 10W but it's always "40".. i didn't ask him why though.. maybe it's a thicker oil so doesn't burn as fast?

oh btw congrats on the purchase be sure to post some pics...

Just changed my transmission oil to Redline MT-90, the improvement is huge.
I still have to try Royal Purple in the engine.

100% Synthetic Mobil 1 0W40.

If it's good enough for Porsche 997's on the Autobahn, then I guess I can live with it as well.......
