I just bought Redline MT85 for my RD2. I will put it in once I do my tranny swap(3rd gear is gone).

Thanks! for all the input and things to consider before putting it in. I saw the gl5 on the front of the bottle, but the back shows it as being universal with all gl numbers.

If you don't HAVE to change the oil this week, order the Redline. The quote from me when I was running Royal Purple reminded me that I've since run Redline . . .



the Redline is better.

After the Lightweight shockproof I used some Redline MTL. in my Gen Coupe It's thinner and about an 80w.. Shifting was easier but grinding was more apparrent.

My main solution for grinding is to not miss shifts!

The Gen Coupe 6sp manual is crap from the factory for grinding.

My driveshaft oil seals were blown when I bought this tranny. After filling it up like ten times, idgaf any more and have been driving it with the oil level at the bottom of the driveshaft holes for like... 10k miles so far.



I'm changing the seals and looking at what's left of the oil tomorrow. Will post pics of metal filings for a lol.
