I won't use it.....ever.
Reason....mate had an AUI XR8, and I cahnged the diff oil in it, as required, filled it with Castrol SAF-XA.......3 weeks later, diff started making a noise, ( no, he doesn't drive it like he stole it, real granny driver), and after about 2 months of this, I rebuilt his diff, and I put Castrol LSX90 in it.
I run Penrite Limslip 140 in my 3.27:1, 4 pinion 28 slpine LSD.....no probs.

It wasn't noisy at all before it was put in......another thing is, it is so thin..for 85W140... :shock:
I'll never use it.
