just putting some oil in my LSD 3:45 this mornin... and im goin with just some castrol LSd oil.... alot cheaper than redline... and apparently just as good.... but if u want purely the best then just spend the dollars on the redline oil. its ment to have better cooling properties and so on...

Some expensive stuff... most of their gear oils $100+ for 3.8L (US Gallon)... or *cough* $1500 for 60L drum!
