Redline MT-90 Tranny Fluid and Engine Oil change

I have trouble going into 1st gear recently which prompted me to search around for a better transmission fluid to see how much it will help. The Redline MT-90 75W 90 was decided upon and I poured it in over the weekend. These fluids need to be run in over a period to properly gauge the difference in improvements. Thus far after 2 weeks of usage, the notchy 1st gear engagement is no longer there. I hope this will stay on for good.....

Since the ER34 is already up on a hoist, I changed the engine oil and oil filter at the same time. Not really to save labour cost but rather just to save my time going to the workshop. Been pretty busy of late. :(

According to the marketing talk, the Redline MT-90 are designed to provide excellent protection and improved shiftability for manual transmissions. It allows proper shifting over the entire temperature range which the transmission will experience. The synthetic base oils used have a very high viscosity index which provides relatively constant viscosity as temperature changes.

In summary, it provides excellent protection of gears and synchronizers and its balanced slipperiness provides a perfect coefficient of friction, allowing easier shifting.

The prices are steep but thus far worth it........
