How do you like the RL Shockproof gear lube? how long has it lasted before it gets noisy again?
Been running RedLine shockproof im my transmission for about 4000mi now. Observations:
- My tranny was sticky and geting into neutral was very difficult / impossible when tranny hot before I installed the RL lube. It helped a lot. There was still some residual stickiness when getting into neutral. Probably the fault of the box not the lube.
- At this time, my tranny sounds like a major rattle box when in neutral with clutch out. Its louder than the tappets. I also lose about 100 RPM at idle when the clutch is out (with recently installed BeetleTech Map. Note: CO% is not optimized). Dunno, maybe a mainshaft bearing going bad??
- RL does not help with the huge THUNK when shifting into first gear. But engagement of other gears seem to benefit, especially when lube is new.
Anyway, Is it slicker than the factory gearlube? Unqualified yes. Good enough to try if you have problem.
Does it reduce noise?? Not really.
Does it deteriorate with use?? Yes.
PS. Roll down a slope in neutral. Stomp on the rear brake. What are those weird noises coming from tranny / drivetrain. Is there some kind of sprag clutch or limiter built into GRiSO drivetrain?? Does that even make sense?
