Default What kind of Lube are you running ?

Hey guys, just curious what everyone has been running in their motor, diff, and transmission. If it isn't Motul please let me know if you are interested in running high quality synthetics !! We have custom packages for the FA20, and EJ20/25 already but would love to accommodate your specific fluid quantity and viscosity with a new package ! Mention the bottom picture through PM or over the phone for another 5% off
Happy Driving !!!

I run Rotella T6 in the engine, Amsoil magical unicorn jizz in the trans and diff.

I continue this trend amongst all of my vehicles save for the Jeep, which gets Rotella Triple T in the engine, Amsoil magical unicorn jizz everywhere else.

Heh... (MTG in trans, SVG in diff.)

MX6 uses some funky 90w110 or whatever in the trans. Takes a gallon of it. o_O

My fault, reading comprehension FAEL.

I literally stopped reading at "packages for the FA and EJ20/25" and I apologize for that.

Please ignore me...

I think the fluid package that would appeal to the most people is Rotella t6 in the engine, amsoil in the transmission and diff, and rbf 600 in the brakes.

Can you sneak the actual blue super blue fluid into the US for us please?

M1 0W-40 in the engine, Red Line MT-85 in the transmission, Red Line Lightweight Shockproof in the diff. I know, I know, my whole car is going to blow up and burst into flames because I'm not using AMSOIL fluids.

Perhaps the lube thing was just too easy? These guys like it rough, FYI.

I'll just add that RBF600 is tied for my favorite brake fluid. It has great feel and low compressiblity. The other favorite is Castrol SRF, which solves all my habitual late-braking boiled fluid problems on the track.

I'll be honest Motul engine oils are probably among the few I've never used. I'm fairly unsure why Motul has seemingly so many options though. Is there a 5W30 or 10W30 that meets API SN?

Oh but I already am!

Shell Rotella T6 5w40 in the engine
Wix 5135x or M1-110 filters
Amsoil MTG 75w90 in the 6 speed
Amsoil SVG 75w90 in the diff
Amsoil Dominator grease on everything else that moves
ATE SuperBlue/Typ200 in the brakes

The RBF600 is something I've been interested in trying, only because I don't get the color change with the ATE anymore. Now that the SuperBlue is all but disappeared off the market I have no reason to slavishly stick to that brand. Other than that, I'll happily continue to drink the Amsoil coolaid.

I switched from RBF600 to ATE because the motorcycle store I used to buy Motul at was closed one day when I needed some, and ATE was the best fluid I could find. It seems to have been OK ever since then, and since it's half the price and I can't tell the difference, I've stuck with it. I've still got one bottle of the blue stuff left.
