[DML] Re: Jumping Out of 5th Gear



John - The Redline MTL is great for transmissions, but NOT for the 
differential portion of the transaxle which exists in the DeLorean 
application.  The MTL just doesn't have the shear stability for diff 
use.  I would personally recommend using a good synthetic gear oil 
that meets GL-5 specifications.  I believe the MT-90 nearly fits that 
criteria, as do several other products from Castrol and Amsoil.  
According to the Redline website, the MTL (which is rated to GL-4) 
should not be used where GL-5 is specified, but MT-90 comes closer, 
even though it is also rated to GL-4.  They say that 75W90NS is the 
Redline product to use for our GL-5 application.  I use a Castrol 
synthetic gear oil in Winged1.
