    I just wanted to get some feed back from you guys on what trans oil you guys are using. I am doing a full rebuild of my TH400 that will be built for street/strip use. I came across this oil from Driven and was wondering if it's a good choice? I know their engine oil is good and lots of guys are using it.

    I use just standard type f......never had any issues. biggest thing for any tranny is temp. they say that trans running at 220 compaired to 200 can take 25% of life out of it

    According to the Ron Sessions books, ideal temperature is 175-225*. I like no more than 180* Another reason I like synthetics, they can take more heat.

    Likewise. In the Regal its type F sposed to lock the clutch packs up quicker and being a track only car thats what I want. Riv gets Dextron.

    I run Type F with 4 quarts of Redline Synthetic tossed in.....
    Tried all synthetic and my shifts were too soft....plus this saves some $$$ and my trans guy said it would get most of the benefits of the synthetic....
