    No problems at all......but I change the diff fluid every 2500 miles ....so this time around I put in Royal Purple 85-140 that comes with the FM already in it.....
    just curious what my fellow GoatHeads have in theirs....

    Hey Rob....I know often we do something and the "buttdyno" will confirm for us what our minds want it too....
    but....I swear this thing hooks quicker....now how in the hell is that possible?
    Mebbe the Amsoil didn't engage the slip diff as quickly...hell I dunno...just feels like it hooks instantly.....is very quiet back there

    Could be the FM additive? I know lots of people over use it and actually loose the posi because its too slick. I haven't used any FM in 15 years. I just use synthetic and change it every year and never have a problem.

    So maybe the RP uses less FM than the Amsoil and since its not allowing as much slippage, you're using both wheels now.

    Makes perfect sense....I put about 40 miles on her after the change...just cruising at 75MPH on the country roads......I nailed her at a stop sign in town....I swear she locked up and exploded....in the past she spun and hooked....but not this explosion....the FM comment you made is probably right as I think about it....the Amsoil came out like water.....

    Just have to realize that FM isn't needed at all. Its purely cosmetic. It could chatter until your teeth fall out, but it doesn't hurt the rear at all. All the FM does is cause it to slip so you don't feel it. If too much is used, you'll end up with 1 wheel burnouts.
