    does anyone know anything about redline synthetic oils, whether they are a good idea or bad?

    Redline is good, but don't use the D-4 in your manual trans. I have it in my truck rear end but I'm currently switching all my cars over to Amsoil.

    Thumbs up

    There is plenty of info on the web concerning use of Redline Synthetic. Like all oil discussions, everybody has their own opinion for various reasons. However, from what I have researched, Redline is usually considered one of the top brands on the market.

    I use the Redline 75w-90 Hypoid synthetic fluid in all my vehicle differentials. It contains its own limited slip additive and does not require any additional ($) factory additives. It has been an excellent product for me and works as well or better than any other synthetic fluid I've used (Mobil 1, Amsoil, etc.).

    Just my experience over the past couple years on 4 different vehicles.
