    Anybody ever use this stuff? What are the advantages of it opposed to regular Dexron III? And is it worth it? Thanks.

    I don't know the composition, but I believe it causes the friction plates to "bite" a little harder. Red line synthetic lubricants I've heard is alot better. If I'm not mistaken the tranny and rear lube can be used all the time and the engine oil is for racing. I may be wrong though. But they claim to reduce 1/4 mile times by .2 seconds, which is a hell of alot for just changing oils. That to me means there is alot less parasitic losses in the drive line. If I'm not mistaken 20% of engine power is lost through the driveline of an automatic and rear end. A TH400 loses 10% more than the TH350 due to it's design. But it is stronger and handles alot more abuse.
