Is the Redline stuff better at 70% more expensive?
Our first 2 road race cars were Subaru 4EAT transmissioned cars. 1 was an SVX with inherent trans issues on those cars. The other was a 96 Impreza L.
The SVX ran about 10k miles on track with the Redline Hight Temp ATF before it was traded in.
The Impreza L was a full on race car, cage, striped out, and did not only sprint races but also did enduros, some as long as 8 hours at Watkins Glen. It did about 50k miles on track and had 100K on it before we started to track it.
Neither car had transmission issues, in fact the Impreza L transmission was removed when we sold the car and put into my dad's 97 Legacy L where it drove another 2 years and about 25k miles more before he sold it!
All the cars ran Redline High Temp ATF, so for me the slight increase in cost is well worth it. In fact when we do the 30k/60k/90k service on our customers cars they by default get either the Redline High Temp ATF or Motul Synthetic ATF as part of the service.
