Redline vs. LT2

I test drove a car today that had Redline transmission fluid. The shifting had an almost hydraulic assisted feel to it! It was butterry! It was great. It was magnificient.

I've test drove quite a few cars and they all felt the same as my old car; Little rough. I also did a transmission fluid change on my old car with BMW LT2. There was absolutely no difference in the way the car shifted before and after the fluid change/refresh.

If the car shifting so smooth is because of the redline fluid, then this is the best stuff ever made!!!

Bought the car by the way. Loved it.

The difference probably wasn't the brand, but how thick the fluid was. Thicker fluid requires a little more effort to shift, but the shifts are buttery

Redline is a Group V POE basestock oil, LT2 is a Group IV POE at best. You get what you pay for.
