Gear lube Q

I hope you're kidding.
I was told to mix half honey and half antifreeze.
The FSM recommends 75W-90.

Any special blend besides weight?

Good choice with GL-5... i think its the best for anything..Limited slip or not.. I think putting in the additive is "Retarded"... although it sure does smell bad!
GL-5 is gear lube period, thats like saying ATF is a good idea for an auto tranny :cool: Its the API spec for gear to gear setups.
In a LSD, which btw, not in trannys, unless its an STi do need, and require the "smelly stuff" or you're gonna be repacking clutches real soon, theres a reason why engineers and not 16 year olds design these things
Retarded? i'll let my autistic friend know that he is actually LSD friction modifier, i'm sure he'd get a kick out of that.

BTW, as i said before, you don't need the friction modifier in the tranny cause there is no LSD, and GL-5 doesn't have friction modifier, cause if it did, you wouldn't need to add it now would you?
