changed gearbox oil today, washed the car and took the time to take some photos:
thumbs up..did the oil make any noticeable difference??
it did, shift are smooth as butter now
happy days..might have missed but which oil did you go for??
the oil castrol recommends; Castrol Syntrans V FE 75W80
have you got a diff fitted??
yes a quaife
so oil is suitable for diffs and quaifes then??may give it a go when the time comes..cheers
You don't need a specific oil for a torsen style diff (like the quaife) in our cars. You might need a different oil when using a plate diff.
ok cheers..will check it out...
i have this in
Which incidentally is the worst gearbox oil I’ve had in mine I’m sure.
Right after swapping I’ve felt notchiness (Not even a hint of crunching thank god) I’ve never ever had before. Something I never had with the standard Elf oil in 16 months and 8k. And Im really gentle on my box and have had 3 oil changes so far......
So after talking to Northloopcup - I’m going to try some Redline next week.
The Castrol stuff Ken has just used is highly rated by a couple of the track guys I’ve seen here recently. So will be interesting to see how that fares longer term.
**Your mileage might vary. In fact you’ve got an R26 box Pav I think.
Are they standard size mate? If so I'd have them?
im sorry Syer..im sure it varies as you said..know guys who uses it and cant fault it..im 50-50 on it at the moment,hence my interest in a different brand..

Long time since i've posted here, back in november I drove on a wet track for the first time. It went well...make sure to watch the video.
Noticed some slack in the steering lately, so it's now in the garage to have it sorted. Not sure yet if I'll need to swap the entire rack or the just the tie rods.
Need to get this thing sorted back to 100% very soon as it needs an MOT next month.
Overtaking rules are slightly different to UK
let's hope it's just your tie rods or another steering part
