    Default Transmission Oil...Which one to use?

    Hey guys,

    Will be driving down to Mebl for the F1 next week...Go Webber!!!

    Its the very first inter state trip the Pug will be making

    But before i do i'd like to give the Gti 180 a go over

    Im going to be changing the Coolant, Brake fluids and transmission oil etc

    engine oil was only done 2K ago so thats fine....

    The car has only covered 12K how ever its done 3 track days at wakefield plus numerous pug drive days so the brakes and gearbox have been...well used enthusiastically

    Which brand would you recommend/what brand have you used before...thoughts please???

    ps im doing this saturday so quick replies would be "greatly" appreciated

    I used Neo full synthetic in the gearbox... seemed to clean up the shift on the GTi6...

    Shame you're not in Queensland, I could have sent you round to see George at Cadillac Oils.

    Their gear lubes are well known for smoothing up the gearchange...

    Peugeot state the gearbox is sealed for life. That doesn't mean you can't change your oil, and since you are using it on the track you want to. But after only three track days and a total of 12k I don't think it is necessary.

    From what I hear Chris, the later model ones go well on the synthetic stuff whereas the earlier types such as the Mi16/BX16V are a completely different kettle of fish. Got something to do with the material the synchros are made out of.
    The system I 've perfected over the years using VMX80 and Nulon G-70 and then changed a few thousand down the track works like magic but may work in reverse on the later ones..

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!
