RE: Redlinin'

Everyone seems to keep forgetting about Redline MTL.  MT-90 is great if
you live in a warm climate but in cold climates that have cold winters the
MTL works much better.  Its the same type of stuff as the MT-90  (has the
friction stuff for snchros designating the MT before it for Manual
Transaxle) but is a lighter weight.  75-80 weight where the MT-90 is a
75-90.  yea, bthey are both 75-weight rated but the MTL works better at
low temps.  thats why its there.  Event he Redline Reps reccoment MTL for
low temp areas.  So if you live in Portland, california, florida, NZ, or
any other poace that rarely sees snow then your fine with MT-90.  But if
you wake up 1/2 an hour early to shovel the driveway (wait, we all drive
quattros but you get my point) and have skiiing an hour away from your
front door then you may be best with MTL.

You got it exactly right. They make other stuff for special apps
or tailored for limited slip diffs and so on all of which you
should ignore. MT-90 front and 75W90 rear is the correct setup
for your car.
