[s-cars] Redline Tranny Fluid

FWIR the ProconTen system in the Type 44's significantly decreased the
driver and passenger injury ratings in crash tests when it was introduced.
The S6 uses explosive reels to tension the seat belts - that's how they
eliminated the ProconTen in the later cars.

If it was me, I'd retain it.

About the proconten bracket. I had read somewhere when I was doing research
that the S6 didn't use the proconten system at all, but now that you have
asked and some people have said earlier models DID have it, I guess I'll
need to deal with it, as I do have an early model S6. Great.

I know what the proconten system does, but it doesn't seem all that
necessary to me. How much does the belt really need to tighten up if the
engine is hit? I may just need to leave the cables unattached. But, if
possible, I don't see why you can't just find another way to bolt them onto
the tranny. Has anyone had experience with this system that could tell me
whether or not this is even possible? Once again, I'm having to pull
something out of my @$$, just when I thought everything checked out.
