Got it in this new tranny I built for the Camaro too! Was thinking about putting it in my Chevy truck TH700r4 as well.

That's the link to the guy's site that really likes the tractor fluid. Interesting read. I bought a 5 gallon bucket of the tractor fluid from Tractor Supply near here for $44. That's 20 quarts of fluid which means it's $2.20 a quart. I'll bet Moble1 is at least $5 a quart.

That tractor fluid has a funny smell to it. It almost smells like a synthetic fluid to me.

Anywho, after I started running the stuff last year I started talking to other racers about it and found a good many of them were already using it? Crap, and I thought I knew something they didn't? O:) Oh well, I got fooled again I guess.
