    MTX Trans Fluid?

    So after running the mustang out at speedworld for the first time. i came to a stark realazation. i need to do something about the fluid in my T-45. what would you guys suggest be the best thing to put in it? i know the fluid in it is probably the original fluid, so even a stock fluid would probably be better. but i want to go with something synthetic, so it will possibly shift better.

    oh, incase you wondered, i ran a 15.1 at 93mph. yea. it was that slow. but i had a blast doing it! and once i can shift better, and hook up a little more, i should be good to go.

    I ran Royal Purple in my T56 over the stock fluid. The "glide" of the gears felt better over stock. I also put on an shitty (i.e. worse than stock) aftermarket shifter at the same time.

    I have a MGW blue handle. It's notchy as hell and I will probably be going to a 5.0

    You are going to love that Tri-ax, I really like the feel of mine. I switched to synthetic fluids in my T-45 and it made a noticable diference. Also went to a synthetic rear end fluid too, It has a lot less friction which is good. I read a thread somewhere, and the test mule was a 93 Cobra, and after a full synthetic fluid swap ( engine, transmission, and rear end) they " Proclaimed " to pick up a few extra rwhp. I did not feel anything different by switching mine, but it does run a lot smoother now. I used royal purple in the transmission and the rear, and amsoil in the engine. J.
