Best trani and dif fluids?

What is the best trani and rearend fluids to use to possibly free up some power for 1/4 mile and still protect well?

I'm using Royal Purple in mine; Synchromax for the trans and Maxgear for the diff. Works like a champ.

Does the Syncromax help with the notchy feel and difficult 3rd gear issues? I tried Mobil1 but made it worse so I went back to GM stock fluid!

Mine shifts smoothly with no issues going from 2nd to 3rd. Trans and diff are quieter too.

I agree with Doc, actually took his advice from a previous post awhile back, and switched out the diff and manual tran fluid to RP. I staggered it, i switched the diff first (noticed a difference) and then the tranny (even more noticeable). It helped to smooth the shifts.

Thanks Doc.

See post #48 http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...t=97186&page=2. He's using Amsoil Torque Drive. Anyone else try this brand?
