TR6060 shifting fix!

I have a 2012 Camaro SS with a Texas Speed stage 2 cam, FAST intake, Vararam induction system, long tubes, ZL1 fuel pump with booster, Zex blackout nitrous, all tuned Jannetty Motorsports. It makes 496hp at the wheels all motor and 746hp on nitrous. I’m running the stock TR6060, but upgraded with rear end with an Eaton trutrak, 1320 750hp axles, LPW reinforced cover, 3.91 gears, and all poly mounts. As most of you have experienced the TR6060 becomes sloppy when excessive power is introduced. I tried to buy time with expensive transmission fluid but the shifting and driveline slop was still there. I was about to break down and send my trans to get rebuild by Tick Performance for 3 grand when a friend of my recommended Arch Oil. I researched it and found it was basically a boron oil additive that could be put in a motor or manual transmission. With nothing to lose I drained and filled the tranmission with Valvoline synthetic transmission fluid and added 6 ounces of Arch Oil to it. I drove the car and noticed a little difference. The next day though all the shifting issues were gone! The slop in the driveline feels drastically reduced. It was so much of a difference I regretted not doing a before and after video. It’s been a few weeks now of great shifting and I’m ready to share this with everyone. If you are having the same issues I recommend you give this a try!

So how does oil reduce driveline slop?
2010 2SS/RS
Z/28 intake, ported TB, vr wedge, rod-mod intake, speed engineering LT's, 3" exhaust, ATI -10% pulley, MGW shifter, 160* t-stat, HP Tuners, some suspension work, stickers and a little weight loss. 12.72 @112.36 - improvements coming

Redline D4 ATF got my 1-2 shifts much smoother. With the OEM fluid, I'd get the 1-2 grind during shift and an occasional missed shift while racing. The Redline made shifts smoother. As for driveline slop - it can't help there.
