MT-85: NEW FROM RED LINE
FOR MANUAL TRANSMISSIONS & TRANSAXLES
• New 75W85 GL-4 Gear Oil bridges the gap between Red Line MTL and MT-90
• Excellent gear and synchronizer protection, offers easier shifting and less wear
• Designed for Nissan, Mitsubishi, Hyundai, Kia and NV4500 applications
New from Red Line Oil is MT-85™, the latest in a full-synthetic family of products for manual transmissions and transaxles. This 75W85 GL-4 gear oil is designed to fill the viscosity gap between MTL (70W80 GL-4) and MT-90 (75W90 GL-4), making it a perfect fit for many Nissan, Mitsubishi, Hyundai, Kia and NV4500 pickup truck transmission applications.
“MT-85 should be a big help for installers, tuners and enthusiasts,” said Cameron Evans, Red Line’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “There are many 75W85 GL-4 gear oil applications on the market, yet very few alternatives to the expensive OE factory fluids. We think this fluid will be a hit with Nissan Z-car fans and Mitsubishi Evolution owners, as well as gear oil customers for a viscosity in between our MTL and MT-90. Installers and quick lubes should find it extremely useful as well as it fills a big void for them.”
MT-85 provides superior gear and synchronizer protection, while its balanced slipperiness provides an improved coefficient of friction for easier shifting over a range of temperatures. This product is safe for brass synchros, as it lacks the damaging, reactive sulfurs found in most GL-5 oils. MT-85 satisfies the gear oil viscosity requirements of 75W and 85W as well as SAE 30 and 5W30 motor oil viscosities. Recommended for GL-1, GL-3, and GL-4 applications, as well as where most special synchromesh fluids are specified
