Is everybody using Redline MT-90?

No, I use MT-85. I think MTL is to thin and does not protect the soft shift forks we have, 90 is ok too.

Running the oil, or just the stickers? (Not unusual to be different). I’d gladly put their stickers on my car for some consideration, but I’ll keep Ford XT-M5-QS in my transmission (or something more exotic that I save for special occasions).

Been running MTL for years, have less transmissions issues than 99% of the class.

I run MT90 since it is hot out here in CA and for a bit of extra overhead on temps due to the thicker viscosity (hopefully).  I generally change annually depending on usage.  YMMV...

Ah, but isn’t there an argument to be made that an oil which is lower in viscosity initially reduces friction and therefore heat? What you want is something that creates an oil film which withstands the pressure with the least resistance (friction...heat) and doesn’t break down quickly from the heat that is produced. And because we have synchronized boxes it needs to be synchro friendly.

Yes :)  Except, I am assuming (hoping maybe?) that a 90 weight oil will not break down as quickly over time as an 80 weight oil from the heat that is produced.
