Thanks OldNuc. Once upon a time I switched from stock gear oil to the specified Redline synthetic in another brand vehicle and it shifted amazing, well, noticeably smoother into every gear while moving. It was worth the price.

Aren't all Transynd spec oils fully synthetic just like Amsoil? Torque Drive isn't even certified 'fully spec' by Allison is it? Supposedly just 'similar to TES295'?

So that first gear blocking while sitting still isn't helped by oil, it's a design issue?
