JEGS Part Number: 816-58404ShockProof Gear Oil
Red Line Oil 58404 - Red Line Gear Oils & Manual Transmission Fluids Details
Lightweight ShockProof A unique gear oil designed to lubricate racing transmissions and transaxles which see serious loads (not recommended for most syncro-type transmissions). It has excellent low-temperature flow which allows easier shifting when cold. May be used to obtain maximum power transfer in racing differentials which do not see high temperatures. Similar to a 75W140 gear oil, but with the lower internal friction of an SAE 30 motor oil.
Used in most road-racing differentials with moderate power and dogring racing transaxles.
A unique lubricant containing a suspension of solid microscopic particles as an extreme pressure agent--unique solid dispersion which cushions gear teeth to help prevent tooth breakage and allows the use of lower viscosities.
Acting like a liquid grease, the viscosity characteristics of ShockProof allow the lubricants to resist throwoff and provide the protection of a greater film thickness with relatively light fluid viscosity, offering a "best of both worlds" balance of low drag and superior protection.
ShockProof products work in a variety of differential and transmissions, however, should not be used with pumps, filters, and with small lines--these fluids are designed wet sump or splash type lubrication.
Red Line Gear Oils and manual transmission fluids are designed to give improved gear protection at high temps. They reduce differential temps 10-70°F. Efficiency improvements between 1-5% are typical. The synthetic base stocks and additives allow the gear oils to carry higher loads compared to petroleum lubricants.
