Gearbox synchros?

Selectors and bushes are perfect and well lubricated.
When warmed up it is perfect and it's fine 90% of the time when cold.

Tbh, I feel it would be better with a short shifter as it improved my other starlets gearchange feel. Not those bullshit hypersport things though!

I'm also using redline oil and I have cycled the oil twice in a thousand miles so it's got no shit in it ;)

I used that comma oil as my "flushing" oil when I first fitted the box.
I ran it for a few 100 miles then drained it out and put the redline stuff in. Another couple of 100 miles later my rear main was leaking so ended up draining the redline stuff out again and put yet more fresh redline in again. That's probably a total of £120 worth of oil I've used on that box and barely done 1000 miles :(

I love the comma oils, never had any issues with it, Phil ran it in his GTs so its good enough for the daily. Bought comma to service the Dina too :)

I've always found the comma stuff good. I quite like tripleqx stuff from ecp too.

As I had spent so much on the box I wanted to put the best stuff in it ;)
