Additives and Fluids Designed For Improved Performance
- Excellent high-temperature and high-speed performance
- Viscosity Stable
- Reduced friction means less heat components last longer
Most lubricant manufacturers make a small number of automotive products, maybe three motor oils, two gear oils, a grease, and an ATF. All applications have to fit one of these universal products. Unfortunately, the automotive world is not quite so simple. And even if one of these compromise products works, perhaps a product formulated with the intended application in mind might provide a few percent better power, efficiency, or lap times.
Red Line Synthetic Oil Corporation has the most complete line of automotive lubricants available. Red Line realizes that reducing friction is necessary in a rear differential, but that friction is actually necessary in a transmission so that synchronization may occur. No lubricant can do a perfect job for both. The same is true for engines. Reducing friction is a goal of engine lubricants, but the detergents used in most motor oils compete with the friction reducers for the metal surface. So if you want the lowest friction, use an oil formulated for the lowest friction. Red Line manufactures Racing Oils which contain few detergents, so no compromise has to be made.
First we will discuss motor oils. Most motor oils are designed to lubricate three test engines - a Ford 4-cylinder, an Oldsmobile V-6, and single cylinder Caterpillar diesel. Oil formulations are optimized to adequately lubricate these engines, but not so well that a lot of money is left on the table - the motor oil shelves are very cost competitive. These oils will adequately lubricate most automotive engines, even many high-performance engines, because the manufacturers know that the highway patrol will catch you before high-speed operation can cause significant damage.
Now take these products to the track and all bets are off! Try an endurance race with the 5W30 oil that the manufacturer recommends. Well, maybe before you try it you ought to take a survey of engineers who work for the auto manufacturers to find out if any of them would even use these "Fuel Economy" oils for their own passenger car during the summer.
Red Line lubricants work under the demanding conditions of high-performance driving. Red Line has been manufacturing high-performance synthetic lubricants for over twenty one years. During the earlier years many would say, "Well, if synthetics are so good, why doesn't the Brand X Oil car use one. Well, now we find that the Brand X team was using synthetics for years (maybe even Red Line) and that many of the major oil marketers now sell synthetic lubricants in an attempt to keep up with technology. Synthetics as a class of lubricants have some significant advantages over even the best petroleum lubricants.
The first advantage is being able to manufacture multigrades that will provide excellent high-temperature and high-speed performance. In order to manufacture a multigrade petroleum, say a 10W30, a 10W oil is thickened with a polymeric plastic substance much like STP. This enables the oil to flow like a 10W oil when cold, but appear to be an SAE 30 when measured at the high temperature (100 degrees C). The problem is that the high temperature testing is done in a tube at the equivalent shear of a very low RPM. At high RPMs a 10W30 multigrade petroleum will appear to have a viscosity between a 10 and a 30 and at very high RPMs the viscosity will be a 10. A synthetic generally does not thicken as much at cold temperatures or thin as much at high temperatures as a petroleum oil, so large quantities of unstable thickeners are not required. The advantage is that at high RPMs and high temperatures a synthetic 10W30 can actually provide thicker oil films than a straight SAE 30. However caution must be advised when thinking about synthetic 5W40 and 5W50s. Here significant amounts of the thickeners used to make petroleum multigrades must be used so that the high-shear viscosity will provide the equivalent to a petroleum SAE 40. This chart shows how the viscosity of a lubricant varies in the different shear zones of an engine.
The superiority of synthetics lies in the fact that a 10W40 synthetic can provide the high-shear protection superior to a petroleum 20W50 in the bearings and cams, while providing a much lower viscosity on the cylinder walls and in the ring pack. This lower viscosity produces more power and also better efficiency and fuel economy. However, wide range synthetics such as 5W50s use the same thickener systems as petroleum 20W50s and suffer from the same viscosity losses in the bearings and cams.
Red Line considers that in most cases an engine should not require the viscosity of a 20W50 and would be simply sacrificing power for doubtful advantage, but the 40Wt Race Oil (15W40) or 10W40 Motor Oil provides significantly improved film thicknesses compared to a 20W50, while providing the advantage of 1-3%
The viscosity characteristics is where the similarities of synthetics end. Not all synthetics are created equal. If metal-to-metal contact does occur, the amount of friction created can make a great difference whether the bearing will spin or the cam and follower will create tremendous heat and wear. This chart indicates that Red Line lubricants provide significantly lower friction. Compared is Red Line with several "high-performance" synthetic and petroleum lubricants. This reduced friction means less heat is generated, so temperatures are reduced, wear is reduced, and more power is transferred to the wheels. Another significant property of Red Line is the stability of the oil with use. Note that after 15,000 miles Red Line produces less friction than the other popular synthetics when new, and some formulations are very weak in friction properties with use.
Red Line also will reduce lubricant temperatures significantly. Track testing done by the Delco Chassis Division of General Motors showed a reduction in both engine and transaxle temperatures of at least 30 degrees F when comparing Red Linemotor oil and to a major synthetic brand. These tests were performed in a Oldsmobile Calais and a Chevrolet Berreta GTZ equipped with the High-Output QUAD 4.
The reduced friction, lower wear, and increased thermal stability all indicate a product which is superior to other commercially available petroleum and synthetic lubricants. This translate into improved protection and more power to the wheels. For example, Boris Said has won the SCCA SSGT class for three years straight using Red Line lubricants in his Camaro with a 305 Chevy V-8. This car has over 7,000 mile of sprint racing on it, all with the same drivetrain components. The engine is taken apart every year, new bearings are replaced simply as a precaution, not because they are damaged. The original rings are still in the engine and there is no evidence of wear on the rings or cylinder walls. This car has been incredibly low-cost to maintain. Boris can without a doubt attribute his victory to Red Line Oil. During the championship race his power steering hose broke on the first lap, pumping all of the fluid out of the system. Pumps aren't made to last 45 race miles without fluid. Pump seizure was a certainty which would have put him out of the race. But the pump never seized with the remnants of Red Line Power Steering Fluid in the system.
Another example is Wayne Torkelson, the owner and driver of the first Ford doorslammer to ever reach 200 mph. Wayne competes in the IHRA Pro Mod circuit with a blown alcohol '55 Thunderbird. As soon as Wayne switched to Red Line Gear Oil he picked up 1.5 mph on the top end. Previously he had been wearing out a ring and pinion every 20-25 passes. Since then he has yet to wear out a ring and pinion in four years. Prior to switching to the motor oil, he would get 3-4 passes on a set of oil rings. Now he gets 85 passes or more. In fact, if the engines have no breakage problems, he can run a whole season on the same rings and 40 passes on a set of bearings.
A National Record Holder in SS/DA, who races a '67 Corvette Coupe with a 427/Powerglide combination, one day switched to Red Line 30WT Race Oil and LightWeight Gear Oil and picked up seven hundredths. It would cost thousands to pick up that much with engine work. After 50-60 passes the motors are disassembled and the internal components look perfect - bearings, rings, cam, and cylinders. Jim Jones, the owner of Traco Engineering, has built 350 V-8 motors for Corvette endurance racing for years. His engines are run by different teams using different oils, many of them other synthetics. He will get engines back from the different teams after a 24-hour race. All engines ran at the same track and have the same number of miles, but he can always tell the Red Line engines from the others. The difference in wear is incredible. The most noticeable difference is in the valve guides. After 24-hours operation on other synthetics they are completely worn, while with Red Line they are still in good condition.
Dyno tests have shown Red Line to provide between 1-3% improvement in power. In a 460 big-block Chevy at 5500 rpm and 175 degree F oil temperature, a petroleum SAE 30 race oil provided 526.8 hp while the Red Line 30WT Race Oil provided 534.4 hp, and increase of approximately 1.5%. Greater differences are usually obtained if the temperatures are higher because of the better viscosity at high temperatures.
Red Line manufactures a cooling system additive called WaterWetter which is capable of reducing the coolant temperature of a high-performance vehicle by 15-30 degrees F and can provide even greater reduction in cylinder head temperature which means greater volumetric efficiency and allows more spark advance. WaterWetter also provides rust and corrosion protection in plain water which can provide additional cooling efficiency compared to antifreeze.
Heavy duty automatic transmission are available for Chevrolet, Ford and Dodge applications to support utility and towing requirements.
Considering have your existing automatic transmission overhauled or replaced, just ask your mechanic three simple questions; first, how many hours will it take him to remove and replace the transmission in your vehicle. Second ask him what his hourly shop rate charge is. The last question is to inquire as to how much it will cost for him to supply and replace your transmission (this will take a minute, he might even have to call you back). Armed with this information call us and check your cost, compare the savings and order the transmission. If you make the arrangements with your mechanic we can even ship the unit direct to his shop.

Positraction Units, don't get stuck again!
There are many designs of Differentials including:
- Conventional or Open
- Limited Slip
- Automatic Locking
- Manual Locking
Conventional differential uses two side gears inside the differential case. Each gear is splinted to accept an axle shaft. These side gears are in turn driven by a set of spider gears. The spider gears, also inside the differential case, ride on a shaft which is pinned into the differential case and through which all the power is transmitted. The case is driven by the ring gear that is bolted fast to the case. The conventional differential is fitted as standard equipment on most vehicles.
On paved roads this system is very successful, giving predictable handling, even tire wear and requiring very little maintenance. However, in off road situations where traction surfaces vary greatly, this type of differential has a major limitation. When one wheel has greater traction than the other, all the power will be directed to the wheel with the least traction.
Limited slip differentials (LSD's) come in a variety of designs. Most use friction plates, cones and/or gears to reduce slippage between each of the tires. these units have a dual power path from the differential case to the axle shafts. Some power is transmitted through the spider gears to the side gears in the conventional manner. The remainder is transmitted by friction between the differential case and the clutch plates and the side gears.
Automatic locking differentials transmit power to each wheel through a pair of dog clutches. Differential action, such as when cornering is provided by automatically disengaging the appropriate clutch when one wheel rotates faster than the other. This results in differential action, that occurs in ratcheting stages rather than being smooth and progressive. Power received by the differential is automatically directed to the wheel with greater traction.
Manually lockable differentials use a conventional differential in conjunction with a mechanical locking device that can be operated at the driver's discretion. when locked, both axles will then turn at the same speed irrespective of the road surface. When it is unlocked, the differential functions as a conventional differential giving predictable handling, long service life and no increase in tire wear.
The Electric or Air Locker unit incorporates its activating mechanism totally inside the differential center. This avoids the need to have complicated piston arrangements hanging off the axle housing. Locking action is controlled by the drive with a push button switch inside the cab.

Positraction differentials ensure maximum traction under adverse conditions, they are designed to keep both wheels in a constant drive mode, with the ability to automatically "unlock" to permit necessary wheel speed differentiation. It also eliminates individual wheel spin for better traction and less tire wear.
|To determine your existing gear ratio: |
Place transmission in neutral and elevate one tire. Mark tire and driveshaft, turn tire two complete revolutions while counting number of turns of the driveshaft. This is your Actual Gear Ratio. i.e. 3 turns + 3.00 ratio, 4.1 turns = 4.1 ratio, etc.
Existing gear ratio and tire size (Dia. in.) 307 ratio and 30 in. tall tires = 2060 engine RPM @ 60 MPH
|Other Formulas that might be useful! |
Ratio = (rpm x tire diameter) divided by (mph x 336)
RPM = (mph x gear ratio x 336) divided by (tire diameter)
|MPH = (rpm x tire diameter) divided by (gear ratio x 336) |
Tire Diameter = (mph x gear ratio x 336) divided by (rpm

Start Saving Money Today!
Whether you are trying to move a couple tons up a steep incline in your work truck or cruising in your motor home - the fastest way is with the right gearing with one of our gear vendor overdrive units. Add the benefits of our final overdrive ratio to reduce engine rpm and increase fuel mileage by typically 20-28%, bolt on horsepower and economy for your your car or truck. With fuel costs overdrive can pay for itself in mileage and engine wear reductions.
Torque (times) RPM (divided by 5252) = Horsepower (this can be expressed) Tq X RPM / 5252 = HP. Our Gear Vendors Overdrive is one of a few products that can work both sides of this equation for real performance gains as well as consistent fuel consumption reductions. Gears are multipliers of torque and our Ratio Splitting capability allows you to shift to a gear with more mechanical advantage than the next stock gear in automatic transmissions and wide ratio manuals. This also means engine rpm drops about half what it did without this overdrive and so rpm is sustained - higher torque and rpm on shift = more HP. And then shift to an overdrive final and reduce both rpm and torque to reduce the manufacture of HP when steady cruising to improve fuel mileage and decrease wear on the engine and engine driven accessories. All these benefits from Gear Vendors ratio splitting performance, at the same time this ratio splitting makes less work for the main transmission in the vehicle to then advance to the next gear (less ratio change) and thus the main transmission itself becomes more reliable. The unit ships in kit format, lots of detailed instructions, parts and in most case all mounts are supplied, typically installation including electronics takes about 8 hours for a skilled installer. Auxiliary Overdrive Units for Pickups and RV's twice the forward gear ratios.
Installed Gear Vendor for 20% better cruising mileage.
Installed Gear Vendor for more Power moving landscape equipment trailer.
Gear Vendor More Power More Mileage for longhauls.
Most auxiliary transmissions are just dual ranges (put them in low for towing, high for running empty) but you still have the big gaps from one gear to the next that rob performance. You could actually go slower than you do now. The UNDER/OVERDRIVE™ is built for giving you a progression of gears with 1/2 the drop in rpm of the stock vehicle so that you stay in the power with close ratio performance. More power than just an underdrive or overdrive and just one of the reasons the GEAR VENDORS UNDER/OVERDRIVE™ is the most industry awarded transmission you can buy.br> Electronic Features
Our overdrive is electronically superior. In older vehicles without computers our simple plug in electronics still provide many features such as AUTODRIVE™ which make your car or truck perform just like it came factory with the overdrive. Those older 3-speed automatics also adjust their shift points automatically because we slow down the governor on the trans whenever the overdrive is on. For you this means the vehicle will not lug and will shift down to a passing gear that is really useful instead of just screaming the engine. In today's computer controlled vehicles we communicate directly with the vehicle so that shift points recognize when you are using the GEAR VENDORS and adjust performance automatically. In either vehicle you can put the electronics in auto and enjoy several features or flip a switch to manual and control everything about the gearing yourself. Take advantage of our 27 years of product development.
YOU'LL NEED QUALITY
Each Overdrive auxiliary transmission represents the combined effort and technology of Gear Vendors, Inc. (the largest producer of overdrives in the world). The very finest in manufacturing, assembly, and R&D facilities are available. Our customers ride with confidence knowing that we offer the only auxiliary transmission available that is approved and used by new car and motor home manufacturers. Component quality is unsurpassed, Sheffield steel planetary gear set, 4500 ft. lb. roller clutch, forged ring gear assembly, common vertex (cone) full throttle shift clutch.
YOU'LL WANT RELIABILITY.
No matter how much enjoyment you derive from the improved performance of gear splitting on hills and overdrive when cruising, if your auxiliary transmission leaves you stranded in the middle of the highway, you'll wish you never made the purchase. Gear Vendors current "P"-Type UNDER/OVERDRIVE™ is the toughest rated product in the industry. Guaranteed to 30,000 lbs. GCVW, the unit relies on a mechanical lockup roller clutch (Sprague) just like automatic transmissions do to handle the extreme torque peaks of initial take off and change of direction from reverse to drive. It is a completely self contained system with its own integral pump and pressurized lubrication, (features not found in any other auxiliary transmissions). Ask these questions of any other auxiliary transmission manufacturer:
- Can the unit get stuck in neutral?
- What if the unit loses all its fluid (leak)?
- Can I shift the unit under any throttle condition (including full throttle)?
- If a major problem occurs, can I simply shut it off and continue driving?
We know the RVer wants a gear splitting/overdrive product that works as well as the rest of his vehicle and can never leave him stranded, period! Price is secondary, Reliability First.
YOU WANT PERFORMANCE.
Power is certainly the No. 1 reason more people choose the Gear Vendors overdrive. There is no other auxiliary transmission available which can split gears as effectively.
In vehicles with automatic transmissions the unit is intended to shift at any throttle position including full throttle and delivers a crisp responsive shift. Shift it as much as you like . . . the internally activated common vertex clutch is designed to last 250,000 miles. Vehicles with manual transmissions also benefit from the constant mesh planetary gear design as both in-shifts and out-shifts are as simple as depressing the vehicles clutch pedal and pushing a button. No syncros to wear out, no grinding gears or mis-shifts possible. The systems sophisticated planetary design has very low friction which means not only will a Gear Vendors last longer, but it's quieter and has less power loss (less than 1hp per 400hp) than any other auxiliary transmission. All Gear Vendors overdrive offer a .78 to 1 (22%) overdrive ratio, designed to be the ultimate gear splitting and overdrive ratio for today's RV's. Anything less than 22% would be less effective at slowing RPM's while cruising in overdrive . . . anything more than 22% wouldn't be effective as a gear splitter when you need power to climb hills or to pass slower traffic. Performance through proper gearing is the cornerstone of Gear Vendors overdrive.
AND BETTER MILEAGE.
There are many devices advertised as remedies for poor gas mileage. Fact is, anyone who tells you how much you are going to gain is just trying to sell you something. Every vehicle represents many different situations, different drivers, different conditions of tuning, different climates and altitudes. The Gear Vendor overdrive is not some magic pill, but twice the number of forward gears for combating all these different conditions.
Every time you shift there are such big changes in transmission ratios that your engine RPM's fall completely out of the power range. You need that half gear between each of your current gears which will not only keep the engine making power but improve its useful life and reliability. You'll no longer be overreving the engine in too low a gear or lugging it in too tall a gear. Plus out of the same device get a gear that lets the engine slow down without slowing down the vehicle which not only can save you a lot of fuel, but greatly reduce engine wear. Imagine the same engine work (RPMs) that currently take you 15.56 miles - can take you 20 miles in overdrive (that's a lot less wear) not to mention the fuel savings and longer range. There is a lot less engine noise in overdrive also. We have included a frequently ask questions section that may answer some of your questions, don't see answers you need, just give us a call we will be happy to review your application with you. The following links provide specific application information, performance data that you can expect and the price data for your specific vehicle.

"Tired of a dead battery, New Dry Cell Technology provides 3 times the life and 60% more Cranking Power"
The combination of extreme power and performance makes ODYSSEY® batteries perfect for a range of applications, including auto/LTV, marine, commercial, racing and powersports. ODYSSEY batteries deliver twice the overall power and three times the life of conventional batteries! Below information is presented show how this design revolution makes performance possible!
The Odyssey battery ingeniously uses absorbed glass mat (AGM) technology to offer, in onebox, the characteristics of two separate batteries. It can deep cycle as well as provide enormous cranking power.
These batteries are capable of providing engine cranking pulses in excess of 2250A for 5 seconds as well as 400 charge/discharge cycles to 80% depth of discharge (DOD). A typical starting, lighting and ignition (SLI) battery can do one or the other, but not both.
Odyssey AGM batteries will doboth - provide short duration high amperage pulse or low rate long duration drains.
We offer a full line of batteries, charges and accessories.
Why use Odyssey Batteries
Worry free operation
Major Benefits over Acid filled Batteries
Phenomenal starting power and massive deep cycle reserve power in one battery!
Some batteries provide enormous cranking power. Others, deep cycle reserve power. The revolutionary ODYSSEY™ battery is designed to do both.
How is this possible? The answer begins with flat plates made of 99.99% pure virgin lead - not lead alloy. Pure lead plates can be made thinner, so we can fit more of them in the battery. More ODYSSEY battery plates mean more plate surface area. And that means more power - twice as much as conventional batteries.
In fact, ODYSSEY batteries are capable of providing engine cranking pulses in excess of 2250 amps for 5 seconds - double to triple that of conventional batteries, even at very low temperatures. And they can handle 400 charge-discharge cycles to 80% depth of discharge.
The extreme combination of power and performance makes ODYSSEY batteries perfect for a range of applications, including automotive/LTV, marine, commercial, and powersports.
Designed and built to last up to 3 times as long.
Pure Lead Plates: Constructed from 99.99% pure virgin lead, ODYSSEY battery plates are extremely thin, so more of them can fit into the battery. More lead plates equals more power.
Tin Alloy Coated Brass Terminals: Brass terminals coated with a high quality tin alloy ensure secure, corrosion-free cable connections.
Compressed AGM Plate Separators: Before being inserted into the case, the Absorbed Glass Mat plate separators are compressed by 28% for extreme vibration resistance.
Burned Internal Cell Connections: Built to stringent specifications, cell connectors are burned to the plates to resist vibration and eliminate internal sparking
WHY USE ODYSSEY® BATTERIES?
With an eight to twelve year design life (float) and a three to ten year service life, ODYSSEY batteries save you time and money because you do not have to replace the battery as often. ODYSSEY batteries are warranted against factory defects for two (2) years for powersports applications; three (3) years in automotive, marine, commercial and industrial applications and; four (4) years in the case of the 75/86-PC1230, 25-PC1400, 35-PC1400, 34-PC1500, 34/78-PC1500, 65-PC1750, 31-PC2150 and PC2250 batteries, except Trolling Thunder™/Marine Dual Purpose labeled batteries, for which the applicable Warranty Period is three (3) years. Since actual warranty can vary with your geographical location, please check with your ODYSSEY battery representative for the warranty
specific to your application.
The 5 second cranking power of ODYSSEY batteries is double to triple that of equally sized conventional batteries,even when the temperature is as low as - 40°C (-40°F), -30°C (-22°F) for PC2250. Also, with simple constant voltage charging (alternator or independent charger), there is no limitation on the inrush current, so the user is
assured of fast charge recovery.
The ODYSSEY battery may be installed in any orientation (except inverted) without sacrificing any performance attributes. There is no fear of any acid spillage as ODYSSEY batteries recycle the internal gas during operation or charging. The valve regulated design of the ODYSSEY battery eliminates the need for an acid vent tube; eliminating the fear of acid burns or damage to expensive chrome or paint.
ODYSSEY batteries are of military grade technology and have endured rigorous tests that demonstrate their overall ruggedness and exceptional tolerance of mechanical abuse.Ready out of the box
ODYSSEY batteries are shipped fully charged. If the ODYSSEY battery's voltage is 12.65V or greater, simply install the battery in your vehicle and you are ready to go! If below 12.65V, boost charge following the instructions in the ODYSSEY battery Owner’s Manual and/or Technical Manual. Putting a boost on the battery will not damage it, even if its voltage reads higher than 12.65V.
Unlike conventional batteries that require a recharge every six to twelve weeks, the ODYSSEY battery can be stored for up to two years at 25ºC (77ºF) from a fully charged state. These batteries can be stored for two years or when the open circuit voltage (OCV) drops to 12.00V, whichever comes first.
Should the ODYSSEY battery become deeply discharged, simply recharge following instructions in this manual.
