each tranny, needs special additives in its oil, which have more ore less friction characterisics

my opinion
dreiduke, Great point that each transmission needs special additives.

Especially those special transmissions that need more ore and less friction. Personally, I would want less ore in my transmission fluids.

LOL, I am sure you meant more or less friction additives.
