    If this isn't sticky-worthy, I don't know what is... so it's now a sticky!

    Huge thanks to all involved in this test, and thanks for sharing it with the community!

    Definitely a big thanks for going through the trouble!

    Could you post up a pic/part # for the Toyota ATF (as to not confuse it with the Toyota*T‐IV*ATF*fluid)?

    Good write up and thank you for your time and efforts. So I have only ever used RP in my 93 Supra TT that see's about 1800Miles on street and 1000Miles on track per year. Shifts great, never had any grinding issues. Should I continue using RP or give the V160 a go?

    Very well done and I appreciate the information. Not too often that someone actually takes the proper steps to create an unbiased representative sample and put it thru the ringer. I hope you guys continue to do more research on our cars

    K maybe I'm missing something. But I thought "Toyota V160 fluid" was a different ATF and hence a different category?
