Default #6 Drive Lube?

I use to run Amsoil in the wet sumps,running Torco in my dry sumps.
I will try Amsoil this year and do some testing.Any application I have used amsoil in has improved part life and decreased running temperature's..

Which Amsoil lube are you going to run in your wet sumps? I was thinking of trying something other than Torco as well.

Torco MTF. I really hate breaking parts because I was trying something new. Why risk $75,000 drives on different oil?

Yep, definitely do not want to do trial and error or experiment.
Was just wondering if there were any "proven" options.

Thanks Brad.
