Default Redline oil

I'm going to flush my transmission soon and a friend suggested I switch to Redline oil. I remeber seeing this in an old thread but after some diligent searching I can't find it. Was it just Redline Synthetic ATF oil or another type? I looked at redlineoil.com and it looks like that is the one to go with, just thought I'd double check here before wasting some long distance minutes. Thanks.

Redline makes all kinds of oil, engine & tranny. The BMW guys swear by it, especially in manual trannies. I don't think you could go wrong.

Yes its Redline Synthetic ATF. DO NOT USE MOBIL 1 SYNTHETIC ATF. BAD IDEAS. I know from experience.

we just use generic stuff, by Archer. I think its a local company, and my dad is a dealer so we get a discount and get it by the barrel. We use it in all of our vehicles (buncha cars and farm equipment) and I dont think we have had any problems...
