Motul discontinue their 75w90?

I looked on line and the oil I've been running for the past whatever years was all sold out. I went on motul's site and only see this https://www.motul.com/us/en-US/products/motylgear-75w90 Did they just rename their product? If not, what is the goto trans and diff oil for someone that autocrosses and does track sprints?

Itís been OOS for a few months now, but Iíve been seeing a lot of stores saying theyíre expecting new stock soon. In the meantime Iíve been thinking of giving Ravenol MTF-1 a try. Itís gl4/5 compatible and yellow metal safe like Gear300 and doesnít have LS additive, but slightly thinner at 75w85.

I might wait it out then. Not sure it is enough to matter but I don't think running thinner fluids while boosted is a smart move.

Yep probably best to play it safe with boost!

It's been on global backorder for nearly a year. It's coming back.

In the meantime, if you order Motul Gear 300 or its variants from CSG, someone will contact you offering you appropriate alternatives and/or upgrades at no additional cost, until Motul is back in stock.
