I'll probably go with pure D4 ATF next though as I think it'll be better for, on average, colder climates such as Canada
Redline D6 is closest to the factory fluid (MTF-LT-3), and now recommended by RL for our gearboxes, it's about 10% thinner than D4. Warmer climates, you won't notice a difference, but in Canada you will.

Gearboxes are manufactured with tighter and tighter clearances, requiring thinner fluids.
