So I noticed. Well, my English may be reasonable, but it has some 
serious flaw's, as is now demonstrated.
Be carefull with MoS2 and graphite in the transmission. It is an 
absolute no-no in limited slip diff's and wet clutches (e.g. OD boxes, 
synchromesh/baulk rings, motorbikes).
I used it when running in engines, which will horrify many, with very 
good results. The running in lasts much longer, typical ca. 10.000km 
with machining at modern (thus tight) tolerances and needs lots of 
discipline, but you will have a gem of an engine if done properly.
