    Need Help DCT Transmission Question

    Hoping someone with an older DCT model can respond to this..... I have a 2013 DCT, which I've owned for over a year.

    Fork Oil.

    So would the opposite be true... a thinner viscosity oil providing more brake drive and a smoother suspension response over pumps. I definitely won't be experimenting with this. Just curious if anyone has found an oil that they believe works better than the stock oil. Thanks!
