Watch one of his videos on knives, it will give as much technically valid information on ATF as your suggestion would do.

I just emailed Project Farm linking to this thread and suggesting an ATF SHOWDOWN for: Valvoline Maxlife/Import, Castrol, Mobil 1, Amsoil, Triax Global, Lubegard Complete, Redline... hope he replies!

Don't hold your breath.. he's busy counting all the coin his channel generates! (lucky dog!...)

don't worry, I'll send a follow up email soliciting a response from him within a week! I run the Brave browser, all annoying youtube ads blocked grin2
 
Guess what??? I didn't even need to contact his AGENT nor his ENTOURAGE!!! slobber Project Farm is the real deal y'all! Hi discountdon, Thank you very much for the positive feedback. I read the comments on the BOBISTHEOILGUY forum and found it a little surprising that someone doubted you'd get a response. lol. I reply to nearly everyone who leaves a comment on a video and every email message.. I do understand their skepticism. Very few channels interact with viewers, and I realize that each channel has their own workload and way of doing things. For me, it's important to interact, help others, and learn from them as well. I've very interested in testing ATF but I need to first reach out to some contacts with expertise in this area. While I don't have expensive test equipment, I believe there's a way to gain information regarding quality and performance without a million dollar lab. I'll see what I can do. Thanks again and best regards, Project Farm

Good on him for replying. +1 Tell him to join and create a thread to solicit input.

He cannot, just as he cannot meaningfully test motor oils. What he does on the videos is only for entertainment and revenue generation.

Exactly. ATFs would be even further out of the realm of that rig. It would be like testing Shell vs Costco E10 93 gasoline by running them through a diesel engine. ATFs are little more than glorified hydraulic oils. I know ATI has the equipment to bench test torque converters with different fluids, but I'm sure PF doesn't have hundreds of thousands of dollars for said equipment. Much less being able to test the friction/grip of clutches with different fluids.

There is no way he can test ATF and receive any meaningful results. The facilities I work with have motored dynos, sensors to measure pressures and torques, and are run through a series of FZG and low velocity friction apparatus (LVFA) machine tests, an SAE#2 machine test (SAE 940281), a system to determine Mu(v) profiles, and various scan tool adapters for different transmissions which I doubt he has.

wow, I never thought project farm would actually get involved in this thread, interesting! Maybe I should jump to the tools section and begin discussing a BOLTR, is AVE listening?

Let us know if he rides over in the tractor, two stroke bike or the ranger, ok?
