Chain case oil

Chaps, I've written a small piece for my blog on oils, specifically multi grades, which set me thinking. Surely the chain case is an example of an area where we have high pressure loads (on the pins and rollers) which would demand specific additives for a suitable oil. Do many of you use ATF in the ...
