Couldn't tell any signifcant functional difference in clutch operation between Rotella synthetic 5W-40 and petroleum-based 15W-40, myself, but that doesn't mean it's not there.

The two lubricants may have different lubricities, and different engagement characteristics, but--I don't consider synthetic oil (within manufacturer's recommended specifications) necessarily harmful; YMMV!
