Default Manual Transmission/VLSD lubricants

I'm not able to get Redline or Motul lubricants locally. What brand of manual transmission fluid and rear differential lubricant (for a VLSD) do you recommend for a 2011 370Z sport coupe touring?
Does the VLSD differential require the addition of a friction modifier?

Other good brands ENEOS, AmsOil, Royal Purple.

No, but if you are planning to drive at high speed you should probably use a fluid with modifier. At our shop the most common one is the ENEOS Gear Oil: JX Nippon Oil & Energy USA, Inc. | ENEOS Gear Oil
