I've seen references in this forum about "ATE Super Blue" brake fluid. Do I have that right? What's good about it? Did I see that it comes in different colors? Does it have a DOT rating? Most important - Where can I get it?

OK, I've run out of dumb question for today.

Yes, it's ATE Super Blue. I ran it in my '92 Mustang convertible road racer. It's got a fairly high boiling point, so it can withstand a beating.

I got it at www.raceshopper.com

I got mine from CDOC via Amazon.com, about a dollar more than elsewhere, but have some recourse thru Amazon if it did not work out. Took about a week. High boiling point and low moisture absorption, comes in a metal can. Its my understanding that its OEM for BMW and a few others.

Castrol LMA is also supposed to be pretty good, but I have never used it.

Turkey Master,

Do some research first!

I did so 2 years ago during the winter when searching for something higher than Motul. What I found was that super blue is basically crap. It's fine for the street but something like 435F boiling point (from memory). Ford HD is like 429 at about 1/10 the cost. Motul is about 490 and I use Wilwood exp600 in my racecar which is about 530. The wilwood is about $20 for 1/2 L. For the street, I use dot 3 from autozone which is $1.99 for a 1L bottle. If you want to splurge, spend $3.59 for Dot 4, but you won't notice any difference.
