who's got a good price on this stuff?
I'd like to get a case of it, but with half blue and half gold (for easy flushing)

Chris--You can substitute "Genuine Mercedes Benz" fluid for the gold.

BMP Racing. $7.95 a quart, as advertised in Grassroots. They may put up a small fight, but they will give it up at that price.

Take a look at Valvaline SynPower Brake fluid at your local parts place. It is very close to ATE with boiling points and much cheaper and off the shelf localy.

ATE Dry Boiling Point - 536 F
SynPower Dry Boiling Point - 502 F

ATE Wet Boiling Point - 392 F
SynPower Wet Boiling Point - 343 F

Just happen to have a can of each.

Lots of my track buddies have switched and since we change fluid all the time no one I know has had a problem with boiling fluid.

On a related note, is there anything that you can use (safely) to 'dye' the fluid, to make it easier when flushing? I know ATE makes the blue and gold fluids, but I'm using Motul.

I've been using the Valvoline Synpower brake fluid with good success in my Spec RX7. The dry boiling point is pretty high and the price is reasonable. and I can get it at the local Checker. I bleed the brakes after every weekend, and so I am probably replacing it 3 or 4 times a year.

I used to use the Valvoline stuff until I started racing at NHIS. I would routinely boil the fluid. Since I switched to Blue, I haven't had a problem.
