Default Which ATE brake fluid?

Hi,

I am going to flush my brake fluid soon and decided to use ATE. Now there are 5 different types of brake fluid: http://www.ate-na.com/generator/www/...f_info_us.html

The SL6 has the lowest viscosity but I'm not sure what this really does.
Which one is recommended for the car?

I have the TYP 200 in mine right now. TYP 200 and the Super Blue Racing are the same fluid except with different dyes. TYP 200 is amber colored, and I'll let you guess what color the Super Blue is. Best bang for the buck out there. Very popular among the racers.

BTW, any DOT 3 or 4 fluid will be "recommended" for the car. DON'T use DOT 5!!! It's silicon based and will ruin your system.

One neat thing to try with the ATE fluids: buy one color, then when you need to bleed your brakes again, switch to the other color. You can tell when the old fluid is flushed out when the fluid changes color.

Some good alternatives to ATE include Motul RBF660 and StopTech STR600/STR660.

Get two liters. According to an earlier post I found here, it takes 1 1/2 liter to do a good flush on an S197.

I just flushed my entire system after adding SS lines. I used ATE Super Blue. Got it from Amazon.com with free shipping. I bought two cans but only needed one. I bled the brakes with the absolute best bleeder ever, Motive Power Bleeder. You can literally bleed out all your old fluid 4 corners in less than 30 minutes. The Super Blue fluid makes it easy too......you know when all the old crap is gone cause it turns blue. LOL

I had the local dealer flush the system including the ABS, and it took liter to flush.
