I see the boiling points aren't as high as the motul 600 so that's why I ask. It is a Dot 4 fluid and I'm not tracking the car so I was thinking about this fluid. I was also considering the blue and amber switching. thanks.
ATE seems the perfect balance between high enough boiling point, low hygroscopic-ness, low cost and ease of availability ..... I've been using it for trackdays for the past 8+years with no complaints nor problems.
I have used the ATE TYP 200 (Gold) for a while in all my cars, seems to hold up fine at the track. I know the blue dye is reputed to cause some issues with the rubber seals for some cars so I have always stuck to the gold.
thanks for all the replies. I'll take a look at a couple of motorcycle shops in the area because I doubt PepBoys and Kragen carry this product. I may end up having to order this online. I'll stick to the amber colored fluid.
I have used ATE and Motul back-to-back, and have not noticed a difference in performance. ATE is half the price of Motul, though! I get it from Pegasus Racing at pegasusautoracing.com - good prices, fast shipping.
I use ATE Blue and gold - no issues in this car or in my previous car (3rd Gen RX-7 w/ 400hp) on the track or the street. I would hazard that if there wasn't a problem in the RX-7, there won't be a problem with the Elise, given the relative designs of the two braking systems.
Thanks Rob. So you've flushed some cars using Pentosin and it cleared away all the ATE Blue? I've ordered some Amber for this brake flush but I'll consider the Blue for the next flush if it doesn't stain the reservoir.
