ATE SUPER BLUE BRAKE FLUID - 1 LITER CONTAINER, DOT 4+

Not all DOT 4 fluids are the same! The German ATE Super Blue Racing brake and clutch fluid is the best there is. Developed for endurance racing in Europe, ATE has the highest safety reserve of all DOT 4 fluids due to it's outstanding boiling points. Dry boiling point is 536 degrees F, 122 degrees higher than the DOT 4 minimum. Wet boiling point is 392 degrees F, 133 degrees higher than the DOT 4 minimum.

Notes
Sold in a sealed 1 liter container. Keep un-used fluid in a clean, dry enviroment and tighten cap securely after opening.

DO NOT put brake fluid in your tranny!!!!!!!
If you have a hydraulic clutch it uses DOT 3 brake fluid (in the master cylinder) but you should put honda manual tranny fluid or at least 5w-30 oil into the tranny.

I can get you ATE Super Blue for $29.50 Tax in, and Zeeman's right DO NOT PUT BRAKE FLUID IN YOUR TRANNY!!!!! Who ever you got that info from was clearly talking about your clutch fluid.

Hey Dave would you recommend using ATE Super Blue or the Motul pot3 for a stock Ep3 clutch/brake. Used for daily driving only. "Both without stainless steellines for now, will upgrade to stainless later."

Tranny fluid use this Amsoil 5w-30 Synthetic Manual Synchromesh
Transmission Fluid (MTF)

Hey Kenny, I would probably stick with ATE Super Blue. Motul Makes awsome products, however I have had nothing but positive feed back with Super Blue. We use it for both everyday driving and autocrossing.

I havn't tried the AMS Syncromesh yet, but I'm definetly gonna look into to it!!!
