Default Place to buy Motul or ATE Super Blue

Can anyone recommend an online store to buy Motul or ATE Super Blue brake fluid? I can't seem to find it locally.

Thanks

Try Nativo motorsports, PM Nativo on this site, he is in Puerto Rico, I spoke with him a few times and he seems really cool and willing to help out. He told me he sells almost all Motul fluids, so that should be a start.

I get my Super Blue from these guys:

www.hmsmotorsport.com

I think it's about $11-12. They also carry the Gold version, too.

Default brake fluid

Looking quickly at the specs for the ATE, it looks to be ok for daily driving applications. Anyone else care to add input here?

Thanks

Switching to goodrich stainless lines, so I want to replace at the same time

ATE Superblue is great. It seems to have solved my brake fade problems.

I've had it in there for 7k miles now with no fade or brake problems. That's about 6k miles longer than I've ever been able to go with regular fluid before having issues with it.

It is also nice that it is blue. You can tell more easily if it gets tainted and it also makes bleeding easy (if you are switching from a regular colored fluid).

If you're not diehard Superblue, you can try the Castrol or even the Valvoline. I ran the Valvoline @ both Summit Point, and had no issues at all. (okay, I warped a rotor... damn SS lines make it too easy to get HARD on the brakes. ) My car is a bit heavier than the RS's and I certainly dont drive like a granny.
If you look at the ratings, the castrol and valvoline are not that far behind the ATE stuff, and for 10$ you can get 64oz (2 32s) and still have money to eat at micky d's

I'm about to do a True test of the brakes this Feb as there will be 2 people driving my car on a track weekend. muhahahha

Just my $0.02

You can buy Motul fluids from www.panteracars.com

I just got a case of the 5.1 DOT fluid from them for $70 bucks plus shipping. That's 12 half liter bottles.
