Post Synthetic Power Steering fluid FYI

For those of you changing your power steering fluid to a synthetic fluid here is Redline's recommendation

"My Subaru 1999 2.5 RS recommends Dextron ATF for the Powersteering unit?? ....
What do you recommend for the Power Steering unit? ..."

Redline's answer: "In your power steering, I would recommend the Red Line D4ATF as a Dexron III is called for."

That reminds me, I need to replace my fluid with synthetic before I run at Lime Rock in a few weeks. I get a *little* bit of overflow from the power steering reservoir when I run it on the track, so I want to see if synthetic's better heat capacity will fix the problem, or if I need a power steering cooler.
