Seeking brake fluids of different color

Doesn't exist. DOT regulations require it to be a specific color, that's why ATE Super Blue was pulled. Why not just switch to a fluid that doesn't need constant flushes, like SRF?

Oh that's why i can't find it anymore. Crap. Thanks. I don't think a fluid that "doesn't need constant flushes" makes it past the track inspection requirements?

Castrol SRF does unless you overheat it.
