1st track day in the books...
Yesterday I took the plunge and drove my first (of many) track days at Gingerman Speedway here in Michigan. I ran 3 20 min runs (had to sit out one because of major break fade). So my question is I NEED NEW BREAK FLIUD. Besides going to the dealer and getting fluid there, what is a good quality fluid for a daily driver and track days every month or two?

By the way, driving on the track really is the most fun on 4 wheels:D I never thought I would see my car tires look and feel as sticky as they became after the third run! My gearbox became smoother then I had ever felt it as well - like butter. I kept my revs between 4000-6500 and the engine ran smooth and pulled hard the whole time. The Boxster S, what a car!!

any DOT 4 brake fluid will be an improvement:)

much higher boiling point.

I have used Pentosin DOT 4 for years in all my street and track cars

I have also found the Boxster brakes to be very fade resistant...

If this was your first foray to the track...I would suggest that you were over braking.:eek:..pretty typical for a track newbie.

ATE blue

I flushed the system today with ATE super blue. The brake pedal feels a little bit stiffer then before. Thanks for the recomendation. It took just over an hour with a power bleeder.:cool:
