In over ten years of track events and racing, including 13 hour races, I have never had a spongy pedal with the Ate fluids.
Thank you for the valuable experience sharing and info!
So you're saying theoretically I can leave the ATE fluid in longer?
That info about it compromising DSC /ABS related functionality has me a little concerned though.
I would think the dealer would not be foolish enough to put a fluid in or perform any work that could potentially invite liability, no?
