    Brakes, wheels, brake fluid?! Ugh!


    Ok so my wrx is quite shakey when I brake semi-hard to hard. Soo I'm thinking new rotors in front. Along with fluid, possible pads.but as I read on fluids... I came into a wall. Which fluid? I've read just get get cheap fluid. Because performance fluid needs more heat and attention. Can't lie, I'm trying to find a track I can race but it's slim pickings. Sooo mainly dd/street driving for me. What would anyone recommend for brake fluid?

    Also I've fallen in love with the bbs style 2009 STi wheels. Anyone know for sure they fit a 09 wrx hatch?

    ATE Super Blue or Motul RBF600. No the sti wheels wont bolt on, you'd need some adapters to run them.

    i don't think that the super blue is technically street legal (not that you'd ever get a ticket for it i would hope!), but you could use ATE TYPE 200 which is supposedly exactly the same without the dye. a lot of guys over on the miata forum who track alternate blue and type 200 so they know when they've bled all the old fluid out.

    Boo! Oh well on sti wheels. But are adapters pricey?

    Lol I live in Florida... Most non-street legal things are wayyyyy over looked! Lol yay!

    Hmm so between motul and super blue/ type 200. I feel like motul is the way to go mainly because of how often I read about people going with motul.

    Thx guys for input . Don't be afraid to school me in braking, I'm still trolling forums on it but personal experience is always what I look for in advice .

    i just installed carbotech bobcat pads up front, new stoptech ss lines, and motul rbf600 fluid. i used stoptech sp pads in rear. brakes feel very good. just make sure you bleed good. the motul fluid is pricey compared to ate.

    The price is what does slow me on motuls. But if a the extra buck is worth while, then so be it. But if super blue is close then super blue here I come.
