An addendum-I went to the ATE site to try and find someone in Canada who sells their products (didn't find one-anyone who knows of a place in Vancouver, the northwestern tip of Washington, or a chain let me know).

The ATE site made a big deal about their low viscosity fluid: http://www.ate-na.com/generator/www/...bf_sl6_us.html
The point of the low viscosity fluid seems to be that, at cold temperatures (i.e. when the ABS may be required, unlike on a track when it's in the way) you will find that the reaction time is significantly reduced with a standard DOT4, regular viscosity fluid.



As seen below, it is a DOT4, ISO6 low viscosity brake fluid for electronic (i.e. ABS) braking systems. There's some interesting information about the various boiling points of the fluid as well.
