Weird, can't get it to link correctly. From TireRack:

Quote:
NOTE TO FLORIDA RESIDENTS ONLY: ATE Super Blue Racing Brake Fluid,
due to its blue color, cannot be registered in and is not DOT-approved
for street cars in Florida.

Humidity? Water collecting in the cylinders ? apparently, they've never been to Houston and San Antonio.

Weird either way

I thought I saw some where that you can get the ATE in gold/yellow also. Just wondering if its also illegal.

You can, but I think the different colors are different grades.

ATE -ATE Brake Fluid Types and Container Sizes

and this link says they have yellow and blue colors.

from what I heard the colors were only so you would be able to tell when you have fully flushed out your system (fluid would switch from blue to gold or vice versa)
