New Stainless Brake Lines - What Brake Fluid?

Whats up guys, I plan on doing pads / SS brake line swap this season.

What brake fluid do you recommend? I usually use Motul, but wanted to hear what your opinions are if there's a better option.

Is this for potential circuit use?

There's a number of posts stating brake feel didn't change with SS lines up front for street use if that's what you were after. The OE lines are apparently reinforced to prevent expansion.

I found a local supplier here in Toronto for the SS lines (great price BTW), the pads needed a swap so i figured i would swap em out since were in their already.

I upgraded to SS lines and noticed no difference but they were cheap enough mod.

I thought that the ATE super blue was discontinued, due to the color.
