Just giving feedback after 2 track days.

Pedal feel is way better than the Motul RBF660. Not as good as when it was new but definitely not like stepping on a balloon!

I know that for some time it was everywhere out of stock. But things seem changed to better with recently it being restocked in several shops. Of course, not processed order for year and unanswered communication tries is a bit of another issue, no clue how people here can help with that. Only thing i can suggest - is to get not directly from Torque but from one of reselling shops with proven communication/ordering/shipping/refund/etc track/reputation.

I love Torque but I also got tired of waiting , and I'm weary of ordering direct again. Switched to Castrol SRF, doing alright so far.

@enivid CSG has quite a few cases in stock.

@churchx we may need to bite the bullet and just ship via UPS. "Mail" via USPS seems to get lost every time...

The price per bottle is $33.95 and is a direct competitor to Castrol SRF, which is considered the gold standard for brake fluids. If based on that particular track day alone with undersized brakes like the S2000 and using 5 sessions per track day as a metric, here's how the fluid would actually hold up:

Pricing is approximate MSRP and does not necessarily reflect sale prices.
ATE200/ATE Blue (1L) ~$19 (0.1 track days - give me 2 laps)
RBF600 (0.5L) ~$21 (0.2-0.5 track days - can fade in a few laps if you were really going for that hot lap)
RBF660 (0.5L) ~$32 (1-2 track day - hint of fade at the end of each session, but pedal feel continuously gets worse per session)
PMU (1L) ~$56 (2-5 track days - hint of fade end of each session but the pedal feel somewhat comes back)
RT700 (0.5L) ~$34 (still no changes after 6 solid track days and lots of spirited mountain runs)
Castrol SRF (1L) ~$80 (Gold standard for brake fluid...use has been varied and no exact data was found on how long this fluid lasts)

We were very skeptical at the brake fluid claims. For all we knew, it could have been snake oil, however, we bit the bullet even after knowing how well PMU worked for us and decided to try the brake fluid out. Torque has been marketed as the brake fluid of choice to Flying Lizard and other famous race teams. With this in mind, we had to test this out to verify the findings and to do so, we employed a few test vehicles to test the fluid out. That list includes the BRZ, GTR, M3, RSX-S, and S2000 over the course of 4 months of testing in hot weather conditions.

What is not easily noted on paper or results is the pedal feel and the extremely favorable modulation you get from the compressibility of the fluid.

A disclaimer for every car owner in general, your brake fluid degrades sufficiently enough over the course of the year even when you park it full time that service/owner's manuals will recommend you to replace your brake fluid every year for optimal brake performance for even daily driven cars like Camrys, etc.
How about versus RF650?

This. Also in this very thread this.
"RBF660 (0.5L) ~$32 (1-2 track day - hint of fade at the end of each session, but pedal feel continuously gets worse per session)..
RT700 (0.5L) ~$34 (still no changes after 6 solid track days and lots of spirited mountain runs)"

I posted this in another thread, but I'm going to this one to share some unfortunate news:

Apparently the fella that makes this beloved Torque RT700 has gone out of business. Can anyone confirm this unfortunate bit of information?

Neal from @The Racers Line was suspecting the same thing.

Seems like he made a decent product. Too bad someone cant pick up this formulation and start marketing it again.

Yup, I'm sure there are dealers like myself out even more. The "owner" owes me 3 cases. He lives very close to my shop though, and I have been thinking of just knocking on his door. I was able to get a text back from Michael a few weeks ago, but nothing since.

Wow that's shaddy as hell. I wonder why he just dropped off the grid...
