Good to know. there's one down the street from me. I'll check it out. It's possible I'll just be going the SRF route next season.

Type 200 had the same wet and dry boiling points. It just doesn't have the blue dye.

The local Chevy dealer quoted me 125.00 for a brake system flush. (Didn't even ask what kind of car it was.) When I told the service writer I was supplying my own fluid, I think I blew his mind. He had to check with his manager and came back to say, we'll knock about 15.00 off then. So, 110.00 for a flush. Also, this dealer does not have a great reputation in the service department...

I called a local speed/mechanic shop that I have used in the past for other cars and he said he can't find the instructions for my ZL1, so he doesn't know if his tool would work. He's still checking. I trust him with my car, but I don't know if he'll be able to come through in time.

I'm 100% DIYer on my car, but this ABS bleed has me stumped. I can't take it to either of the aforementioned "shops", so I'm left to calling around until I find someone I've never used to work on the most important system in my car. I would really rather do this myself.

Anyone have any advice? And if you're in the northern VA area, do you have a shop that you absolutely and personally recommend?

Next track day is coming up fast. Thanks everyone.
