    It won't affect your warranty to use different brake fluid.

    As posted above, it improves the feel of the brakes under hard use, and also greatly reduces fade since it doesn't boil as easily.

    That being said, I still got a spongy pedal at one point on my latest track day. It only happened once in my 2nd session on the track, but never again. Weird.

    Actually, that is the ONLY cause to warping rotors. Riding the brakes, or frequently stopping hard causes the rotors to warp and can be repaired by resurfacing unless the damage is too severe.

    Getting the brakes wet while very hot (braking through a puddle) causes "heat spots" on your rotor which are visible (they look like dots usually in a circle). Rotors with heat spots can not be repaired and at that point are ruined.

    Warped rotors = left to right shaking while braking
    Rotors with heat spots = inconsistent/not smooth braking. As if the front wheels were oval or you jab the brake pedal very quickly. No steering wheel vibration.

    But to stay on topic, id say stick with the stock aircleaner until dirty. Then go aftermarket with a company of your choice.
