Using ATE brake fluid in 1988 944 Trubo S

Brakes

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944 turbo S; Year: 1988; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 201,000;

I experienced brake fade during drivers ed events and was informed that I should use ATE super blue fluid. I did so and find excellent brake characteristics. However, I wonder if the ATE super blue fluid will affect the brake components, such as seals. Also, does it affect the clutch hydraulic components?Second question: Must I also bleed my clutch after bleeding brakes? I was informed that this was unnecessary.I am a member of PCA for 20 years and have owned a 924 and an '83 944, but the '88 turbo S is an incredible vehicle. When I discussed preventative maintenance for this vehicle with our mechanical guru he told me the only concern was the main bearings, so I changed them. Any other thoughts for this 201,000 mile beauty?
