I spoke with Pete about the exact same thing when he came out for my install. He said they were working on them. Let me know if you find out they've made any progress. I need a set.

It took him a year of study, written instructions, video instructions and in person instruction to figure out how to install radius bush inserts. Something as technical as backgrounds could much longer. Do you have unlimited data and messaging on your phone ?

Yep this will make it so that the clutch and brake fluid are completely separate so one won't contaminate the other.
As I understand it, under hard braking the brake/clutch fluid boils making it so the clutch pedal loses pressure. Adding the separate Reservoir help with that and also keeps brake dust out of the clutch master cyl with can cause problems.

At least that's how I understand it. but I'll defer to Pete or any of the other experts around here.

Basically. Also that the clutch fluid gets dirty whenever you miss shift or grind gears. This then in turn gets into the brake fluid, that then in turn makes you lose pressure on the clutch peddle, which leads to more miss shifts, etc etc it's a circle

Only if you use the cheapest fluid from K-Mart

Motul RBF600 Wet Boil 421F
Castrol SRF Wet Boil 518F

The Castrol Wet Boil is almost the same as ATE Super Blue TYP/200 Dry Boil. Separate reservoirs will prolong the life of the brake fluid because the fluid passing through the clutch picks up debris.
