What Brake fluid R U using??

I bought a set of braided stainless lines to replace the rubber hoses on my Camaro. Installing a set of drilled slotted Racing brake rotors.

I figured this might be a good time to upgrade the brake fluid.

Not building a pure track/race car, but will be tracking and drag racing for fun. Not my daily driver.

Input please......................

If you like spending $ buy the Castrol SRF.

I don't like spending money on brake fluid.

Just figured while the system was open, I would upgrade.

What about super blue or Motul RBF600?

I read about shelf life on brake fluid. I don't want something I have to change every six months either.

I like spending it on go fast and stay together stuff!

Don't know if I want full racing fluid.............

On the Motul RBF600 is there a shelflife where you need to change the brake fluid at different intervals like your oil?

Dan, What do you think of Super Blue?? Can you PM me some prices?

I would like better fluid, but don't want to become a bigger slave to this car than I already am.

Thanks for the feedback

Motul RBF 600....I've been running it in my camaro since August,
I love it. But do it right and flush all the factory DOT3 out.

any reason not to go with standard DOT 4 from any local parts store? If you're not spending that much time on a road course track it might not make sense to pay the premium for race fluid. JMHO

What....not spend money on my camaro....rediculous.

Will check out some other DOT 4's at Autozone, just always looking to improve the car where I can.

When you compare DOT4 fluids, look at the WET boiling temp, not the dry.
You will notice that the Motul RBF600 is more than 100 degrees higher than the rest.

How long will the Motul last before it needs to be changed out?
