Brake fluid flush
on: 05 Mar 19, 07:10:08
Thinking of using this too flush through/replace old brake fluid
Is this overkill or good value

No idea really. However, unless you are hard on your brakes or do lots of track days I'd probably stick to regular DOT4.

I've not used racing dot 4 but have swapped out standard dot 4 for dot 5.1 (DO NOT MIX UP WITH DOT 5 THIS IS NOT COMPATIBLE!!!)

Dot 5.1 has different properties to dot 4

May be a useful read.
