Re: TQC Brake Upgrade, DOT 5.

  Higher boiling temp for track use?
  Any street benefits?<

500 degree F boiling temp, better lubrication of brake parts,
won't absorb water.  As I implied in my last post, you can't
have any water in the brake hydraulics at all.  If you are a
stickler for maintenance you will do fine.  If you are inclined
to let the car sit in humidity for long periods of time without
changing the brake fluid you may have trouble.
