If you don't race or do tortorous downhill runs, you won't see the benefits of DOT4 or better brakefluid.
And you still have to change them every year to get the best feel / performance since higher rated brake fluids tend to be hygroscopic, i.e. it absorbs water or nagtutubig after some time.
As for pedal feel, it doesn't depend on the DOT rating. I'm using ATE Super Blue DOT4 and pedal feel is firm. Another good brand, MOTUL RBF offers a relatively soft feel and is also DOT4 rated but actually exceeds DOT5.1 wet and dry boiling point ratings.
SS brakelines will help reduce fade as well and give consistent pedal feel under duress.
Im using slotted rotors with stainless steel brake lines for now. Stock calipers.
So you think I should stick to dot3? No use ba talaga dot4 in terms of daily driving and hard braking ( from hataw hataw) once in awhile?
Aside from the dot4... Im also geting some EBC Greenstuffs.
In a worst case scenario, should I ignore and waste the dot4 and buy another liter of dot3.. or do you think I rather use dot4 I just bought?
Do you have any feedbacks with Bendix Dot4? Its the one I have and it says it can tolerate 500deg. I know you only get that hot through racing and all.
Let me know your opinion on this pare. salamat!
