What fluid?? Some blue stuff my mechanic put in (sorry don't know the name but the sh#t work great....Over the next 5000 miles, I'm going to need a brake job...I was wondering, for you guys that have done it, is it worth upgrading to braided hoses....Any recommendations as to upgrading? I don't track my car, it's my daily driver but I do enjoy the occasional "spirited" drive...(okay okay I drive spirited everyday)....Never mind my post...just read answers from another thread....

Thanks

I'll take your word for it! I haven't experienced any fluid fade whatsoever from ATE Super Blue, on track days and canyon runs alike, so I couldn't justify spending that much money on brake fluid!

ATE blue was my last fluid...nothing wrong with that. The GS has higher moleculer density and is denser... therefore translates to better pedal feel

DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE!

Liquids are incompressible, regardless of the size of their molecules.

Interesting read, but taken with a grain of salt, considering it's coming from a company wishing to sell its product. Also, don't just skim past this sentence:

Perhaps pedal feel isn't the most important part to a strong braking system!

Yeah, I hear ya.

Y'know, I've got this new product coming out called iDiaz Ultra Blue. It's got higher molecular density than ANY brake fluid EVER. $50/bottle! :p
