RBF600 is amazing stuff and $$$$. People usually think I'm lying, but I run Pentosin super DOT4 that's available at any advance auto parts in my 9 hour endurance races and without brake ducting. I'm always bleeding and flushing so the fluid I use never has time to get much water absorption.

RBF is good if you plan on leaving it in for awhile without worries since it's wet boiling point is very high. Also if you have a heavy car.

I enjoyed Castrol SRF for a long time until moving to RBF600.

Upgrade brake fluid and lines. Fluid Motul RBF600 and steel lines for sure. Helps a lot.

Pads are expensive, but you can swap them in and out after events. I love cobalt pads really and lot of confidence and no fade.

Also check all your hoses. If anything is older than 5 years, change them. One pin hole leak = blown engine.... Trust me I know :'(

But so jealous other people can run R chassis' on the street. Stupid california...
Thanks for the welcome!

Before my last track day I flushed the system with the highest temp brake fluid I could find at my local Canadian Tire store which worked fine for how hard I was pushing the car. Ill pick up some Motul fluid over the winter.

My car suffered an engine loss due to a cracked coolant hose (under the intake manifold) back in 2011. Got the car back together after a long hiatus in 2016 and made sure I replaced EVERY line and hose (brake lines included). So in theory we should have a good solid platform to learn with.

But now its snowing so we wait....

DUDE!!! I was just reading this and was thinking did I type that? I had the EXACT same thing happen. Pinhole lead in the pipes under the coolant hose, basically blew up the piston due to extreme heat....

I have a thread that converts all of those hoses to 4 layer silicone....

Here is my thread about it.
