I have been running this fluid in my 1987 Mazda RX7 for track days and driving schools for the last few years. It is much cheaper than some of the other high performance options and has a high dry boiling point. I have never experienced fluid boil when used in conjunction with a race brake pad.

Many other high performance fluids come in a metal container which does help with shelf life. This Valvoline fluid comes in a plastic container. Once I crack the top on this fluid, I use only the first pour in my race car and will use subsequent pours in my street cars where the fluid performance is not as cruicial and temperatures are not as extreme.

              Comments about Valvoline DOT 3 and 4 Synthetic Brake Fluid (32 oz.):

              sometimes brake issues can lead to burning hot fluid in the caliper which ends up in the lines and basically the fluid turns black. DOT4 is more resistant to this and is a better choice in my opinion

                  Brake fluid is hygroscopic,absorbs water and rots the lines and anti lock system.Flush all my cars and put synthetic fluid in when the coolant is flushed.Keep my vehicles 10 years and doing little things like using synthetic fluids cuts the wear and tear down.
