    i will be honest, i have never done a track day etc where i have ever needed anything other than regular dot 4. i use genuine peugeot dot 4 brake fluid (im a tech for pug so i always have some in my box lol) and never had problems, i think the main reason for the better fluids is for track use! ps, you live close to me! lol
