DOT4 RBF600 works real well. also there is this blue stuff that I can't remember that a lot of car guys run that I want to try. Supposed to have a higher tolerance for water absorbion(sp?)

Should be compatible with any DOT 3 or 4 or 5.1 brake fluid. It may not be compatible with DOT 5.

Castrol SRF is the best brake fluid I have found. Yes it is expensive, but its properties far exceed other DOT 3,4 especially wet boiling point.

I purchase mine from Pegasus Auto Racing Supplies, they are located in New Berlin WI and generally have it in stock.
