hey all, hope those of you that have snow are engoying yourselves, and jump some damn drifts for me... anyways just a heads up on the brake fluids put there


dot 3 which we probably all use is compatable with dot 4, since dot 4 has a bit higher boiling point, also dot 5 is not compatable since it is silicon based,which means youd have to totally flush your system. you can view this article a http://snowgoercanada.com

Brakes? We don nee no stinkin brakes!! J/K. Thanks for the tip. I use DOT4 on my sled and motorcycle. I also heard that once a bottle is open, you shouldn't store it since it absorbs moisture that will damage internals in the master cyl. that applies to all DOT ratings. Once you've used what you need, chuck it.

Throw away the rest of the bottle? Hmm, sounds like a waste to me.

Right Bman it is not as criticle on a car or truck. When it is being applied to a small brake system the amount of moisture is a greater percentage over all. Safe to always use new sealed container.
