    brake fluid recommendations

    im taking my 2010 wrx hatch to the streets of willow race event on sunday, and i want to upgrade by brake fluid to something a bit more stout so i don't boil it while im on the track, lose my brakes, and destroy my car.

    any recommendations of what to use and what is compatible with the subaru brake system? ive got a deal at a shop for some motul dot 4 600. for $11 a pint. am i cool with this?

    That will help with the boil, but OEM pads may / will progressively loose their ability to stop efficiently.

    I have ran into many a newer impreza with the front pads worn down almost metal to metal around 15k miles. Of course as you know the longevity of the pads mainly lays on the style of driving. I would most def. recommend stainless steel lines, different pads and rotors and a brake fluid change with either the motul or the super blue. You will notice a substantial difference in the braking. at least in my opinion.
