Upgrading Brake Pads and SS lines

Hey guys

Am going to do SS lines and hawk hps on a non brembo car. For street driving and trips to the track, should I change the fluid to another type? Like dot 4? Is there any pros and cons to switcing to an aftermarket fluid? Thanks

Dot 4 wont boil when you are racing which reduces brake fade however dot 4 draws in alot of water and/or moisture because of its chemical properties; its not recommended for daily drivers.

I planned on moving to the Castrol high temp fluid in the spring before hitting the track again but I'm done with losing most of the pedal after 10 laps but now I guess more research is on order...

The Castrol SRF has been recommended by many at the track as it absorbs less water than most. Expensive but losing the pedal at the end of the straight can cost a Hell of a lot more!
