Default What's the best brake fluid?

What's the best brake fluid? I am trying to research all of them so maybe some of you have something to add: The best one I found so far is Motul RBF600 DOT 4. Funny I thought a DOT 5.1 would be better but this DOT 4 has a higher boiling point... That doesn't make too much sense. Here is the link of the fluid if anybody want to read on...

What are you using it for? Racing? If not, it's not worth it.

The best brake fluid is the new stuff that isn't dirty and works well.

BTW, I have Motul RBF600 in my system. And yes, I do take her on the track every now and then.

I run RBF 600 because I track my car, but it needs to be flushed more often than regular dot 3 stuff because it "holds" water.

I flush mine twice per year. And bleed the calipers in between flushes.

Interesting. I had pretty much forgotten about that. Looks like I can add something else to do to the Z.
