I am doing a little maintenance and was curious about 2 things really.

Which DOT4 brake fluid do you think is best?

Which Coolant is best?

The Motul brand Dot 4 fluid has the highest boiling point (that I've found).

As far as coolant, just be sure it is compatible with magnesium/aluminum. I also suggest running some Water Wetter from Redline Oils. Helps keep things cooler. Only run distilled water too.

I second what Tommy said, but in addtion to the water wetter, I put some waterpump lube in there too. But always upon always, distilled water, no antifreeze. Im sure I'll get flamed, but its what has worked for me for the last 20 years+
