I found a few bottles of this today for $.50 a bottle, would it be safe to use this for my cars brakes? It is dot 4 and heavy-duty/high-temp and figured it would be a little better for autocross with the higher boiling point of 490+ degrees dry and 311 minimum wet. But I think it is mainly made for motorcycles and stuff for that so that is why I am asking. TIA

It'd probably work out "fair". Pretty much ever other fluid that one would consider is better, even valvoline synpower.

Go to Estrada Customs in Libertyville, IL! Great place for any body work!
I have never used the fluid you are talking about, but I have used the Valvoline Synpower and had problems with it boiling. Pretty bad. I switched to the ATE expecting the same problems, but have yet to see it boil.
