Is Your Brake Fluid Up To The Task?

Audi Sports Car

Redline Speed Worx would like to know if your brake fluid is up to the task of proper operation in summer heat, and mid summer track season?

Why is Brake Fluid Service So Important you ask?

There are a couple of common reasons to flush your brake fluid regularly contamination and age. Brake fluid is hydroscopic, it absorbs water, and water saturation decreases the boiling point of the fluid. Under hard braking a tremendous amount of heat is generated from the friction of the pad and rotor contact.

This heat can cause your brake fluid to actually boil within your brake lines. When the brake fluid boils, it creates air pockets within your brake lines. This causes problems because air compresses under pressure(say from pushing down the brake pedal). This causes a mushy pedal and reduction in braking ability. Brake fluid is used in braking systems because it doesn't compress.

There are many ways for moisture to enter your brake system. Condensation from regular use, washing the vehicle and humidity are the most common. Most of this is unavoidable because the brake fluid reservoir needs to be open to the atmosphere. It has a small hole in order to avoid a vacuum being created by the brake pads wearing down.
