For engine oil I use cheapish stuff, at the moment its Penrite 15w60, and change it as soon as it starts to change colour which is every couple of races typically.

For Brake fluid I running Motul RBF600

Royal purlple 50/50 mix of the racing 41 and the regular 10-40.

I ran with no oil for days around town after i blew the oil seals and the oil sensor without any damage. Saved me a large repair bill so i keep using it.

Why not run RBF600? Its cheap enuff and one of the best in testing.

I would probably buy RBF600 if I was buying brake fluid. I just happened to buy the HTX115 a couple of years ago and didn't get around to using it, so have it lying around.

I've yet to boil the factory fluid even with semi's and decent pads / new rotors, so will fix problems as they arise. Maybe I'm a pussy when it comes to braking :lol:
