    Ugh I could never imagine putting blue brake lines on my car...IMHO just plain stainless would look the best and sell the most.

    Red would be sick to match my Ground Control setup.

    Hillsborough actually...I was just there last week picking up a short shifter that I bought through Lindsay, but decided to just go pick up instead of have them drop ship it. It took me a little over 40 mins to get there with some traffic.

    I vote for plain stainless steel for color. I love steel braided brake lines - it is always the first modification to my motorcyles as it does wonders for brake feel.

    Re: Steel Braided Brake Hoses

    I'd be interested if they are in the ballpark (or less) of the Goodridge Lines you can get from TireRack:
    http://www.tirerack.com/brakes/brake...ar=&perfCode=S

    They run 150 ish. If the UUC cost more, I'd want to know why/how.

    I'd prefer black lines. Won't have to worry about them getting dirty, and would look nice. 2nd vote would be plain silver.

    P.S. I'll be bringing my car into Lindsay for service in the next few weeks, so if you need a guineau pig...

    I too like red but would go for clear also. Same question as trukk on price vs. Goodridge.

    If the price is right, I would want RED all the way. To match the Ground Control parts.

    Goodridge is real good and very well known in the motorcycle racing community. I had them on all my litre size race bikes and the lines are remarkable. If they cost more than the Goodridge lines, someone better have a good reason.

    But...I'll take a set of Blue. (I do understand colored lines always cost more than black or clear)

    I think I'm gonna reserve my cash for an extra track day somewhere.




    Can someone recommend a crappy track to go to get rid of this bug???

    I think the clutch operation could be improved with the addition of a steel braided line. This certainly works on motorcycles with hydraulic clutch actuation.
