Just flushed My clutch with Castrol SRF yesterday. My pedal was staying on the floor during high rpm shifts, again. It would start doing it every 4-5 weeks with Motul 600. Hopefully this stuff will last longer. I'm hoping at least twice as long since it's twice as expensive, $75 for a litre.

what's the wet and dry boiling point? I'm just curious what 75 bucks gets you.. I just had to flush mine again... but up till now I've been a big motul fan. I'm more than happy to pay twice as much to get another 100 degrees with the motul vs that regular dot3/4 stuff

SRF is the sh!t.

I put it my Firebird road race car on the track in early 06.

SRF went in on day 1 and I have never flushed it since. I crack the bleeders when compressing pistons for a pad change, but that's it.

it is absolutely the best brake fluid on the market.

The wet boiling point is supposed to be higher than motul 600. From what castrol claims, the water chemically reacts with the srf and doesn't harm it that much.

I have an LS7 clutch and my motul 600 is black after 4-6 weeks causing my clutch pedal to stay on the floor at high rpms.

I'm going to have to try it as well. I also have the LS7 and am having the same issue... mine only pops up every couple months though... not every 4-6 weeks.
