Wilwood 600 EXP brake fluid questions

Hi all, I got some pints of Wilwood 600 EXP brake fluid. I noticed on the container that it says "Race use only". Why is it for race only? I was going to have GM flush my brakes and put that in, but the race only statement makes me worry because it's still under warranty and I don't want to void it. Any thoughts or should I just go get some Motul RBF 600? Thanks!

Thanks Mike! I think I'll just use it in the 67' vette and buy the Motul for the 07. I just figured someone had used it :-)

Re: Wilwood 600 EXP brake fluid questions

I read their product information and still couldn't tell why they'd say "race use only". Normally in brake fluid, I take that to mean it doesn't have a DOT rating, really low wet boiling point, sucks moisture from the air like crazy, dissolves common seals, etc, but they claim it does everything. Of course, it should at nearly twice the price of comparable options.
